“I got started in this business selling shoes, what do I know? Five bucks a day in Paterson, NJ, selling shoes. Ten thousand shoes. A guy walks in, offers me a job as a singing waiter, $6 a week and I'm a bellhop during day. As a waiter, I'm a little inexperienced. I don't know muscatel from beer. As a singer, I'm OK.”
