OMG! It just dawned on me! Where the hell are Steve and Eydie?
Call the FBI.
Amazingly they are still alive. She retired in 09 but Steve is still out there...
He is no longer having an affair with Sally Ann Howes.
RE 2 - Please tell more. Never heard that before. Also, anyone know what their son does ? I remember their other son died years ago, from some unknown ailment, suddenly. They really are 2 old school singers - surprised to hear she retired - did her voice go ? She was quite something in the day.
R3: son (David) is a doll. He is a music composer, married, adorable child (adopted) and they lived happily ever after.
Someone was watching the Today Show this morning...
Blame it on the bossa nova
Although I don't know whether they mentioned it on the Today Show this morning (or any other morning), Steve Lawrence and Sally Ann Howes began an affair while appearing together in "What Makes Sammy Run," which opened in 1964. The affair almost broke up his marriage. Her marriage to Richard Adler (Pajama Game, Damn Yankees, and vehicles for Howes) continued until 1966.
What was on the Today Show, R5?
Oh, it was nothing. Steve Martin and Edie Brickell (sic?) were on, performing a song this morning and Matt Lauer introduced them jokingly as "Steve and Edie".
Martin and Brickell were really great, incidentally.
That must have been why Eydie insisted on being cast as Steve's costar in his next Broadway foray Golden Rainbow.
Good riddance. They used to get on my last nerve. When they were on Carol Burnett's show, I would change the channel. Awful.
PBS aired a Jerry Lewis performance in Vegas (I think) about a couple months ago. Jerry was taking Q & A from the audience and Steve came up to the mic to ask questions and schmooze with Jerry. I'll tell you, he looked great! His hair was dyed but I chose to overlook that. He looked and sounded like he could still do the Carol Burnett Show.
He did not sing but Jerry did tell him that Sinatra used to tell Jerry that Steve was the best singer of his day.
I actually miss Steve and Eydie. And Sammy.
Where the hell is Eydie Gorme?
In DIXIELAND, silly!
They play a lot of their stuff on the Siriusly Sinatra channel. Eydie really did have a terrific voice.
Eydie is a really sweet woman. She was friends with my mother in the 1960s and 1970s, and was just a nice, swell woman.
Steve was a great lay who was incredibly skilled with his fat hog.
Who'd have ever thought Truly Scrumptous was a dirty whore? Is nothing sacred?
Eydie is older than Steve, and I heard she was doing rather poorly. She is a super talent!
One time Streisand was asked in an interview who SHE admired as a singer---since she had the voice of a generation. She mentioned the girl, Tennille, from Captain and Tennille and Eydie Gorme.
Cute clip, R14.
Ever hear her sing in Spanish?-Her songs are so beautiful and romantic. You can hear them on youtube. Liza beat her out for the lead in Flora The Red Menace.
My parents have an LP of Eydie called "Eydie In Love", arranged and conducted by Don Costa, who did many things with Sinatra.
It's an original album, not a reissue. Great album.
What did they have they don't have now?
more shoulder more shoulder
How many of us have fingered our pussies to an Eydie Gorme album? Be honest.
Your friend, Julie
Love them!! She's not well... can hardly walk. Hip or knee problems.
"One time Streisand was asked in an interview who SHE admired as a singer---since she had the voice of a generation. She mentioned the girl, Tennille, from Captain and Tennille and Eydie Gorme."
Absolute bullshit. Streisand NEVER gives credit to other singers or tells the truth about being influenced by any of them. Most she would say is liking folk singer Joni James as a teen. Streisand even used a famous arrangement of "Snowbound" written for Sarah Vaughan, and she wouldn't mention Sarah's name.
Eydie, big number:
"Eydie is older than Steve"
Yeah, at least six years -- and they married when he was 22!
She did the defninitive version of "If He Walked Into My Life Today".
Slow night in Farmville, OP?
I saw Steve and Eydie open for Sinatra in 1992. They were in great voice and were pretty funny. I enjoyed them more than Sinatra.
r31...thinks they are a sophisticate because they rent a one bedroom in Astoria.
R28, I don't appreciate being called a liar just because you didn't happen to see the Streisand interview I saw. You are obviously a flake.
R28, r33 is absolutely correct about this. And besides, if you learned to read comprehensively you'd see he did not say that Streisand was influenced by ANYBODY, merely that she enjoyed two other female singers whom she named.
[quote][R31]...thinks they are a sophisticate because they rent a one bedroom in Astoria.
R33, if you want to insult R31, please get your grammatical house in order. "They are a sophisticate"? Who is "they"? Steve and Eydie? Surely it can't be R31, who is one person. And Steve and Eydie can't be a single sophisticate. So there is no way your sentence could make sense. That vitiates the effect of trying to denigrate R31. Why not just accuse him of having a small penis?
R4, is a "music composer" something like a music pianist or a music flute player?
No, R38, composer means writer or creator or constructor. Kind of a simple concept. I have no idea if he plays any instrument however even if he did that is not what he's know for.
