    It's too bad Sammy Davis was never even close to as popular as Louis Armstrong yet felt the need to make very insulting comments towards him. Sammy Davis outlasting the Beatles? It's too late for that - the whole world loves the Beatles, Sammy Davis is remembered for hugging Nixon.

    I am a wedding curator I work in "the square" (Indy, Columbus, Detroit, Chicago) and I make serious cash. The first thing I did was get rid of wedding bands who sound like Bon Jovi but they're playing 50s pop songs. I found serious musicians who can do Sammy Davis Jr. numbers and the people love it. People say Sammy Davis Jr. will last a lot longer than the Beatles.

    The Jefferson's Theme "Movin' On Up" is on Best Of Sammy Davis, Jr. & The Mike Curb Congregation. Not his best stuff, unfortunately.
