    HA! I love the photo choice (Gotti boys) to help us visualize the “three assholes”. There was a hair gel shortage in Howard Beach because of deeze guys!
    Only kidding. Please don’t have me wacked, I’m a family man.

    I love these little moments with Frank on stage.
    I miss the Palladium days. Good times! Thanks for the post.

    I wonder if Bobby(Mr. Whitney Houston)Brown has ever listened to Bobby Brown? I don’t think it would make it on his iPod.

    Crumpet- small round muffin-like bread; good looking woman

    Crumpet = implies they were British.

    Gotti boys = Daddy’s blood money.
