Bobby was one of the few people I had ever known who really wanted to do something for me.
The one appearance that I made for President Kennedy, he, as I understand, had his choice or was asked to make a list of the people he would like to have perform, and I was fortunate enough to be one of them.
I'd retired for about six or seven years. Coming back to the business, I found that I was sort of not quite a has-been, and it wasn't a new career, it was just kind of difficult to crack the nut, so to speak.
In this business it's difficult to make plans. I think the plans follow you and find you.
It's really impossible to project ahead even six months in this business.
I think homes should reflect the individuals and their individual taste rather than someone else's.
I think that's one of the most difficult things in any marriage - in order to build anything, you must be together. You can't build anything over the telephone.
Bobby had faith in my ability as a singer.
Bobby Troup and I have been working together for about a year in clubs. We work in the same club.
I'm sure any vocal teacher that listens to me would rather cut my throat than do anything - I do everything all wrong - but I think for me that's the best - because I don't think I have a voice so I think what I project would be style - if I learned to sing I'd lose my style.
I do everything all wrong, but I think for me that's the best, because I don't think I have a voice.
