On Green Dolphin Street
In the world of'professional entertainment,' I wasn't faring much better. I was working weekends
The management allowed us to play one  'twist number' per night. The rest of the night we were
supposed to play "Happy Birthday," "Anniversary Waltz" and "On Green Dolphin Street." I wore a white dinner jacket and bow tie and black pants and sat on a bar stool and played the electric guitar. I got so sick of it that I quit, put the guitar in the case, stuck it behind the sofa and didn't touch it for eightmonths.
