Teen Age Idol

I’m too old for this. Teen age idol? Aw, c’mon.

I was madly in love with Johnny Mathis (who?) then traded him in for Marlon Brando who I thought was very cerebral and deep. I loved (still love) the Beatles. the Doors and the Stones, but they weren’t my idols … just great bands I enjoyed.

I had a bit of thing for Harry Belafonte, but he was hot.


it was more than 50 years ago. Seriously. That’s half a century.

If it was ever relevant, it has long passed over into mildly amusing trivia of the distant past.

    1. Hardly anyone remembers how sexy Marlon was when he was young. He was sizzling hot … and the Beatles, well, they were just great and still are. I don’t think they’ve ever been topped, but I’m prejudiced 🙂


    1. Islands in the Sun and Jamaica Farewell … never equaled. They had a bio-documentary of him on (I think) Netflix. He was the real deal in every way … and oh, my … that voice. Johnny Mathis is another one of a kind voice. I was SO disappointed when I learned he was gay. That meant he would never fall in love with me! It was my first romantic tragedy 🙂
