Francesco Paolo Lo Vecchio

[(from an interview for the book "Off the Record: An Oral History of Popular Music"] . . . if I had it to do over again, there is one thing I would change.

When Mel Brooks
advertised in the show business trade papers for a "Frankie Laine-type" voice to sing the title song for Blazing Saddles
(1974), he expected a good imitation of the real Laine. Instead, Laine himself showed at Brooks' office two days later, ready to do the job. He got the job and sang the Oscar-nominated title song again at the Academy Awards the following year.
