Joe Pesci Recorded An Album In 1998
Most people know Joe Pesci as the quintessential mob guy from classics like Casino and Goodfellas. Some people might know him from his 1998 lounge album Vincent LaGuardia Gambini Sings Just For You. Yes, Pesci made an record as his character from My Cousin Vinny. It sounds exactly like you think it would. You might ask yourself, why would an established actor like Joe Pesci do something like this? Before he was in Hollywood Joe was started out in the music biz. In the 1960s, he tried to start a musical career, playing guitar with several bands, including Joey Dee and the Starliters. The position of guitarist in that band was taken several years later by Jimi Hendrix. In 1968, he released the album Little Joe Sure Can Sing! (billed as Joe Ritchie), on which he sang covers of contemporary pop hits. He's also responsible for creation of the Four Seasons. He here is singing the timeless classic "Take Your Love and Shove It(up your big fat ass)"
