Social distance doesn’t mean social dissonance. – El Gorto, The Pandemic Diaries
When your songs become elevator music, then we can talk about stardom. Otherwise, who gives a damn? — El Gorto
Easy Listening has never been so difficult. I blame boy bands. –– El Gorto
Dear El Gorto,
Dean Martin is not a long-haired hippie who takes LSD, speed, etc. When he is in a movie it is not sexy like most other movies. He does not need a band to make music because he himself fills the air with a romantic song. There are still some who prefer relaxing music to rock ‘n’ roll.
— Jim Johnson, Wood River, Ill.
You got a question or do you just need to rant? I bet you drive your whole family nuts. Keep it up. There’s a whole cottage industry for guys like you, (bumper stickers and truck stop novelty items).
Listen, pal. I admire your grit and your unabashed man love for the great Dean Martin, but you’ll never catch me watching a Matt Helm movie.
— El Gorto

Never get into a contract that you can’t escape. Trust me on this.
