"He Left Us Too Soon When He Croaked On Top of That Chick For Hire"
As I was reading the article in last week's New Yorker about Tony Bennett recording a duet with Lady Gaga, I thought occasionally of an SNL skit from a few years back called "The Tony Bennett Show." In it, Alec Baldwin does one of his funniest bits--impersonating the irrepressible, and often inappropriate, old crooner. This weekend, watching SNL, I was happily surprised to see Baldwin reprising the role. The whole thing is pitch perfect and hilarious.
