Jack is one of the most talented artists in every perspective I've ever known - if he didn't have that one weakness, distraction (he knows what it is - it cost him )the world would know him as a super-star today...from song-writer "Great Balls of Fire" and many more to on-stage singing, tap dancing, rope spinning, drumming (understudied Sammy Davis Jnr in "Golden Boy")to writing the eulogy for James Dean's funeral (they were together at drama school)to poet, painter and actor he does the lot...but not a Jack of all trades...he masters them all! If only, Jack...it cost you "Great Balls...and much more..." always your friend...
