Michael Nigro, Sr. 

Michael Nigro, Sr. , is a drummer extraordinaire, having been the drummer for singer Al Martino for 26 years,
until Al's untimely passing.

Thanks to Michael for the following letter and photo,  and his story:) 

As a 9 year old, I would write to Reprise Records multiple times asking for an autographed photo of Sinatra. They would always respond and send me a photo although not autographed. Here's one of their responses to me dated March 26,1970.

I did finally get an autographed Sinatra photo a few months later thanks to my dad who wrote to Sinatra when he was appearing in Las Vegas. I wasn't even upset that Mr S inscribed it to my father "Lindy" instead of me! It's been framed on my wall since 1970.
