Captain Lou Albano Frank D’Amico Sr. Captain Lou
You cannot forget Lou Albano, I remember him back when I was a child, Lou was very good friends with my father “Frank D’Amico Sr.” Lou use to come to our house in the Bronx with my dad. Lou use to get on his hands and knees and give us kids horsey back rides on his back, we had so much fun with him, and there was always lots of laughter when Lou Albano was around.
My dad use to hangout with Lou and he use to take me and my brother with him to Lou’s bar on Provost Ave, it was a little hole in the wall place, but it was a great place for us kids to have some fun back then.
Lou use to cook muscles for all the guys, and one day the wrestler Bruno Sammartino came down to the bar and he played the piano for everybody with me sitting on his lap. I will never forget those special moments in my life. My dad loved his friend Lou Albano and Lou Albano loved my dad, they were good friends in the 60’s.
