Empires may fall, but savvy emperors can enjoy cushy exile.

Visit his theater in Branson, Missouri, and you'll find the blue-velvet curtain (what else?) on the main stage stitched with genuine fourteen-karat gold. Visit his Web site at www.bobbyvinton.com and you'll find the gift shop frequently sold out of the Vinton Spirit Body Mist (4 oz./$7.00). Yes, the Stones and the Fab Four put an end to your Birthstar's run atop the early-sixties pop charts (he had four #1 hits from '62 to '64 and none thereafter), but they never threatened the true source of his power, which was his commercial hammerlock on a vast segment of the American pop audience whose tastes ran more to martinis than to marijuana. Bobby Vinton prospered through popstrologically lean years by packing nightclubs and theaters from Vegas to Atlantic City week-in and week-out, for four decades and counting. Some call him the biggest casualty of the British Invasion, but shed no tears for the Polish Prince. For in the end, he didn't just survive the Beatles, he handed them (via the Stones) the infamous business manager Allen Klein, and in so doing helped hasten their eventual downfall. Your Birthstar may have bestowed upon you a vulnerability to the sneak attack, but he also gave you the will and the patience to exact your revenge by living well.
