“LAS VEGAS — Elvis Presley once told Deana Martin, “They call me the King of Rock and Roll, but your dad is the King of Cool.”
From his solo career to his appearances with the Rat Pack and his infamous Celebrity Roasts, Dean Martin made the Las Vegas stage his home. Known for his smooth and effortless style, Martin has become a timeless Las Vegas icon. Dean Martin would have turned 100 on June 7. We celebrate the “King of Cool” with this tribute featuring photos and video from the Las Vegas News Bureau archives. In addition, the News Bureau has produced an exhibition in the Las Vegas Convention Center featuring exclusive photographs from its archives and rare Las Vegas memorabilia.”
