Quotes of Columbo

“ Being chased by Columbo is like being nibbled to death by a duck. ”

- Peter Falk

“ My only real claim to fame is that I was an original. Before me there were the people like Russ Columbo, Perry Como, Crosby, Sinatra… they were more or less, stand-up singers. I revolutionised all of that. I imagine that I paved the way for what was to come, which was to be called rock and roll… and which was really no more than a bastardised version of rhythm and blues. ”

- Johnnie Ray
