A larger than life figure in the world of music, Ramone worked with some of the finest artists in the industry, spanning across multiple styles and genres of sound and entertainment. Having worked previously with Frank Sinatra in the mid to late 1960s, not to mention running the sound board at his New York studios during the recording of Sinatra’s album “L.A. Is My Lady” in 1984, Ramone was determined to work with the singer once again on some sort of recording project, and by the dawn of the early 1990s, Ramone’s desire would become a reality when he signed on as producer for one of the most controversial (at least, to critics and Sinatra fanatics) benchmarks in the Chairman’s career. It was called “Duets.”
Tom Cruise reportedly pressured Leah Remini to get a segment on Scientology pulled from airing on CBS.The “Mission Impossible” star urged the ex-Scientologist to call CBS chief Leslie Moonves and convince him to pull a “60 Minute” piece about the church, using her weight as one of the network’s stars on the series “King of Queens.” “I got a call from the church and Tom (Cruise) to call Les Moonves and use my influence to squash the story,” she told The Hollywood Reporter.

I could see him from the neck down – the three big fingers, long black nails and green rough skin. It was strong and angry. I looked in my mirror and saw a blur of green running. I could see his toes and then he jumped on the roof of my car. I thought I heard a grunt and then I could see his fingers through the front windshield, where they curled around on the roof. I sped up and swerved to shake the creature off.”
