There are at least two artists by this name: 1. Vic Damone is an Italian American singer originally named Vito Rocco Farinola; born 12 Jun 1928 in Brooklyn, NY, USA. Perry Como visited the theater & Vic took him to his dressing room, to perform for him. Como liked the performance enough to take him under his wing & referred him to a local bandleader. Then, he took the name Damone (his Italian mother's maiden name).
