  • Go See Sinatra

    "You're going without me?" My not-yet-6-year-old daughter stood resolutely between us and the door. "Yes," I said. "Your mom and I need to go." "Without me?" "We only have two tickets." "Why?" My profoundly puzzled daughter asked this question in complete sincerity. The story that answers it began several weeks before that moment of familial crisis in a midtown Manhattan hotel. I was driving to work one March morning in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. -- listening to talk radio. The lead local news story that day had nothing to do with politics or government but had global significance. Seventy-eight-year-old...

    Nancy Sinatra had some strong words for CNN after the news outlet published an article on its website with the headline “Nancy Sinatra not happy Trump using father's song at inauguration.” News broke this week that President-elect Donald Trump and his wife Melania will dance to Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” as their first dance at the Liberty Ball on Friday. CNN quoted what seems to be a now-deleted tweet from Nancy Sinatra that read “Just remember the first line of the song” in response to a question about her father’s song being used during the inauguration. The first line of...

    In his first dance as commander in chief, President-elect Trump will take the dance floor with Melania to the tune of Frank Sinatra's "My Way," according to a source with knowledge of the official inaugural balls. The Washington Examiner has learned that Trump plans to take the floor as the 45th president at the Liberty Ball just as Nashville-based jazz singer Erin Boehme delivers opening song "Mack the Knife," which will be live broadcast for tens of millions of Americans to watch on TV.

    My introduction to Frank Sinatra came by way of “New York, New York” (1979) and “My Way” (1969). Needless to say, I was not a fan. Even as a pre-teen, the over-produced bombast came across as someone, dare I say an old man, trying too hard. Besides, I was born in 1966 and came of age in the early 80s. By law, I was required to worship Springsteen, Seger, Zeppelin, Petty, Van Halen, Def Leppard, and AC/DC, not some crooner belting out anthems about how it’s up to you my way. With a memory as bad as mine, I don’t have...

    On December 12, 1915, in a four-storey tenement in Hoboken, New Jersey, a baby struggled into the world. He weighed a formidable 13lb 7oz but the doctor punctured his eardrum while delivering him with forceps and left scars on his neck and cheek. Worse still, he didn’t seem to be breathing. His grandmother had to hold him under cold running water to prompt his first gasp.  But he survived it all and exactly 100 years later we are still under the spell of Francis Albert Sinatra. The centenary of the birth of Marty and Dolly Sinatra’s only child is, rightly,...

    Today’s post comes compliments of Mark Steyn, writing about one of the greatest come-backs in musical history: According to Scott Fitzgerald, there are no second acts in American lives. Which isn't true. But there are few second acts like Frank Sinatra's…the man who had lost his fans, lost his voice, lost his agent, lost his movie contract, lost his TV show and lost his record label is back at the microphone. He takes his time, colla voce, and declares himself: I've Got The World On A String Sittin' on a rainbow Got the string around my fi-i-i-inger... As Mr. Steyn...

    “Frank is just like you. Just like me. Only bigger.” — George Schlatter, a friend Let’s get one thing straight. There can’t be another Frank. These days, you don’t operate on that plane and get away with it. Was he in the Mob? Was he an informer? Did he ruin Ava Gardner, sleep with Marilyn, throw a plate against a restaurant wall just because they cooked the pasta too long? Come on, al dente! Act like that today and you’d be TMZ’d faster than you can tweet Alec Baldwin. But that’s just behavior. Flip on your TV and you’ll understand...

It's his first since 2012's Tempest. It's out February 3 via Columbia, and you can check out the full tracklist below. Dylan produced it under his Jack Frost alias. Listen to "Full Moon and Empty Arms" below. In a press release, Dylan said: It was a real privilege to make this album. I've wanted to do something like this for a long time but was never brave enough to approach 30-piece complicated arrangements and refine them down for a five-piece...

    I was watching 'The Detective'(1968 - Frank Sinatra / Lee Remick) tonight. Around 20 minutes in Sinatra is having a flashback to the moment he met his wife, Lee Remick. (Remick was 'smoking hot' by the way!) As Remick walks up the steps of a NYC museum Sinatra walks right by her and is stunned. Just as the scene opens you can see two young men and an attractive girl in the immediate background. The man to the right is in a tan raincoat. It's Leonard Nimoy!? I'd swear it's him being used as an extra. He simply disappears off...

    Mia Farrow has admitted that Frank Sinatra may be the father of her son, instead of Woody Allen. Rumours about the parentage of her son Ronan, 25, have long dogged Mia Farrow, and she finally addressed the issue in an interview saying the legendary crooner was 'possibly' his father. But on Wednesday, in reference to the claims, Ronan Farrow put in his two cents by tweeting: 'Listen, we're all *possibly* Frank Sinatra's son.'
