    I recently saw "Sinatra: All Or Nothing at All" and the guy's life was amazing. As an entertainer, not only did he make women swoon for 7 decades, but he was a man's man as well. I always thought it was old people's music until I developed an appreciation for the man, his voice, the arrangements and overall talent. Now I think he's cool as shit.

    This video is an example of his coolness and awesomeness that they showed on the show. Howard-related because Howard is the polar opposite of Sinatra's manliness and sexual prowess.

    I made a thread after I watched part 1 last night and stated that Sal Governale is better than Sinatra

    Was also a pioneer for racial equality. This at a time when even President Kennedy dis-invited S a m m y Davis Jr. from the inaugural ball because he had recently married a white woman.

    Somewhere in everyone's heart lies the echo of a Frank Sinatra song.

    Another classic....one of my favorite Sinatra tunes. One of the most distinct voices ever. And oh so fucking cool.

    My aunt used to tell me stories about when she went to see him perform on stage. she said he was such a puny little stick figure. All skin and bones with no muscles at all.
