Frank Sinatra

FEATURES
By MIKE LITTWIN | March 8, 1994
Even if you didn't watch the Grammys show, you heard about it. They gave Sinatra a lifetime achievement award. And in the middle of his rambling acceptance speech, they cut to commercial, like Sinatra was Jerry Vale or somebody.They dissed Frank.A few years ago, Frank would have broken some knees for less. But Frank is 78 now, and he doesn't exactly evoke terror anymore.He does occasionally evoke confusion though. Sometimes, he rambles. Sometimes, he even forgets the words to the songs he defined.

What does it mean to speak of Frank Sinatra these days?Merely utter the name, and a host of conflicting images crowd in, each one vying with the others to define who the man is. Is he Frankie, the skinny young crooner who drove the bobby-soxers wild? Is he Ol' Blue Eyes, the eternal saloon singer forever awaiting the wee small hours of the morning? Or is he the Chairman of the Board, the self-made music mogul and undisputed ruler of American popular song?To the romantic, he's the essence of a love affair, a man who understands the glory of new love and the agony of heartbreak, and sings about both with a voice smooth as whiskey and just as intoxicating.
