Born in Hoboken, New Jersey, on December 12, 1915, Frank Sinatra rose to fame singing big band numbers. In the '40s and '50s, he had a dazzling array of hit songs and albums and went on to appear in dozens of films, winning an Oscar for From Here to Eternity. He left behind a massive catalog of work that includes iconic tunes like "Love and Marriage" and "New York, New York".
As a founding member of the 'Rat Pack', alongside Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin, Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop, Sinatra came to epitomize the hard-drinking, womanizing, gambling swinger — an image constantly reinforced by the popular press and Sinatra's own albums. With his modern edge and timeless class, not to mention hits like 1968's iconic "My Way," even the radical youth had to pay Sinatra his due. As Jim Morrison of the Doors once said, "No one can touch him".
After a brief retirement in the early 1970s, Sinatra returned to the music scene with the album "Ol' Blue Eyes Is Back" in 1973 and continued to release occasional albums and perform live until his final concert in 1995 at the Palm Desert Marriott Ballroom in California.
On May 14, 1998, Frank Sinatra died of a heart attack at Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. He was 82 years old and had, at last, faced his final curtain. With a show business career that spanned more than 50 years, Sinatra's continued mass appeal can best be explained in the man's own words: "When I sing, I believe. I'm honest."
