Frank Sinatra eyes captured our hearts more than seventy years ago, but his hold—on us as well as the entertainment industry—certainly hasn’t loosened. He was a man that came from humble, but interesting beginnings. With a fire fighter father (who also moonlighted as a boxer) and a politico mother (who also ran a free, but illegal abortion clinic out of her home) who is to say what the future held. He was expelled from high school less than fifty days into it and worked as a paperboy and a shipyard riveter before his musical career took off. He learned music by ear, but never learned how to read it. So how did he go from rowdy young man to the man we hear ringing in the New Year?
