    Frank Jr. & Steve Tyrell

    I was checking out Itunes a short while back. I was buying Billy May for President. I looked at the popularity rating on the Songs. And two of the Songs with the highest ratings of the Frank Sinatra Jr songs were "Girl Talk" and "The One I love".

    I think Frank Jr. and Tyrell should do an full duet album together. I think I would go over really well.

    Does anyone how any opions good, bad, or indifferant?

    Lee: Yes, he should have said "Franklin."

    A few years ago we looked it up because none of us was certain about the Franklin name. He was christened Francis Wayne and not Franklin.

    Apparently it was my dad who wanted to call him Franklin after FDR but Mom won. Since I had always been told it was Franklin, I actually put that in print in my books so the confusion is my fault. I'm sorry. This is an example of "you can't unring a bell."

    You just did, Nancy. In the future, I'll just point anyone who says otherwise to that post.

    My grandfather named his #3 son Franklin Delano and to top it off his last name is Roth - FDR

    Frankie and Steve Tyrell CD is an interesting idea. I really like them both and their duet Girl Talk is wonderful.

    I thought Everyone would respond in a good way. Now the Question remains. What Songs does everyone think they should do, single or together?

    I think they would work good on The Bobby Darin Song "Two of A Kind"

    I do think Steve Tyrell + Frank JR have charisma together. I would love to see a show with the both of them together. When ever I see Steve Tyrell's show he always speaks highly of the Sinatra Family.

    Bobby Darin + Johnny Mercer wrote the song Two Of A Kind. I love that CD.

    I'm glad Frank Jr's real name is Francis! When he was born FDR was still President and very relevent...but now it sounds much cooler as Francis

    This is one of my favorite albums ever! "Two of a Kind" is pure entertainment through and through. Try and find the Bing Crosby/Louis Armstrong album. It's arranged by Billy May and features new songs and special material by Johnny Mercer. It's almost as good as the Mercer/Darrin outing.

    I just read that Frank JR's real name is Francis. And I thought his name was Franklin (from Nancy's book) because on an invitation I gave him on 4/16 I put Franklin Wayne Emanuel Sinatra. Oh he probably thinks I'm a real idiot.

    The Sinatra Social Society would like to honor him at our Summer Wind dinner in July + a friend of mine made a special invitation for him.
    Sorry Frank, I really thought your name was Franklin.
