Esquire magazine published an article in 1966 called “Frank Sinatra has a Cold” by Gay Talese. It’s rated one of the best magazine pieces of all time because it’s credited with starting what came to be called New Journalism.
I hadn’t read it before so I was reading along, being a Frank Sinatra fan, and I came across a curious passage where Frank Sinatra tried to pick a fight with Harlan Ellison. I had to ass this along to anyone who hadn’t read it. Pretty entertaining.
If you have $22 million to spare Frank’s house in Bel Air is for sale. Check out the pics here.[Via Ace of Spades]
