Look at this lyric he wrote...

RUN FOR YOUR LIFE

Well I'd rather see you dead, little girl
Than to be with another man
You better keep your head, little girl
Or I won't know where I am

You better run for your life if you can, little girl
Hide your head in the sand little girl
Catch you with another man
That's the end'a little girl

Well you know that I'm a wicked guy
And I was born with a jealous mind
And I can't spend my whole life
Trying just to make you toe the line

Let this be a sermon
I mean everything I've said
Baby, I'm determined
And I'd rather see you dead

I'd rather see you dead, little girl
Than to be with another man
You better keep your head, little girl
Or you won't know where I am

You better run for your life if you can, little girl
Hide your head in the sand little girl
Catch you with another man
That's the end'a little girl

hmmmm. its oj simpsons theme song.

When Nixon himself passed away, people still paid their respects and found positive things to say about him - should we have only focused on the Watergate scandal? How about Derrick Thomas and John Lennon and JFK or Bill Clinton for that matter - should people not remember the good that they did just because of their conduct in their personal lives? Was James Brown a perfect person? Obviously, he was not...but neither are you, me or anyone else.
I agree with you - we should be respectful - but why strain to say what a great person somebody is? You can say JB was an incredible musician and then stop - I watched a tribute to him the other night and the guy was amazing on stage - but don't strain to make him out to be some wonderful person when his personal life is a train wreck - Derrick Thomas was a poor excuse of a human being also - I just don't like the message it sends ... talk about how he was a great pass rusher and stop - a business associate of mine was close to one of Thomas's seven mothers of his kids - that's why I mentioned him in one of my previous posts - what they were saying in the media did not match at all - the guy was a pathetic loser with the way he treated his kids especially...you're right - nobody's perfect, but we shouldn't be dishonest and make them bigger in death then they were in life...

Yeah, but at least he recognized it in himself, was disgusted by it and with the help of Yoko Ono (he always gave her credit, so I will too) he changed.

I have trouble liking Sinatra because of what I know about him. I can't hear his voice without thinking about the cruelty of the man behind it.

Dude - I love the Chairman of the Board - in fact I will be singing 'Fly Me to the Moon' at karoake tonight - and I used to love John Lennon until you shared those wonderful lyrics he wrote -- what do you know about Sinatra? - I've heard all the stuff about his mob ties - is this what you are referring to? -

He had a personal cruel streak, according to Dominick Dunne. In his book The Way We Lived Then: Confessions of a Well-Known Name Dropper, he relates a story where Sinatra paid the maitre 'd of a restaurant $50 to punch Dunne in the face as he sat for dinner. Dunne says the real cruelty wasn't in the punch; it was that he employed a flunky to do it, a man who was not in a position to refuse and who was friendly and familiar with Dunne; it was the humiliation of the man that was the message Sinatra sent along with the blow.

Here is an excerpt from a transcript of an interview with Bob Costas.

DUNNE: Sinatra for some reason never liked me. I had stage managed him in "Our Town" the musical version of "Our Town" with Sammy Cahn and Jimmy Van Heusen music. And Paul Newman and Eva Marie Saint were -- it was incredible.

And I don't know if it start there'd or what, but it was the first time I ever saw a star really behaving badly. And anyway, so it always -- and the years passed. And it was never nice. So I was in a nightclub called the Daisy. And a waiter tapped me on the shoulder. He was somebody I knew very well.

And he said -- I looked up at him like this. And he said, oh, I'm terribly sorry Mr. Dunne, Mr. Sinatra made me do this. And he hauled off and hit me, punched me. And it was awful.

And I could look over and there's Frank sitting at the next table like with pleasure in his eyes. And he's sitting with Nancy, his daughter, and Tina, his daughter both of whom I knew and with Mia Farrow whom he was then engaged to. I knew them all. It was this awful experience.

COSTAS: We have about 15 seconds. As you told the story, he paid the guy $50. The guy could be bought off that cheaply? He was Frank Sinatra, but you were a regular customer, too.

DUNNE: Fifty bucks was a lot of money in the '60s. That's when it happened. And he was a good guy. He was a phrased (ph) Italian. And he was afraid not to. And he cried afterwards. He followed me out to the car. He cried, this poor guy. But he was afraid not to do what Frank told him.

Apparently so. I believe he left a 6 or 7 year old son.

That he did. He also left a common law wife by the name of Tomi Rae. Being married doesn't mean that a person isn't gay or bisexual, though. I believe Tomi Rae was his 5th wife.
