The one and only Frank Sinatra was a huge get for Larry King, who ranks the 1988 show as one of his favorites. The Voice was heard on CNN calling writers of kiss-and-tell books “pimps and whores,” and saying he would support then Vice-President George (H.W.) Bush for president. More intriguing, though, was the Chairman of the Board’s revelation that even he experienced stage fright. “I swear on my mother’s soul,” Sinatra said, “the first four or five seconds, I tremble every time I take the step and I walk out of the wing onto the stage.” Ol’ Blue Eyes stepped out for his final public performance in 1995, three years before his death.
