Swing, man. Sinatra.

Blue eyed letter...
 I love letters from the past. I discovered this little gem on the net today and had to share. Frank (yes we are on first name basis) is one of my all time favourites and the fact that he wrote a letter about the amazing George Michael almost made me screech with delight.

Still feeling the strain following his hugely successful solo album debut three years previous, George Michael told the LA Times ' Calendar Magazine in September of 1990 that he would be shunning the limelight prior to, and during, the decidedly low-key release of his new album, Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1; specifically there were to be very few interviews, no promotional music videos, and no tour. Many fans were understandably displeased with his approach, but the reaction of one person in particular will forever stand out.

The text of the following letter - written by Mr. Frank Sinatra - appeared in the same magazine the next week. Have a little read. I love the slag he uses, so informal yet firm with the young George... Sigh, how I love you old blue eyes.
