“[Harry James] wanted me to call myself Frankie Satin! Can you imagine? Is that a name or is that a name? Now playing in the lounge, ladies and gentlemen, the one an’ only Frankie Satin…if I’d’ve done that, I’d be working cruise ships today. Besides one fake name in the family was enough.” – Frank Sinatra, as quoted by Pete Hamill, Why Sinatra Matters (p. 71)
(Frank’s father, Martin, had been a boxer, and bar owner, in Hoboken under the name of Marty O’Brien.)
