Frank Sinatra’s address book auctioned

Los Angeles, June 16 (IANS) Legendary singer Frank Sinatra’s address book has been sold at an auction for $8,960.

The leather address book of the legendary singer, who died in 1998, at the age of 82, read like a who’s who of the showbiz world, featuring the names and numbers of friends such as John Wayne and Sidney Poitier, as well as influential political figures, reports nypost.com.

The book, which dates back to the 1970s, was filled with annotated contacts of industry insiders like Jerry Weintraub, who was Elvis Presley’s promoter.

Meanwhile, the front of the address book features a fortune cookie message that reads: “Beware of friends who are false and deceitful.”

The auctioning of the address book comes a matter of weeks after it was reported that the singer’s custom-designed California villa had gone on sale for $3.9 million.

Frank, who lived in the property in the mountains above California’s Coachella Valley for more than a decade in the 1970s, is said to have used his private helicopter to fly guests in for parties.
