I knew Sinatra for 38 years. He was like my father. Frank Sinatra was my ‘dad.’ He treated me like his son. He gave me the best advice about singing, about this and that… He was a very sensitive man, very astute, one of the sharpest men that I ever met in my life.

Mick Jagger’s fans bought records with their allowances. Sinatra’s people bought them out of wages.

There were screaming girls, I had to learn as a blind person how to run to a limousine otherwise they’d take my clothes off and stuff. I thought to myself ‘how could this happen?’ I mean I could see it, Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, The Beatles, but Jose Feliciano? It was a mystery to me.
