Re: Frank Sinatra dead at 82

I have over the years listened to great songwriters try to sing....Over all
it has been a disaster.  Most singers do not write, score, and produce their
own music...they sing other peoples words and music.  Great ones like Frank
Sinatra couldn't even read music...it was just a natural thing with him.
Again most Great Song Writers can't SING!
