Frank Sinatra: Was he the inspiration for Johnny Fontane?

We remember Frank Sinatra today.   He was born in New Jersey on this day in 1915.  He died in 1998.

Was he the greatest male vocalist of the 20th century?   I don't know but he has to be among the finalists.

According to a recent article, Frank Sinatra confronted Mario Puzo, the author of  "Godfather".  According to the story, Sinatra berated Puzo one night in a Los Angeles.  Sinatra was offended that he may have been the inspiration for Vito Corleone's godson or Johnny Fontane. 

We will never know but it makes for a great story.
