With the exception of Ol’ Blue Eyes himself, the whole Sinatra clan turned up this morning for Nancy Sinatra’s star ceremony on the Walk of Fame. And without exception, they’re all named Nancy or Frank. Nancy brought her mother Nancy, her brother Frank, who in turn brought cousin Nancy, little Frankie, and baby Nancy. Every time a photographer shouted “This way, Nancy!” about 14 heads turned. I can’t imagine the confusion growing up in the Sinatra household.
Amongst the pals gathered, who were mostly made up of Palm Springs retirees, Vietnam vets, and Mafia types, people of note who were not named Nancy or Frank included singer Keely Smith and veteran DJ Rodney Bingenheimer (of recent documentary The Mayor of Sunset Strip). Oh, and Nancy wore jeans. JEANS! To her star ceremony! What is the world coming to? (More photos after the jump)
