Frank Sinatra might have been a better judge of character than we thought. Gordon says he had no time for Bono:
BONO admits he annoyed Frank Sinatra so much on a video shoot for their 1993 cover of I’ve Got You Under My Skin that the crooner stormed out.Not, unfortunately, to put in a call to his friends in legitimate business.
As ever, though, this story turns out to be not quite what Gordon sets up:
The U2 frontman said: “We turned up at a bar to do the shoot but our cameras didn’t work – twice.So rather than Bono annoying Frank, it was a failure of technology.
Frank was known as ‘One Take Frank’ so when we asked him to do it again he bellowed: ‘What’s going on?!’
He said we were amateurs – and disappeared.”
Still, I like to think that Sinatra was annoyed by Bono as well. Because, after all, who wouldn't be?
