Frank Sinatra Jr. passes away at the age of 72 due to cardiac arrest while on tour.

Frank Sinatra is a name that will be remembered through the ages for his magical, enigmatic voice that cast a spell over everyone in the room. He was one of the most popular crooners that dominated the blues since the 1930s.

He sang so many hit songs that are still covered by so many artists today. But none could cover them quite so closely, in a voice that was almost identical to his, than Frank Sinatra Jr. Frank Sinatra’s only son who also opted to come into the musical industry as a singer and other than some original work, spent his lifetime performing his father’s music.

He started off early before he was 19. He performed with his the Tommy Dorsey band which was a version of the collaborative style with which his father had started with two decades prior. He had observed his father’s career very keenly and he was following in his footsteps.

He never had a hit like his sister Nancy Sinatra but he did keep appearing and performing some of his own original music and his father’s songs in Las Vegas and elsewhere. He continued releasing a handful of albums and making occasional television appearances.

Now at the age of 72, Mr. Sinatra was on a tour where he was staying in Daytona Beach, Florida where he passed away due to cardiac arrest. The confirmation of his death was made by Nancy Sinatra on her Facebook page. She told the world that Frank Sinatra Jr. had passed away due to cardiac arrest while on tour. According to NYTimes, she remembered him as a great son, brother, father, uncle.

Frank was born as Franklin Wayne Sinatra was born on Jan. 10, 1944. He was kidnapped outside a casino in Nevada when he was 19. He was freed two days later after his father paid a ransom to his kidnappers who were arrested and executed later.

He then accompanied his father on his tours and by 1980s, he accompanied him as a conductor and musical director. He was married for two year and is survived by his son Michael Sinatra. He was never bitter about his lack of success. He said that he was trying to sell a type of music that was antique in the modern times.
