A longtime resident of New Jersey, Harvey Bell holds a master of business administration from Texas A&M University. Beyond his professional pursuits, Harvey Bell enjoys listening to music, including songs by famous singer-songwriter Frank Sinatra. While many people know Sinatra was a great singer, these little-known facts about Ol’ Blue Eyes reveal new sides to the iconic crooner.

Frank Sinatra’s explosive fan base resulted in part from a hype campaign by his publicist, George Evans. Evans paid girls $5 to scream in the audience as Sinatra performed to create a frenzied atmosphere.

Sinatra was named a communist sympathizer by Senator Joe McCarthy and the House Un-American Activities Committee for his role in the short film “The House I Live In,” in which he tells several bullies to stop picking on a Jewish student.

One of Sinatra’s favorite haunts is still open for business. Located in Santa Monica, Chez Jay is a historic dive bar where the Rat Pack–the famous group that included Peter Lawford, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., and Sinatra–used to hang out. It is still open for business seven days a week.
