10 Years After His Death, Sinatra Set To Generate Income

A new era is beginning in the career of FRANK SINATRA even if the Chairman of the Board isn't here to participate, writes THE L.A. TIMES. The iconic singer died MAY 14, 1998, and the 10th anniversary is being marked with a flurry of activity, including a new U.S. postage stamp with his likeness, lavish new CD and DVD collections, a major revival of his films on television and high-profile media appearances by his children.
Late last year, the SINATRA heirs signed a pact with WARNER MUSIC GROUP that will bring OL' BLUE EYES back in a big way, not just as a digitally resurrected entertainer but also as an advertising pitchman and, potentially, the name on the marquee of a feature film, a BROADWAY show and a casino and resort.
"Those are some of the things that have been discussed. We will see," said TINA SINATRA, the singer's younger daughter and the heir most involved in the estate's day-to-day enterprises. "The amazing thing is how untapped all of it is. By design we have done very little, particularly once he died."
