Bono says he Got Under Sinatra’s Skin

One Take Frank … Bono and Frank Sinatra


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.
The U2 frontman said: “We turned up at a bar to do the shoot but our cameras didn’t work – twice.
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.”
