during sinatramania, dozens of training bras were thrown onto the stage while he performed. Sinatra called the Rolling Stones, 'cretinous goons,' which is what Presley called him. John Lennon was inspired to write his only #1 single, WHATEVER GETS YOU THROUGH THE NIGHT after reading an interview with Sinatra where he was quoted saying that very thing. On that same album, WALLS AND BRIDGES, was included a song called NOBODY LOVES YOU WHEN YOU"RE DOWN AND OUT which Lennon 'gave' to Frank Sinatra in the famous PLAYBOY magazine interview ( Christmas 1980) that was on the newstand shelves across the nation the night Lennon was assassinated, Dec. 8, 1980. Lennon went on to say, "But don't ask me to produce it for you."...his only #1, that is, until he was posthumous. To further flesh out the quote, John said, ' why don't you record this one, better than the pieces of nothing you usually record.'
