Quotes from the news wire:
He was incredibly personable, very giving, very caring, very compassionate. The press painted him with that rough exterior, but for the most part, he was just a regular guy. I remember I had gotten a call that my dad was being taken to a hospital in New York. As you can imagine, I wasn’t in the most jovial mood. Frank was doing his best to cheer me up… I remember I went to the bathroom and when I came out, lo and behold, there’s Frank. He had emptied out a pack of unfiltered Camel cigarettes. He stuck like four cigarettes in each ear, three cigarettes in each nostril. And he had about 12 cigarettes across his lips. And he’s just staring at me like that.
Frank told me that was a very intense relationship, a very tempestuous one, she was absolutely drop-dead beautiful. He said, ‘She could drink me under the table. As far as language, stuff came out of her mouth that could grow hair on the wall.’ He also said, ‘I should have known upfront that anything that burned that hot was bound to burn out. But while it was going on, I was having a ball.'.
His life had changed so drastically, he was not accustomed to not being in the best of health. That bothered him. And then not being able to spend time out in public - that took a big chunk out of his world. He was at peace on stage performing. And in reflecting on his life, he realized, ‘This is what the rest of my life is going to be.’ He was in a melancholy place really.
