NYTimes on the Nancy Sinatra, 'Rock Goddess'

Nancy Sinatra, Rock Goddess

By JODY ROSEN

Published: September 26, 2004

Los Angeles

"ROCK," Nancy Sinatra said, "is a business for young people. It's not for people who care about things like hair and makeup. And sleep." Ms. Sinatra was drinking iced tea in the garden bar of a West Hollywood hotel on a sultry September afternoon. On her right wrist, she wore a toy bracelet with imitation diamond-studded letters that spelled the word "rock." "It's one of those play bracelets — you put whatever letters you want on it," she said. "I should probably put a `C' in front of the `R.' That might be more accurate."

Ms. Sinatra doesn't exactly look the part of a tousled rock 'n' roller. She's a trim, elegant mother of two grown daughters who clearly cares about her hair and makeup, and she has little taste for sleep deprivation, shoebox-size dressing rooms and other indignities of the rock 'n' roll grind.

But at 64, Ms. Sinatra has become an indie rocker. This week, Sanctuary Records will release "Nancy Sinatra," a sleek, tuneful album that finds her surrounded by an all-star team of admirer-collaborators, most of them decades her junior: American alternative rockers (Calexico, Jon Spencer, Pete Yorn), leading Britpop songwriters (Morrissey, Jarvis Cocker of Pulp), arty experimentalists (Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth), rock legends (Steven Van Zandt of the E Street Band, U2). Thirty-six years after she last cracked the Top 40, Ms. Sinatra has made her finest album, and one of the more irresistible pop records of 2004.

Trend-watchers may be tempted to compare "Nancy Sinatra" to another meeting between an older star and young rock turks: "Van Lear Rose," the Loretta Lynn album produced by Jack White of the White Stripes, which appeared earlier this year. But while "Van Lear Rose" gave Ms. Lynn's music a makeover, adding an unmistakably White Stripes-like garage rock snarl, "Nancy Sinatra" is a different case. Rather than overhaul Ms. Sinatra's classic sound — a mix of go-go rhythms, country twang and orchestral pop — her collaborators have paid it homage. It's a tribute that invites audiences to look again at Ms. Sinatra, who has been misunderstood and underrated for much of her career.

WTF? i never could stand her and personally think Patti or Chrissie (or any of the chicks who front bands, e.g., shirley manson) are more rock goddesses than she'll ever be.

I remember seeing her on TV, probably on the Larry King show, after her father died in 1998. She had apparently undergone the procedure which pumped the lips full of something, colagen maybe, in order to make them fuller. It looked like she had two salamis stacked in the middle of her face.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
