This guy is so famous in the Philippines and his songs is much requested at videoke bars.

His song "My Way" is so notorious because many people argue because of this song and kill each other sometimes.

I got Frank Sinatra's 'Best Of' album and I like every song in it. Plus I always hear his songs, considering everyone in the family is into musical stuff.

He is indeed a legend. Have you read The Godfather by Mario Puzo? One of the characters in there is loosely based on him. I don't remember exactly what his reaction was but it's not that good.
