Belatedly bowled over

Sinatra honored at the Hollywood Bowl

The Hollywood Bowl made amends to Frank Sinatra posthumously on Friday — opening night of the 2005 season — by inducting him into its Hall of Fame.

The first time Sinatra played the Bowl, many on the board then were opposed to having a popular singer perform at the temple of classical music.

Nancy Sinatra, accepting along with sibs Tina and Frank Jr., said, “The Bowl owes my daddy,” adding that by the end of that 1943 perf, “the Bowl moved from the red to the black.”

Violinist Joshua Bell and country crooner Trisha Yearwood also were inducted during the evening, a fund-raiser for the Bowl’s Music Matters charity.
