Frank Sinatra's Aging in Rhythm

Jeffrey M. Lyness, MD, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, School of Medicine & Dentistry, Professor, Department of Psychiatry, Director of Curriculum, Office of Curriculum & Assessment, Offices for Medical Education, Medical Director for Continuing Medical Education, School of Medicine & Dentistry, University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, NY

Frank Sinatra (1915-1998) was among the most popular, influential, and admitted performing artists of the 20th century. At the same time, his personality and personal life were among the most controversial of all public figures. This presentation will use images, audio, and video clips to illustrate Mr. Sinatri's professional journey across six decades, including examination of the narcissistic ambition and bouts of depression, suicidality and ongoing alcohol abuse that shaped his life. We will pay special attention to how he dealt with his own aging process, including how he continued to tour in concert well into the dementia that would eventually silence him as an artist and as a man. His story holds rich implications for considering the creative resilience potential in aging and for the limitations to such resilience posed by mental illness and functional impairment.

Dr. Lyness does not have financial relationships with commercial interests.
