Frank Sinatra & Dean Martin to Receive Las Vegas Star Tributes

The Las Vegas Walk of Fame will install sidewalk star memorials to Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin in ceremonies at 1 p.m., Monday, Feb. 22 in the Flamingo showroom. 

Deana Martin will speak on behalf of her father, Dean. 

So, why did these mega-stars of the Las Vegas heyday get their stars after Tony Sacca and Wayne AllenRoot?  Simple:  These latter guys were paid for by the recipients’ families, while Sinatra and Marine families didn’t see the need to pay for an honor that virtually existed anyway through their mass audience appeal for decades.  

The Walk haunchos, apparently, had a soft spot in their heart and is financing Sinatra and Martin on their own dime.  That’s nice. 

Money talks- and for sure in Las Vegas.
