Telling it like it is (maybe)

Had to repost this quote by jazz harpist Corky Hale from the Bebop Spoken There Archives: 
Corky Hale: "Mel (Tormé) is probably the most talented of all the singers and I think that the only reason he didn't make it as big as Sinatra is that he is somewhat difficult to get along with." - (Jazz Journal September 1997).
And Frank wasn't?
