Christian Slater Talks Frank Sinatra on 'Lopez'Christian Slater counts himself lucky to have seen Frank Sinatra in concert. About 20 years ago, he sat in an audience of "'Goodfellas'-type guys" in a huge Las Vegas dining hall. The guys seated around him were friendly, one telling Slater that he used to be a Golden Gloves boxing champion.

As Sinatra began to perform, the ex-boxer "starts singing along with him," Slater recounted on 'Lopez Tonight' (weeknights, 12AM ET on TBS). "So you can't really hear Sinatra ... All I got is this guy next to me, and he's already let me know he can kick my a--."

Still, he said, "It was an incredible show, and to see Sinatra live was remarkable." Yes, "see" is the appropriate word.
