Nancy Sinatra on mentor Morrissey

Nancy Sinatra has hailed Morrissey as her ''best mentor''.

The 75-year-old singer worked with the former Smiths frontman and animal rights campaigner on 2014 track 'Let Me Kiss You', which was penned by the heroic star, and she learned a lot from him.

She said: ''He was my best mentor in a way because he didn't have the self-serving thing that Lee [Hazlewood] had.''

Though Nancy likes Morrissey's version of 'Let Me Kiss You', she thinks she did it better.

She said: ''I like mine better. So does he!''

However, Nancy has lost touch with her pal in recent years and is desperate to reconnect with our Moz.

She said: ''I miss him. I can't find him. Maybe you should write that for me: where are you? Get in touch!''

Nancy's earlier career success was partly guided by Lee Hazlewood, and her famous father, late singing legend Frank Sinatra, was delighted with her soul-influenced pop sound.

She admitted to The Times newspaper: ''He was thrilled. He owned the label [Reprise] -- he wanted the records to sell.''

Though she still enjoys performing, Nancy expects her tour next year to be her last.

She said: ''I think it's my last chance. I can't imagine doing 'These Boots Were Made for Walkin'' on a walker.''

Let’s hope Nancy and Morrissey reconnect soon!
