Bing Crosby

May 3, 1903 – October 14, 1977

Harry Lillis “Bing” Crosby was a talented singer. His rich baritone voice epitomized the easy-going crooner of the 1940’s and ’50’s. He was a box office and record sales titan for more than two decades.

But, enough with the niceties.

Bing was also an incredibly…how to say it…”grumpy” individual. Rumors and stories of his abusive relationship with his family are numerous. Whether they’re true or not?  Not for me to say.  So, no need to dive into them here.

Bing was fond of golf (and the wacky weed) and had just finished a round in Spain on October 14, 1977 when he had a heart attack.  “That was a great game of golf, fellas,” he said. Then he died.  So it goes.
