Chez Paree, Chicago. Songs 58 Mins. Bing Crosby’s four sons are launched on the cabaret scene in high style. The frères – Gary, Phillip, Dennis, and Lindsay – have a superlative act that is likely to abash those skeptics who surmised the boys would trade merely on the lustrous family name.”

His first wife was a Las Vegas showgirl, Sandra Jo Drummond, from whom he had two children. His second wife, Mary Joyce Gabbard, was an airline stewardess. The two also had two children together.

In another interview, Lindsay was hurt by these words and commented, “I don’t know how our dad could feel he’s failed us as a father. Reading that he had said that in an interview really shook me up. I only hope someday that I can give my son a tenth of what Dad has given us.”
