What would you like to do?
I would also wonder. I am to related to fanny Crosby and have many times been told that I am related to Bing. I know for sure that Crosby family that spells their name Crosbie… is the same as Crosby and was split by a very old fued. But I know I being a Crosby am related to Bing. I will definitley try and find out. I also know that my brother was named after a Nathaniel Crosby who was the father grandfather etc of Bing. So I will later give that exact info.
Bing (born "Harry") Crosby was born in Tacoma, Washington.
5'7", according to http://www.celebheights.com/s/Bing-Crosby-1601.html 5'7", according to http://www.celebheights.com/s/Bing-Crosby-1601.html
He died of a heart attack on a golf course in Spain
No. Bing Crosby died in 1977 on a golf course in France.
Yes he is.....I'm one of his great niece -lexie :)
In movies or shows a lot of times a guy beating his wife was wearing the white sleeveless undershirt, hence the "wife beater"
im sure its White beater, but i still say wife beater, i got a strong Jersey accent so when i say it , it sounds like wife beater
Although he has been accused of doing so there is no proof, so one would assume that he did not. It is possible that his children fabricated that story to gain attention. Of c…ourse there is the possibility he did, we probably will never know for sure.
Three of his children have stated VERY publicly that Bing was a physically and emotionally abusive father, one admits to the use of corporal punishment but denies it was abusi…ve. Hard to say: some people exaggerate their stories in order to get publicity, and some abuse victims deny their victimhood. You can take your pick.
Some where around $80mm but after the family paid estate taxes there was very little left. Lots of land holdings but little cash.
Crosby's eldest son wrote a critical memoir, 'Going My Own Way,' showing his father as cold, remote, and both physically and psychologically abusive. Two other sons stated Cro…sby abused them as well.
Certainly no other popular entertainer sold as many Christmas records! It should be noted, there are numerous Theological flaws in not only White Christmas, but many of Crosby…"s yuletide songs. Some- such as Beginning to Look a lot like Christmas- play up the commercial angle- Five and Ten, toys in every store, etc- but seem to imply the Christmas Spirit is both Man-Made and endogenous which is not the message one associates with (Gloria), or O Holy Night) One of his songs-Home for the holidays- sounds like a trade song for say, Howard Johnson"s- if you analyze the song- it does not specifically mention Christmas or even Christmas customs- It is only accidental that Interstate Travel is a Christmas Custom!- again a resemblance to (beginning) It may have originally been written for Thanksgiving.- also it targets American scene- not Jackie Gleason show- and one wonders if nationalism has ANY place in a Christmas song- given its Cosmopolitan aspect.
Not quite. In his will, Bing stated that his children would not receive any part of their inheritance till they turned 65.
