GUEST,Brían Bing Crosby (54* d) RE: Bing Crosby 28 Sep 02


I was fascinated about how he remained so popular without performing live, a fact most of his fans didn't seem to realize. He appeared everywhere. He seemed to have a good understanding of how to use the media. I am also interested how technology helped drive taste-tenors could be heard clearly over bands in acoustic recordings, electronic recordings favored baritones.

I have a friend who grew up in Galway who describes his music career as "Throwing the guitar in back of the pick-up truck and not caring what song Bing was singing on the radio...

It demonstrates Bing's influence on the other side of the pond as well.
