Lindsay Harry Crosby (January 5, 1938 - December 11, 1989) was an American actor and singer.


Early life

Lindsay Crosby, son of Bing Crosby, was born in California and named for his father's closest friend and Thoroughbred horse racing partner, Lindsay Howard. He was educated with his three brothers at Bellarmine College Preparatory in San Jose, California. He was remembered by his friends for having a special laid back clever wit like his father Bing. He performed with his brothers Gary, Dennis and Phillip Crosby as the Crosby Boys during the late 1950s in nightclubs and on The Ed Sullivan Show on American television.


The Crosby Boys had a promising start to life, but the pressures of show business and their own inability to cope blighted their lives. They were greatly affected by their mother's decline into alcoholism and a premature death from cancer. Heavy drinking and their emotional problems took their toll. On December 11, 1989, Lindsay committed suicide with a rifle blast to his head. He was 51. His distraught brother Dennis never recovered from this trauma. He also committed suicide with a shotgun in May 1991, aged 56. Gary later died from cancer in 1995, aged 62 and Phillip died from a heart attack in 2004, aged 69.
