ANDY WILLIAMS


"A doctor named Ross MacLean administered LSD and another hallucinogenic drug, mescaline, to me in different doses and supervised my trips." - Moon River & Me, by Andy Williams

Andy Williams's wife was tried for murder.

Allegedly, Andy Williams had an affair with Bobby Kennedy's widow.

Williams was in his dressing room at the Ambassador Hotel when Bobby Kennedy was shot there in 1968.

Andy and Bobby Williams

A year after Bobby Kennedy's death, Andy named his newborn son 'Bobby' Williams. Williams served as escort to Ethel, during events in the 1970s.



Andy Williams, born in Iowa, had a strict, Presbyterian upbringing.

The Williams family moved to Los Angeles, and in 1944, the Williams Brothers appeared with Bing Crosby on the hit record "Swinging on a Star".



Aged 16, Andy Williams's voice , aged 16, was allegedly used to dub the voice of 19-year-old Lauren Bacall in the film, To Have And Have Not.


After World War II, Andy Williams, aged 22, began an affair with comedienne Kay Thompson, aged 40.

In 1960, in Las Vegas, Williams met and then married 18-year-old, French-born showgirl, Claudine Longet.

Among their friends were Senator Bobby Kennedy and astronaut John Glenn.

Andy Williams discovered The Osmonds and helped bring fame to the Jacksons.

In 1975 Andy divorced Claudine; one cause was the rumour linking Williams with Bobby Kennedy’s widow, Ethel.

In 1976, Longet was charged with fatally shooting her boyfriend, alpine ski racer Spider Sabich, in Aspen

Allegedly, a blood sample taken from Claudine showed signs of cocaine use.

Because of procedural errors by police, the evidence was inadmissible in court.

Longet claimed the shooting was accidental, and eventually received 30 days in jail. 


Andy Williams spoke up for Claudine (pictured) in court.

Shortly thereafter, Longet went on holiday in Mexico with her defense lawyer Ron Austin, whom she married in June 1985. 

In 1991, Williams married Debbie Meyer, a woman 30 years his junior.

Funny I read this article and less than 5 minutes later I stumbled across this one... on an entertainer I have not thought of in years.

"The VERY colourful truth about the king of the crooners: He was Mr Middle of the Road. But few Andy Williams fans know his wife was tried for murder - or the rumours of his affair with Bobby Kennedy's widow"

OOOH aangirfan...I had NIL idea about ethel-with her 11 kids....and
Andy????

I knew only that Andy adored his Claudine....

and in 1972, I gave birth to my first born; I was
completely in LOVE with my husband, father of....Vietnam veteran, who scored a MID for leading his 'troops' into killing
a number of the Viet Cong enemy....but I did not know this, then....
when I came home from the hospital, he (my husband) had completely cleaned the house, and played my most favourite Andy Williams LP 'Where do I
begin'...Love theme from Love Story, starring Ali McGraw and Ryan O'Neale...
I DO now GET the MIND CONTROL stuff....AND the LIES we have been told and sold, by freaking idiots who are paid squillions, called 'politicians' and who are, in reality,
usually NO MORE than MORONS
except for MSM upholding them as
SUPERIORS, (in reality, SLUDGE)

BUT
there are still people like me, who 'get' Love and 'truth' and 'principle'.

They would be
The Christ.
To be crucified AT ALL COSTS.
Nevertheless,
In God we Trust.
RIP Andy Williams, and thank you for your marvellous music, into our
lives:
your Voice and your Love, even if misguided...like most of US sinners and fools
Bless xx
