Subject: McGuire Sisters Now Down to One

Written By: LyricBoy on 01/05/19 at 7:06 am

Celebrated member of the wholesome McGuire Sisters pop singing act of the 50s and 60s, Christine McGuire (full name, Ruby Christine McGuire) has passed away at the age of 92; she was the oldest of the sisters.  :\'(

They were a monster act in their time, but in 1968 they found themselves generally shunned by the industry because it came out that youngest sister Phyllis (who is now the sole survivor) was partying big time with Chicago mobster Sam "the Cigar" Giancana. (They were introduced by common friend Frank Sinatra, and Sam's daughter Antoinette alleges that Phyllis was simultaneously partying with John F. Kennedy, but I digress...)  It was not until the early/mid 1980s that the McGuire Sisters could book some decent venues again.  :-\\

So now only one member remains (Phyllis), as noted above.
