Dick Haymes

So much has been written about Dick Haymes, unfortunately everyone always ends their sentences with, “it’s a shame, his personal life was such a mess”.

He rarely allowed his problems to reach an audience, perhaps that is why he was so hard on himself; he never wanted to disappoint his fans with anything less than perfection.
