“One time I had drinks one time with Dan Lennon, the younger brother who is their manager, and I said, ‘Dan, give me something naughty about the Lennon Sisters, they can’t be this perfect, you know, something dark.’ And he finally said, ‘They’re stubborn.’ That was the best he could come up with! At one point I was having trouble photographing Andy Williams. I was talking with the Lennon Sisters backstage, and they were asking me if I was having a good time. I mean, entertainers asking the photographer if he’s having a good time? They said, ‘Oh, Cathy will call you for him. He’ll do anything for Cathy.’ And sure enough, I got to see Andy Williams, three times.”
