Why he might be annoying

He was an alcoholic.

Why he might not be annoying
His brothers Lindsay and Dennis supported his claims of abuse.
Bing reportedly called him 'Bucket Butt,' insisted on weekly weigh-ins and beat with a belt until he bled if he gained weight.
After he was diagnosed with inoperable cancer, he said, 'I finally got my shit together. I stopped drinking. I stopped smoking. I stopped fighting the fact that Bing Crosby was my father. And now look what's happened.'
