The love story of his parents
He was born to his parents, Tony Bennett and Patricia Beech.
The love story of Tony and Patricia began when he noticed Patricia in the crowd at one of his shows and was instantly captivated by her beauty.
In his memoir "The Good Life," Tony mentioned his first ex-wife, Patricia.
He wrote that he met and fell in love with a young woman named Patricia Beech in July 1951 when he was singing at Moe's Main Street in Cleveland, Ohio.
He recalled noticing Patricia from the stage sitting ringside with her date and completely being taken away by her beauty.
He soon asked for her number, and they were on their first date the next day. Patricia soon moved to New York to be with her future husband.
According to Tony, he surprised Patricia by announcing his intentions during the show.
He was fortunate that she wanted to marry him as much as he wanted to marry her, he wrote.
They got married in 1952. Patricia was just 19 years old at the time.
As Tony was at the height of his career, thousands of female fans were devastated hearing the news of their marriage, and even approximately 2000 of his female showed up to boycott weddings with all dressed in black as a symbol of mourn.

His father's extra-marital affair was the reason behind their divorce
His parents' married slowly started to shake after she gave birth to him and his brother.
His mother stayed at home looking after them while his father toured overseas. Their distance relationship was already affecting their relationship.
His extra-marital affair with actress Sandra Grant with whom he later ended up marrying, was the last straw.
When Patricia called him at the hotel, Sandra answered the phone. They were officially separated from that moment on. Their divorce was finalized in 1971.
Following their divorce, Danny and his brother lived with their mother in the family home in Englewood.
He managed his father's career for over three decades

According to him, he always had an appreciation for the art of what he does.
When he first started working with his father, he felt that when he watched him perform, his music transcended for him, so he was convinced.
He got his father to the people, put him in front of the college folks at the time, and put him in the shows.
He also negotiated a new deal for his father's former label, Columbia, the record label which had dropped him in 1971. He introduced him to Lady Gaga's music.
Danny said as a marketer, he believes that one needs to listen.
For a true artist with a legacy, history, and future, one has to listen to what that artist wants to achieve and then, as a marketer, understand and figure out ways that you are going to be able to nurture that and reach it.
His father, during an interview with New York Times in 1999, expressed how fortunate he was to have someone in Danny.
