The Lombardo Story, Guy Lombardo and The Royal Canadians, the band's life and times, by Beverly Fink Cline, is an eBook re-issue of a 1979 book published by Musson Book Co., a division of General Publishing, Toronto, Canada.
Featuring an introduction by Lebert Lombardo, the book is written with co-operation by members of the Lombardo family, who kindly spoke on many occasions with the author (whose grandfather was a childhood friend of Guy, Carmen and Lebert Lombardo) and provided her with photographs from their personal collections.
The book also features reminiscences and photographs about other legendary performers, songwriters and venues, contributed by other band members, friends and fans. These memories range from stories about Louis Armstrong, John Jacob Loeb, the Roosevelt Grill, the Waldorf-Astoria, Guy's speedboating victories, to, of course, the band's longtime association with the song Auld Lang Syne and New Year's Eve.
