Dave Michael Barbour
Birth: May 28, 1912
Long Island City
Queens County
New York, USA
Death: Dec. 11, 1965
Hollywood
Los Angeles County
California, USA

Musician and songwriter. A well-respected guitarist who worked with some of the major leaders of the Big Band era. He was working with Benny Goodman when he met Peggy Lee, whom he married in 1943. The union with Lee produced a daughter, Nikki Lee, as well as the popular compositions "Manana (Is Good Enough for Me)" and "It's a Good Day." Their marriage ended in 1952 and Lee went on to greater success and three additional marriages. Late in life, Lee wrote in her autobiography that shortly before his death she and Barbour were considering remarriage. After her death, their daughter had Barbour's ashes interred with those of Miss Peggy Lee. (bio by: Chris Mirando)
