Following a romance that began in the 1980s, Tony and Susan married in 2007. She has worked as a schoolteacher and has claimed to be a long-time supporter of her spouse. Tony, who is 40 years Susan’s junior, claimed that he took a photo with Susan’s parents, Marion and Dayl Crow, during a concert in San Francisco in 1966 when Susan’s mother was pregnant.
«As luck would have it, Marion was expecting Susan at the moment!» «Knowing the fantastic turn of events that followed, it’s a photo we all giggle about,» he wrote in his memoir, Just Getting Started, published in 2016.
He also revealed how she first met him at his concert when she was nineteen years old, and how that was the beginning of their romance. He noted in the book, «When she was nineteen, she got tickets to see me perform at the Masonic Temple in San Francisco, and she put in a request to say hi backstage after the event, probably not anticipating a response.»
«When I received the request, it pleased me that someone her age was so enthusiastic about my music. I not only consented to say hello to her backstage, but I also asked her to be my date for the evening, and that’s how it all started… foretold by a 1966 backstage photo!»
Susan has been Tony’s carer since he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, in addition to being his wife. Susan talked about the challenge in an interview with AARP in February 2021, after he broke the announcement. «There’s a lot about him that I miss,» she added in the interview. «He’s not the old Tony anymore.» «However, when he sings, he’s Tony.»
