Frankie Laine Has Bypass Surgery

Frankie Laine, the popular singer of the 1940s and 1950s, was in stable condition Friday afternoon after undergoing quadruple arterial heart-lung bypass surgery at Mercy Hospital in San Diego, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Laine, who still performs regularly at age 71, entered the hospital Wednesday complaining of chest pains.

Laine, who lives with his wife, actress Nan Grey, in Point Loma, is best known for his hits "That's My Desire," "Mule Train," "Jezebel" and "Rawhide."
