Frankie Lymon & The Teenagers

Frankie Lymon (1942-1968) and the Teenagers were a New York doo wop group consisting of Joe Negroni, Herman Santiago, Jimmy Merchant, and Sherman Garnes, but centered around the extraordinary talents of their lead singer, 13-year-old Frankie Lymon. Lymon was credited with their first big hit, "Why Do Fools Fall in Love" (in the early '90s, a federal judge ruled after a lengthy trial that Lymon hadn't written "Why Do Fools Fall in Love" -- another member of the Teenagers had). His wise-beyond-his-years vocal and performing abilities not only made the Teenagers a group several notches above the competition but made Lymon the first black teenage pop star. Though only together for a brief 18-month period, Lymon & the Teenagers exerted an enormous influence, spawning several "kid" vocal groups and providing initial inspiration to Berry Gordy to model his entire Motown production approach around Lymon's original vocal style. Inexplicably, the group split into two factions at the height of their success, and neither had a hit again. Lymon died from a drug overdose at age 26. Diana Ross, Smokey Robinson, Len Barry, and his principal protégé, Michael Jackson (whose early recordings with the Jackson 5 are virtual re-creations of the early Lymon sound, merely updated) all show the influence of Frankie Lymon & the Teenagers' groundbreaking work. ~ Cub Koda, Rovi

This may take a couple days to see results, if enough people get involved, we can change the world, with this simple element we've been missing for years, and no, this does not add to smog, the burning of wood produces different type of molecule, than vehicle emmisions , think about this for a second :)
Hie, i solved humanities drout issues: a simple campfire helps nature run its course, ive experimented for years, and tis the season so buy marshmallows , wheat crackers , hershey bars and gather round the campfire... : 0 this really works folks

and two Puerto Rican members, Herman Santiago and Joe Negroni.
The Teenagers' first single, 1956's Why Do Fools Fall in Love, was also their biggest hit. After Lymon went solo in mid-1957, both his career and those of the Teenagers fell into decline. At age 25, he was found dead in his grandmother' s bathroom from a heroin overdose.<2> His life was dramatized in the 1998 film Why Do Fools Fall In Love.
Franklin Joseph Frankie Lymon (September 30, 1942 – February 27, 1968)<1> was an American rock and roll/rhythm and blues singer and songwriter, best known as the boy soprano lead singer of the New York City-based early rock and roll group, The Teenagers.

wow never knew he was African American. I wonder why after his death the need to go to court to prove who wrote a song. Do this when both parties are living. Funny ..........

Iam 13 year old I would kill to live in the 50s or 60s those songs was the best ������������
My auntie grew up in the Bronx and she would visit her friends in Harlem and listen to Frankie Lymon and his friends sing! What a tragedy that he left us so soon. A talented tragic figure. She also got the chance to meet Herman Santiago who could blow as well! They were treated shabily by managers and the record company. May.
But Herman Santiago live on with the great sound of the teenagers
Mhmmmhmmmm love the oldies!!!!!: ) my kind of music;) my friend hates it
Who breaks up at the height of their success, only to die,from an overdose. What a waste !! He could have gone on a lot further than 25, and a lot more hits RIP Franky !!!
