b. 30 Sept 1942, Washington Heights, NY, USA, d. 28 Feb 1968, NEW YORK, NY, USA. Frequently billed because the ‘guy question’, Lymon initial got into the music business after teaming up with an area all-vocal quartet, the Premiers. The second option comprised Jimmy Vendor (b. 10 Feb 1940, NY, USA), Sherman Garnes (b. 8 June 1940, NY, USA, d. 26 Feb 1977), Herman Santiago (b. 18 Feb 1941, NY, USA) and Joe Negroni (b. 9 Sept 1940, NY, USA, d. 5 Sept 1978). Lymon became a member of them in 1954 and quickly afterwards these were authorized to the Gee label because the Teens. Their debut, the startling ‘Why Perform Fools Fall In Appreciate?’, was issued in 1 January 1956 and shortly climbed in to the US Top 10, alongside the first recordings of Elvis Presley and Carl Perkins. The melody went on to achieve #1 1 in the united kingdom and marketed two million copies. Lymon shortly left school as well as the group toured thoroughly. Because of their second one, ‘I Want YOU TO DEFINITELY Be My Gal’, the 13-year-old guy wonder was presented with superior billing towards the group. Making use of their usage of high tenor, deep bass and soprano, and teen-orientated lyrics, the Teens boasted perhaps one of the most distinct noises in 50s pop. After registering graph entries in america with ‘I Guarantee To Keep in mind’ and ‘The ABCs Of Like’, they discovered better acclaim in Britain. The soaring ‘I’m NOT REALLY A Juvenile Delinquent’ (in the movie Rock Rock and roll Rock) hit the united kingdom Best 12 and Lymon was afforded the honour of showing up on the London Palladium. Therefore solid was his charm at this time that the solitary’s b-side, ‘Baby Baby’, received distinct advertising and outshone the a-side by climbing to #4 4. During his celebrated UK tour, Lymon documented like a soloist with maker Norrie Paramor as well as the ensuing ‘Goody Goody’ reached the very best 30 on both edges from the Atlantic. By the summertime of 1957, he previously split through the Teens, and thereafter, his profession leads plummeted. He liked the excesses of stardom, smoking cigarettes cigars, drinking seriously and experiencing underage sex with ladies old enough to become his mom. Despite recording a solid recording, his novelty charm waned when his tone of voice broke. By 1961, the teen was a heroin addict and moved into Manhattan General Medical center on a medication rehabilitation program. Although he attempted to reconstruct his profession by using Dizzy Gillespie and also took dance lessons and examined being a jazz drummer, his medication habit endured. In 1964, he was convicted of having narcotics and his budget were in chaos. His private lifestyle was similarly chaotic and was punctuated by three relationships. In Feb 1968, he was uncovered dead on the toilet flooring of his grandmother’s NY apartment using a syringe by his aspect. The Teen who never was raised was dead on the tragically early age of 25. His previous group continuing to record sporadically and in the 80s, making it through associates Santiago and Product owner formed a fresh Teens and Pearl McKinnon got Lymon’s part. These were inducted in to the STONE Hall Of Popularity in 1993.
