Another thing I learned at those oldies shows is that Frankie Lymon had a brother, Lewis Lymon, who performed with his own group called Lewis Lymon and The Teenchords during the same time period that Frankie enjoyed his biggest success. Here are a few from Lewis Lymon:

I'm So Happy

Thank you ceejayqb for posting your songs. Just watched the "Why Do Fools Fall In Love" movie, loosely but scarily based on Frankie Lymon's life. I enjoyed it, learned from it, and now can appreciate this song a bit more...



R.I.P.

Have there been any recent incarnations of "Plattters" or "Drifters"?I know there have been scores of them over the years,though some not including ANY real original members.
