History Hounds Series: Why Do Fools Fall in Love? Frankie Lymon’s Tombstone Blues
January 23 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join the Special Collections staff in the Judith Stillion Conference Room as we live-stream the Historical Society of Michigan’s History Hounds presentation. Hosted every other Tuesday at 12 pm. This week’s presentation is by Gary Johnson from the Rock & Roll Legends Hall of Fame who will take us on a trip to the 1950s to follow the rise and fall of teen rock star Frankie Lymon, including his hit song, “Why Do Fools Fall In Love”; the highly publicized court case involving the Mafia-connected head of Lymon’s record label; and the three women all claiming to be Lymon’s legal wife and the heir to his songwriting royalties
