American rock and rhythm and blues singer Frankie Lymon passed away in a car accident. He was only 35 years old.

His death caused a resurgence in interest in the American musical heritage.

Franklin Joseph was born in Brooklyn, New York. He was the boy soprano lead singer of the band The Teenagers, a group of five early- to mid-teen boys.

The group was originally named the Memphis Rhythm and Blues Explosion.

After a brief career in a New York club, Billy Lynn Lymon went solo.

His career waned, and he died at age 25 of an accidental heroin overdose.

The story of his life was featured in the 1998 film Why Do Fools Fall in Love. It is unclear what caused the band’s dissolution.

Frankie Lymon’s cause of death was undetermined.

It is unclear whether he died of an overdose from drugs or of alcohol. It is unclear how much he drank before his death, but his family said he died of cardiac arrest.

His family said he was a heavy drinker. A cocaine overdose, possibly from a heroin overdose, was the cause of death.

In the 1960s, Frankie Lymon struggled with drugs and he was forced into a drug rehab program at Manhattan General Hospital.

After his release from rehab, he tried to make a comeback, but failed. In 1964, he was convicted of a narcotics crime.

After being released from jail, he and the Four Seasons were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and a movie about his life was released.

Sadly, Lymon passed away at the age of 25 of an overdose from drugs.
