I'm sure it's just a typo, but Freddy's first group was The Del Satins. He passed away on October 21 at the age of 71. Freddy's final two shows with The Brooklyn Bridge were on October 14 & 15.

Right now, I'm listening to a Johnny Maestro & Brooklyn Bridge CD. Man, I really miss these guys. Hopefully, the remaining Brooklyn Bridge continues on playing the music that was loved by Johnny and Freddy. Please keep those songs out there and keep the memory because, that's the love that bonds, and memories live on. They were were truly loved by all.
