Frankie Lymon

Frankie Lymon debuted as the star of The Teenagers in 1956 by topping Billboard’s R&B singles chart for five weeks with "Why Do Fools Fall in Love" in 1956, when he was just 13. Twelve years later, after a declining solo career, Lymon was found dead from a heroin overdose in his grandmother's bathroom.
