Vocalist
    (December 11, 1941-October 4, 1991)
    Born in Lufkin, Texas
    Birth name was John Frank Wilson
    Lead singer of J. Frank Wilson and the Cavaliers
    Recorded the single 'Last Kiss' (1964)
    He was a one-hit wonder.
    His hit was part of the early-60s wave of morbid 'teen tragedy' songs. (See also: 'Teen Angel,' 'Tell Laura I Love Her,' 'The Leader of the Pack,' etc.)
    One of the Cavaliers said, ''Last Kiss' was the very worst thing that could happen to Frank... It all went to his head and he thought he was a superstar.... Frank went ape-shit--sex, booze, up all night. He couldn't handle it.'
    He was married eight times.
    He was busted multiple times for DUI.
    He was injured in a car crash when his manager fell asleep at the wheel (October, 1964).
    A few weeks later, he appeared on American Bandstand, performing on crutches.
    'Last Kiss' peaked at #2 on the Billboard singles chart and earned a gold record.
    Pearl Jam later covered 'Last Kiss' which became their most successful single.
