    Hey there, MQ!
    Excuse my nitpickyness, but something caught my eye:
    Muscle Beach Party was 1964. The reason I remember is that was my first movie date with my bf...ah, the memories.

    Happy Birthday, Frankie!

    I always liked Frankie Avalon and was lucky to have met him. He lived in the same neighborhood as I did and so did Bobby Rydell and Fabian. My sisters boyfriend growing up even played in a band for them. Bobby Rydells Aunt was a friend of my Mothers and he married a girl in my sisters class in high school.
    Happy Birthday Frankie !
    I got bit by vampire and I liked it!
    Happy Halloween !

    Applecruncher sorry I missed that. I was to busy thinking about Frankie and all those old rock and roll singers and how much we all loved that music. My girlfriend was a fan club president for Dion and the Belmonts in our area. She was obsessed with him. The walls in her bedroom were covered with 8"x10" glossy photos of him.

    Frankie rarely does interviews, but I saw him a few yrs ago after Annette died. I was stunned at how good he looked.
