Tommy James, yes THE Tommy James of Tommy James and the Shondells is celebrating his 71st birthday today. Tommy has had major hits with songs like “Hanky Panky”, “Mony Mony”, “Crimson and Clover”, “I think Were Alone Now” and many others.
Here’s the interesting part. Tommy is still performing concerts today and he was pronounced dead in 1970. He collapsed after a show in Alabama in 1970 from exhaustion combined with drugs and taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead. The diagnosis was a little premature.
So, aaahhh, did you ever do the ‘Hanky Panky?’
Happy Birthday Tommy!!!!
