One of the most under appreciated people in the history of Roc and Roll, Dion DiMucci is celebrating his 79th birthday today. Dion started with Dion and the Belmonts in the 50’s and later became a solo star. He sang songs like “Runaround Sue”, “Ruby Baby”, “Donna the Prima Donna”, “The Wanderer” and “Abraham, Martin and John”.
Dion was on the Winter Dance Party tour “The Night The Music Died”. He was first offered a seat on the ill-fated plane but he has said he just couldn’t justify the cost as it was the same as a months rent.
The Beatles loved his work to the point that they put him on the cover of “Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band” LP.
He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1989.
He’s been there, done that, and is an incredible singer / performer.
Happy Birthday Dion!!! You got it right!
