Remembering Fred Milano
Fred Milano, founder of the Belmonts passed away on New Years Day. The Belmonts may not sound familiar, until you add Dion to the mix. Yes, Dion and the Belmonts, one of the early superstars of early (really early) rock and roll. Most of the bands major hits were in late 50’s and early 60’s. “A Teenager In Love”, “Runaround Sue”, “When You Wish Upon A Star”, we all know the words and can belt them out in the shower. We can all appreciate and remember Fred through, the immortality of these songs and others. In memorial, I have attached the classic “Runaround Sue”.
