The Master

Happy birthday, Johnny Maestro.  He wasn't originally named Maestro, of course.  It was Johnny Mastrangelo, which wouldn't fly in 1950s show biz.

He was lead singer of the Crests, an interracial doo wop group.

They had one huge hit:

By the late 60s he was lead singer for another band, the Brooklyn Bridge, and in 1969, they had one big hit.

No more big hits for Johnny, but he had a nice career for decades as an oldies act.

The Worst Thing is hard to pick- the hair, the shirt or the jacket?

I have a friend who said this song described a relationship he had. That's the worst.

No, wait a second, it's the shirt. Definitely the shirt.
