Another oldies artist has died.
Randy Safuto, the lead singer of the doo-wop group Randy & the Rainbows, passed away on Tuesday, five months after suffering a heart attack while preparing for a routine medical procedure. The group’s only hit was “Denise” that went to #10 in 1963.
Safuto was 71.
Blondie had a big European hit with a cover of “Denise” in 1978 that was re-titled “Denis.” Her cover version was released as a single in the U.S., but didn’t make the American charts.
