Some people will read this post and wonder, who the hell is Frankie Lymon?
I can type it all here but I figured if you click here, you’ll get all the info you need.
He was also the focal character in the movie, Why Do Fools Fall In Love.
The point of this entry is because yesterday I watched the movie and I realized how dope Frankie Lymon was. Frank had a unique voice and an amazing ability to rock a crowd.
But even with all that, Frankie managed to drink away his career. Frankie is another talent who fell to drug and alcohol abuse.
I just want people to understand that it takes more than talent to be successful in the music industry. Frankie was on top of the world at one point but the minute the fame dwindled, Frankie lost it.
I’m admiring Mr. Lymon’s story but also using it as a guide to my own career, hoping not to make the same mistakes.
Rest in peace Franklin Joseph “Frankie” Lymon.
