    Fred Milano of Dion + the Belmonts Dead at 72 - He had lung cancer

    A moment of silence for Fred Milano of the doo-wop group Dion & The Belmonts. Milano has died at age 72. According to The Associated Press, Milano was diagnosed with lung cancer just three weeks ago. He died Sunday (Jan. 1) at a Long Island hospital in New York.

    Milano shot to fame by using his tenor voice to sing hits such as "A Teenager in Love" and "Where or When."

    He embarked on a second career as a legal coordinator at Rikers Island jail in New York City later in life.

    R.I.P.

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to Milano and his family.

    What is your favorite doo-wop song or act?
