Johnny Maestro Dies: It’s the Worst that Could Happen

Johnny Maestro, lead singer of the Brooklyn Bridge, and famed vocalist from the 50s and 60s has passed away. He was 70 and had been fighting cancer.

The Brooklyn Bridge is in every Hall of Fame except the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, of course. Johnny Maestro was the lead singer on one of the greatest rock n roll songs of all time, “16 Candles” when he was with the Crests.  He also sang back up for Dion’s in the 1960s. Johnny Maestro (Mastrangelo) and the Brooklyn Bridge’s recording of “The Worst That Could Happen,” written by Jimmy Webb, is one of the best things that ever happened in rock history.

    RIP – Johnny Maestro, 70, was a Lower East Side teen when he crooned “16 Candles,” (originally “21 Candles” changed @ the last minute to appeal to minors.) He later had a #3 hit w/ “Worst That Could Happen” — that being cancer. http://urdead2me.wordpress.com/2010/03/24/rip-johnny-maestro/
