Dion DiMucci

Dion DiMucci was born in the Bronx, New York, July 18, 1939, and is credited with melding Doo-Wop and R&B musical styles, though many remember him only for his teen idol packaging. The result was a highly successful, albeit troubled, career.

In 1957, DiMucci rounded up the best singers he could find and began rehearsing on the subways heading into Manhattan. They called themselves Dion & the Belmonts, after Belmont Street in the Bronx. By 1958, the group had its first hit with the Doo-Wop sounding "I Wonder Why," followed by "No One Knows." The next year, Dion & the Belmonts scored its biggest hit with "A Teenager in Love."

Dion went solo in 1960 (the Belmonts did some more recordings on their own), moving from doo-wop to more R&B/pop-oriented tunes with great success. He handled himself with a suave, cocky ease on a long string of hits like "The Wanderer," "Runaround Sue," "Lovers Who Wander," "Ruby Baby," and "Donna the Prima Donna". These tunes cast him as either the jilted, misunderstood youngster or the macho lover, capable of handling anything that came his way.

In 1968 he re-emerged as a gentle folk-rocker, and scored a #4 hit single, "Abraham, Martin and John." The song was sort of an anthem for the times, asking why some of America's greatest leaders were killed in their prime. Dion would focus upon mature, contemporary material on his late '60s and early '70s albums.

He's been recording and performing fairly often over the last two decades (sometimes singing Christian music) to indifferent commercial results. But his critical rep has risen steadily since the early '60s, with many noted contemporary musicians showering him with praise and citing his influence.

Today, DiMucci continues to perform on the oldies circuit from time to time.
