In the late fifties, the first nationally successful "Rock n'Roll" singer to come out of Detroit. He was born in Windsor, Ontario and moved with his parents to Hazel Park, Michigan when he was two. He was taught to play the guitar by his father. He later took up singing and songwriting. In 1957, at the age of 19, he signed with ABC-Paramount, and later recorded for Carlton and Epic. "My True Love"/ "Leroy" were his double-sided breakthrough hits in 1958. These were followed by "I Never Felt Like This"/ "Bela", "The Way I Walk", "Goodbye Baby", "Burning Bridges", "There She Goes", "It Only Happened Yesterday" and the very somber "What In The World's Come Over You" which has become a rock standard. He continues to tour today.
