Joey Mars

Frankie Lymon

Died: February 27, 1968

Straight outta Harlem, he penned doo-wop's greatest hit, Why Do Fools Fall in Love? at the age of 13. By the age of 25, he had lived a thousand lifetimes and was found dead from a heroin overdose in his grandmother's Washington Heights bathroom. The legal battle over the song's royalties is legendary.
