R.I.P. to what was the last original surviving member of the doo-wop group The Chords, Floyd "Buddy" Mcrae . . . We’re just hearing he died last Tuesday in his 80’s. The Chords recorded a song that’s always in the conversation about what the first rock & roll record was... “Sh-Boom".
Here’s two of the members, including Floyd (in the office) talking about how the song came together.
And here’s the original song for your pleasure. Sooooooo good!!!
