Biography

Active: 1950s-2000s
Country Of origin: United States of America
Member of: The Crests , Brooklyn Bridge

After making a name for himself as lead singer of the Crests, vocalist Johnny Maestro formed Brooklyn Bridge in 1968 and scored a gold record the next year on Buddah with a cover of the Fifth Dimension's heartbroken "Worst That Could Happen." Brooklyn Bridge were an amalgam of Maestro, the Del Satins (the vocal group that backed Dion on many of his early-'60s solo hits), and a brassy outfit called the Rhythm Method. Brooklyn Bridge enjoyed several more hits in 1969 and 1970, and Maestro often performed on the oldies circuit during the decades to follow. He died of cancer at his home in Cape Coral, FL, in March 2010 at the age of 70. ~ Bill Dahl~ Rovi
