Rich Cronin was the lead singer of LFO until yesterday. LFO is best known for the song “Summer Girls” back in the 90’s. Just to remind you, the chorus went something like this: “New Kids On The block,had a bunch of hits, Chinese food makes me sick, And I think it’s fly when girls stop by for the summer, for the summer, I like girls that wear Abercrombie and Fitch, I’d take her if I had one wish, But she’s been gone since that summer… Since that summer.”
Cronin passed away after battling cancer for a long time. Many boy band members from that same period tweeted their response about Cronin’s passing. Below are some of the responses that were sent out:
