Biography
Salah satu semburan idola remaja untuk keluar dari Philadelphia tahun 1950-an dan 1960-an, Frankie Avalon--tidak seperti banyak yang lain--sebenarnya memiliki latar belakang musik, telah diajarkan untuk bermain terompet pada usia yang sangat muda oleh ayahnya. Sebagai Avalon muda Dilakukan di klub lokal dan bioskop. Dia memenangkan kontes TV lokal bakat bermain terompet solo. Pada tahun 1951, pada usia 12, ia berada di sebuah band bernama Rocco dan orang kudus, yang termasuk lain segera-to-be terkenal penyanyi remaja, Bobby Rydell. Pada tahun 1952 ia melakukan di sebuah pesta pribadi diadakan untuk penyanyi Al Martino. Seorang pencari bakat yang juga ada di pesta sangat terkesan dengan Avalon untuk mempertunjukkan acara TV Jackie Gleason, yang mengarah ke acara televisi yang lebih banyak. Pada tahun 1954 dia membuat dua single untuk" X " Records, anak perusahaan RCA Victor. Kedua Trumpet instrumental menampilkan Avalon bermain terompet: "Trumpet Sorrento" dan "Tarantella."Dia akhirnya mendapat kontrak rekaman dengan catatan Kanselir Philadelphia, dan dia merekam "Cupid" dan "Teacher's Pet". Catatan ini punya dia peran film pertamanya, bagian kecil di Jambore! (1957) dirancang untuk mempromosikan "hewan peliharaan guru."Catatan berikutnya adalah "DeDe Dinah", sebuah lagu yang ditulis oleh manajernya (dan salah satunya lagi ia sedikit menghormati bahwa ia mencubit hidungnya saat rekaman itu, menyebabkan suara hidung yang sangat keras). Setelah penampilan Dick Clark's teen dance show American Bandstand (1952), penjualan rekaman meningkat dan akhirnya terjual lebih dari satu juta eksemplar. Pada tahun 1959, setelah dua hits besar ("roti jahe "dan" Aku akan menunggu untuk Anda") dia merekam lagu dia mungkin dikenal untuk, jutaan-menjual " Venus."Namun, pada tahun 1960 karirnya mulai memudar dan penjualan catatannya menurun drastis . Dia segera mulai mengambil bagian-bagian kecil dalam film, yang paling terkenal di John Wayne Alamo (1960). Ia mulai mendapatkan agak lebih besar bagian dan memiliki peran pertamanya di drum Of Afrika (1963). Karir filmnya sangat sukses, namun, saat dia dipasangkan dengan mantan Mousketeer Annette Funicello di pesta pantai (1963) dan rangkaian sekuelnya. Film-film ini, dengan kombinasi berselancar, komedi rendah, menari dan "kelinci pantai" di bikini, memicu saraf dengan audiens remaja, yang diproduksi untuk kacang dan membuat keberuntungan. Avalon masih merekam lagu untuk Kanselir dan label lainnya, tapi sekarang dia jauh lebih dikenal di antara penonton muda untuk filmnya daripada untuk catatannya. Pada tahun 1985 ia mulai tur dengan sesama idol Remaja Rydell dan Fabian dalam sebuah acara oldies bernama "The Golden Boys of Bandstand," yang merupakan kesuksesan rousing. Pada tahun 1987, dia dan Funicello berkumpul kembali di pantai (1987), sebuah penghormatan, dan parodi film "beach" sebelumnya. Avalon masih membuat penampilan dan wisata pribadi, banyak dengan dan untuk teman lamanya dan mentor Dick Clark.
