While seemingly bypassed in affection by The Ronettes, their sisters in NYC harmony, the beautifully dynamic The Crystals are often hailed as the finest girl group of the sixties. Experiencing many of the behind the scenes manipulations of that era in music, Barbara Alston, Mary Thomas, “Dee Dee” Kenniebrew, Myrna Giraud, Patsy Wright (and eventually) “LaLa” Brooks, nevertheless left a lasting impression on the world with hits like He’s A Rebel, Da Doo Ron Ron and Then He Kissed Me.
Their first full length album Twist Uptown even featured this homage to everyone’s favorite mad scientist.
Nicely for fans of powerful female vocalists, The Crystals, led by Kenniebrew, are still performing to this day.
Until the next time, SWEET love and pink GRUE, Big Gay Horror Fan!
