The Ink Spots

The Ink Spots played a large role in pioneering the black vocal group-harmony genre, helping to pave the way for the doo wop explosion of the '50s. The quavering high tenor of Bill Kenny presaged hundreds of street-corner leads to come, and the sweet harmonies of Charlie Fuqua, Deek Watson, and bass Hoppy Jones (who died in 1944) backed him flawlessly.

Kenny's impeccable diction and Jones's deep drawl were both prominent on the Ink Spots' first smash on Decca in 1939, the sentimental "If I Didn't Care." From then through 1951, the group was seldom absent from the pop charts, topping the lists with "We Three (My Echo, My Shadow, and Me)" (1940), "I'm Making Believe" and "Into Each Life Some Rain Must Fall" (both in 1944), and "The Gypsy" and "To Each His Own" (both in 1946).

Watson eventually split to form his own group, the Brown Dots, and appeared in numerous low-budget film musicals, while Kenny attempted a solo career, notching a solo hit in 1951 with the uplifting "It Is No Secret." Countless groups masquerading as the Ink Spots have thrived across the nation since the '50s. ~ Bill Dahl

Let's see if the man I hate to know end came from Italy in 1939 and was born in 1928 that would make him under 10 in the 30's under 20 in the 40's so it would have been in his 30's the 50's that is when he came out to the West Coast. When the 60's rolled around he was in his 40's. The 70's his 50's the 80's his 60's and from 1990 to 2010 his 70's and 80's. Moving right thru to today we have 2010 - 2020, he is now in his 80's.

The Ink Spots started the slow Doo Wop era.

The music is similar because that way it doesnt take away from the lyrics, but instead supports them haha. But maybe im crazy, I am responding to a year old comment.
