Johnny Maestro

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

That was our age of innocence. In 1968 I -who was career Army'-found myself headed to the most unpopular war of our country. This song & others like it bring back great memories of a carefree time.

Peace to you my brother.

wow I been listening to Johnny since I was a kid, I met my first girlfriend on 16 candles in 1959, but this song I'll be true where in the hell was that song, I never heard that before, no one can ever take his place, did you hear the harmony with the crest in the back ground wow fantastic. And 16 candles 51 years gone by, and I still play that song, and every time I play it I say the girl name I met on that song. Rita M. Shimer Jr. HS 142.

Johnnie Maestro was also in another fantastic group in the late 1960's called Brooklyn Bridge. His exceptional harmony was very evident in the group's short 2-album career. "The Worst that could Happen" was one of my favorites.

great voice, great sound. takes me back to my days when music was actually musical.

Kerry, u got it. There was a tune in my day, "Besame Mucho", and it was Brazilian.
Report as inappropriate
To answer my own question, If I understand it right, Besame means kiss me, looked this up on the internet, I think if Brazilian. Correct me if I'm wrong.
Report as inappropriate
Johnny Maestro's voice is the essential doo wop sound. The melodies, his unique sound, every song of his and the Crests are remarkable. When they start playing,if possible, I stop what I'm doing and enjoy. I have no idea what "Besame Baby" means, but the melody is great. If you know, leave note, thanks.
