Rich Cronin, the lead singer of the hot boy band LFO, died Wednesday after suffering a long battle with leukemia. According to the brother and TMZ, Rich also died from a stroke. Cronin was only 35 years old at the time of his death.
LFO became a huge hit with the popular song “Summer Girls” back in the 90’s. This song became so huge it had all the girls going out to Abercrombie & Fitch so they can look like a girl from Abercrombie & Fitch as Rich Cronin had mentioned in the song.
The popularity didn’t stop there though. LFO came out with another smash hit song titled “Girl on TV.” This song was actually about one of the girls Rich dated. Her name was Jennifer Love Hewitt. Some people might only remember these two songs. However, LFO had more than 50 songs if I recall. Here are my top LFO songs in no particular order.
Girl on TV
Cross My Heart
I Will Show You Mine
Can’t Have You
Baby Be Mine
All I Need To Know
Sex U Up The Way You Like It
Love Is The Message
I Don’t Wanna Kiss You Good Night
So see folks, the 90’s band LFO did have other songs they just weren’t as hot as Summer Girls and Girl on TV.
We all know that Rich Cronin died from leukemia, but which one? Leukemia is divided into 4 types according to About.com. You have Acute Leukemias, Myelogenous Leukemia, Chronic Leukemias, and Lymphocytic Leukemia.
