I just received an email from the Fabulous Boogie Kings website saying that their former lead singer Duane Yates has died. Yates died May 23, in a Alexandria, Louisiana hospital. He was famous for his blue-eyed soul sound with the Fabulous Boogie Kings. He had started singing during high school with a group named the Capris, which had one of their songs played on American Bandstand during the Rate a Record segment of the program.
He also sang in Las Vegas and Hollywood. He could sing soul music with the best of them and he also played trumpet in the horn section, which made the Fabulous Boogie Kings stand out from most bands. He was close friends with the Righteous Brothers.
