The Knockouts

Darling Loraine
#7 in 1960


This group, I believe, came from Lyndhurst New Jersey. After Alan Freed accidentally (on purpose?) played it over New York's WOR radio it climbed to #7 on the national charts. This was their only chart hit Members were Bobby Collada. He played keyboards, wrote music and lyric’s. One he wrote was titled, Ecuador. (He passed away several years ago), Bobby D’Andrea was the lead singer. Eddie Parenti did backup singing and I think played the electric guitar. Pierre Lasalle played the drums. he was a chubby guy who use to roll his eyes while playing.
