|Freddy "Boom Boom" Cannon was born Frederick Anthony
Picariello, December 4, 1940, in the North Boston suburb of Lynn,
Massachusetts. He learned to play the guitar as a boy and in high school
formed a band. He eventually signed with Swan Records in Philadelphia,
Pennsylvania, a recording studio in which music promoter Dick Clark had
an interest, and who brought him national exposure through numerous
appearances on the television program, American Bandstand. In 1959 and
the early 1960s, singing under the stage name, Freddy Cannon, and dubbed
"Boom Boom" because of his thundering musical renditions, he
had three Top 10 hits.
