July 21, 1956 - Frankie Lymon And The Teenagers started a three week run at the top of the UK chart with "Why Do Fools Fall In Love", a record that had reached #6 in America last February

"I do remember this moment. It was the “Biggest Rock’n’Roll Show of ‘56” which was our first tour (60 days). The show consisted of Bill Haley and his Comets, The Platters, Clyde McPhatter, La Vern Baker, Joe Turner, The Teen Queens, Bo Diddley, The Flamingos, The Drifters, The Colts, and Red Prysock (behind Frankie) and his Rock’n’Roll Orchestra. (From Apr to Jun 1956). What an experience." Jimmy Merchant
