“The star, best known for the group’s hit song “Oh, What a Night,” passed away at his home in Harvey, Ill., on Wednesday after suffering kidney failure. The news was confirmed by his son, Marvin Junior Jr.
Junior was among a group of high school friends who formed the doo-wop band in 1952 under the name the El-Rays, and as The Dells, they went on to achieve success with their hit track “Oh, What a Night” in 1956. The group disbanded briefly after they were involved in a car crash in 1958, but they reformed in 1960.
They enjoyed hits with tracks including “Wear It on Our Face,” “Always Together” and “Stay in My Corner,” and they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2004.”
