Original Un-Original's

Whenever I would watch one of those PBS Pledge Music shows on R&B, I knew that most of the members of certain Doo-Wop and Soul groups weren't original members. But it was always tough to figure out if the person's in the group were even there during an act's hit run. The death of the last orginal member of the Drifters, Bill Pinkney, should make all us music fans wonder. So, the next time you're at a Fair or watching PBS, enjoy the music, but if all the members in the group look under 50, be suspicious.
