The Golden Boys are Frankie Avalon, Bobby Rydell and Fabian. Three teen idols who hit the bigtime in the late-1950s and early-1960s, these fellas have been friends for almost as long as they've been performing, and they were icons of the rock and roll era. They have been performing together as The Golden Boys since 1985, and prove to be as popular as ever.
Frankie Avalon is best known for his 1959 number one hits "Venus" and "Why," and he charted a whopping 31 U.S. Billboard singles from 1958 to late 1962 . He went on to have a booming career as an actor in a series of "beach party" films for American International Pictures, and in later life was cast in the memorable role of Teen Angel in the 1978 hit music film Grease, where he performed the song "Beauty School Dropout."
Rock and roll singer Bobby Rydell charted him 34 top 100 hits throughout the late-1950s and early '60s, placing him in the top five artists of his era, according to Billboard. His biggest hits were the number two single "Wild One" and his cover of Domenico Modugno's "Volare."
Shooting to fame after a number of appearances on American Bandstand, Fabian had 11 Billboard Hot 100 hits and was a bona fide heartthrob, finding whirlwind success as a singer, before striking up an acting career with 20th Century Fox. He later also signed with American International Pictures, and in the 1970s, he made a return to music.
