    Complications from COVID-19 cause of death.

    Had hit songs If I Had A Hammer and Lemon Tree in 1963 and 1965.

    He was in the movie The Dirty Dozen and appeared in tv shows ADAM 12 and The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries.

    Very sad. A ‘60’s icon.

    I always liked him, was on Ed Sullivan and always seemed as though he really enjoyed preforming.

    I was debating whether to post this in misc Vegas chat too since Lopez was discovered and mentored by Frank Sinatra. He passed in CA at age 83. He was a bit before my time but since I do like oldies I am saddened. You may be familiar with his such as Lemon Tree and If I had a Hammer but Made in Paris rocks too. The drummer in that tune is something else.

    Stay safe out there.

    I know he was a very talented musician and singer but I confess I loved him in Dirty Dozen.

    Rest in Peace.
