Calendar* Correction: Frankie Lymon

You will see several websites report that Frankie Lymon died on February 28, 1968.  As the ever-intent truth hounds that we are, we want to make sure you know that this is incorrect.  We hope that those sites change their story, but if they don't, we guess that's just more people that view our website instead!

The newspaper article in The New York Times that reported the death was dated February 28, but it plainly says that Lymon "died yesterday" (February 27).  Newspaper articles are printed the day following news, and the February 27 date is confirmed by the gravestone pictured above.
