LFO's Rich Cronin, 35, Loses Leukemia Battle

BOSTON (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Rich Cronin, the lead singer and chief songwriter for the pop band LFO, passed away on Wednesday.

The 35-year-old performer had a long-term battle with leukemia and suffered a stroke, according to the musician’s brother.

LFO was behind such hits as “Summer Girls” and “Girl on TV.”

The band split in 2002. In 2005, Cronin was diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia.

In a 2006 interview with Entertainment Weekly, Cronin reflected on his career, “I am truly thankful for the success I had. And if it happens again, that’d be really nice. I’m just that same guy writing pop songs to make people happy. And I still only like girls in Abercrombie & Fitch.” –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
