The Cadillacs star Earl Carroll has died at the age of 75.
The singer passed away on Sunday (25Nov12) at a nursing home in New York following a stroke and a battle with diabetes.
Carroll co-founded the doo-wop group in the early 1950s, and the band went on to enjoy chart success with several singles, including their most famous hit Speedo.
He joined rival R&B group The Coasters in 1961, and performed with them for 20 years, before reforming with his original band in the early 1990s for a car commercial.
As well as touring with the reunited The Cadillacs, Carroll also worked as a janitor at Public School 87 in the Big Apple.
