Danny Rapp: Age 41 | Cause Of Death: SUICIDE

Danny & The Juniors

(b. 10 May 1941, d. 4 April 1983).

Formed in 1955 as the Juvenairs, their song Do The Bop came to the attention of Dick Clark who suggested it be changed to At The Hop.  In 1976 a re-issue of their classic At The Hop returned them to the UK Top 40. After a few quiet years, leader Rapp was found dead in Arizona in 1983—he had apparently committed suicide by gunshot.
