The Fireflies

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Fireflies were an American doo-wop group from Long Island, New York, from the late 1950s to early 1960s. They were one of the first groups in which all band members both sang and played instruments. In addition, The Fireflies were the first all white vocal harmonizing group to appear at The Apollo Theater.[1]

The group was formed by producer Gerry Granahan in Long Island in 1957, and underwent several line-up changes. Their debut single for Roulette Records was “The Crawl”, followed by the Ribbon Records 1959 release “You Were Mine”, which was their biggest hit. It was written by 19-year-old Paul Giacalone about a girl he met while he was touring.[1] It spent 16 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100, and peaked at #21 on October 26, 1959,[2][3] while reaching #15 on Canada‘s CHUM Hit Parade.[4] The members involved in the song “You Were Mine” in 1959 were Paul Giacalone (bass singer and drummer; September 28, 1939 – June 27, 2013),[1] Ritchie Adams (lead singer; real name Richard Adam Ziegler), Lee Reynolds, John Viscelli (sax and vocals), Carl Girsoli (guitar and vocals). Following the single’s success, The Paulette Sisters released an answer record called “I Was Yours”.[5]

Later singles included “I Can’t Say Goodbye”, “Marianne”, and “My Girl” (all 1960); “I Can’t Say Goodbye” was the only charter, spending three weeks on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at #90.[6][7] In 1962 the group reappeared on Taurus Records with “You Were Mine for Awhile” and “Blacksmith Blues” on Hamilton Records; three other singles followed on Taurus, but the group never returned to the charts. The group lasted until 1967 before disbanding for good.

Adams went on to release some solo singles and had a successful songwriting career, including the hits “Tossin’ and Turnin’” and “After the Lovin’“.[8]

Original member and saxophonist/singer, John Viscelli, still resides in South Florida.[citation needed]

Giacalone was diagnosed with cancer in late 2012. He died from the disease in Long Island, New York on June 27, 2013, aged 73.[1][9]

Catherine “Cath” Tyldesley (born 17 September 1983) is an English actress, model and singer. She is best known for playing Iris Moss in the BBC drama Lilies in 2007 and as Eva Price on the ITV soap opera Coronation Street since 2011.

Early life and career[edit]

Tyldesley is from Walkden, Greater Manchester.[1][2] She attended St. George’s RC High School and Pendleton College before training at the Birmingham School of Acting (formerly the Birmingham School of Speech & Drama), graduating in 2005.[3][2]

Tyldesley’s television credits include Coronation Street, Holby City, Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps, Sorted, Florence Nightingale and Red Riding. She played the lead role of Iris Moss in the Liverpool-set BBC drama Lilies.[4] She also appeared in the comedy television pilot Guantanamo Phil, part of the Channel 4 Comedy Showcase 2009.[5][6]

In 2010, Tyldesley played the role of Abi Peterson in Emmerdale for two months. Tyldesley sings in the range of mezzo-soprano.[3] She has also modelled for the House of Fraser.[7]

Coronation Street[edit]

Main article: Coronation Street

Tyldesley played a midwife in an episode broadcast on 13 January 2006. In May 2011, Tyldesley was cast in the regular role of Eva.[8] The actress began filming her first scenes that month.[8] During an interview with Digital Spy, Tyldesley revealed that there had been a lot of competition for the role of Eva and that she felt “incredibly lucky” to have secured the part.[9] Tyldesley said she felt “nervous” when she first arrived on set.[10] Speaking to What’s on TV, she said that she had a “mini freak out” when filming her first scenes in The Rovers. Tyldesley added that Coronation Street is “absolutely legendary” and is thrilled to be a part of the cast.[10] After impressing producers, it was later confirmed that Tyldesley was to be kept on as a permanent member of the cast.[11] After signing a new six-month contract, an executive said that Eva will be involved in some “cracking” storylines towards the end of the year.[11] In May 2012, Tyldesley expressed her desire for a long-term stint on the show.[12] Speaking to the Daily Mirror, Tyldesley said “I’ve always wanted to be in Corrie. So when I got the phone call to tell me that I’d got the part, I was thrilled to bits.”[12] She also added that Eva has got “so much scope”.[12]

Before she appeared on screen, Eva was described as being “feisty”.[8] Tyldesley revealed more about her character, saying “Eva is a little bit of a princess! She’s been spoiled rotten, so she’s somewhat high maintenance and a little bit of a drama queen. She’s definitely used to getting her own way.”[9] The actress said her character adores her mother and they share a great relationship.[9] When Eva enters the show, her circumstances force her to be more angry than she normally is. Tyldesley said that Eva does have a softer side, which she believed viewers would see in the future.[9] When asked why Eva and Karl do not get along, Tyldesley said “I think it’s because they’re both quite similar. When Eva first joins the street, she’s had a little bit of turmoil with past relationships and things like that, so I think she feels like she wants to be quite selfish at the moment, which annoys Karl. But she’s always been full of self-importance because she’s always been spoiled – she’s not known any different.”[9] Tyldesley revealed that Eva is not a lesbian character, despite a newspaper report, and that she definitely loves the boys.[9] When asked about Eva’s type, Tyldesley said that they would have to be “on her wavelength” as Eva gets bored and frustrated with people who are not on her level.[9] In May 2012, Tyldesley commented that Eva’s glamorous lifestyle can be “straining” and she enjoys time off work so she can wear normal and more comfortable clothes.[13]

She wears the stuff I would never have the nerve to wear. It’s weird, sometimes you just feel really glam and it’s a nice feeling. Then other times you feel she’s gone slightly overboard, ridiculous big hair and fake eyelashes – like TOWIE on Red Bull!
— Tyldesley explains Eva’s sense of dress (2012)[13]

Personal life[edit]

Tyldesley admitted in June 2012 that men do not approach her outside of Coronation Street and blamed her character in the series for putting men off.[14] Speaking to the Daily Mirror, Tyldesley said: “I’m so disillusioned with men at the moment. Possibly men are intimidated by my screen character, I don’t know. I’ve been single for a while. I’ve been on a couple of dates, but it’s been quite a long time now.”[14] She began dating Tom Pitfield.[15] On 24 August 2014 Catherine announced she and Tom were expecting their first child. In September 2014 the couple got engaged.[16] She gave birth to son Alfie on 18 March 2015. In 21 May 2016, Tyldesley married Pitfield in a ceremony at which her Coronation Street co-stars attended.

She currently divides her time between Walkden and London.[2]

Cheryl Gates McFadden (born March 2, 1949),[1] usually credited as Gates McFadden, is an American actress and choreographer. She is best known for playing Dr. Beverly Crusher in the Star Trek: The Next Generation television series and in the four subsequent films.

Early life[edit]

McFadden was born in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. She attended Brandeis University graduating with a Bachelor of Arts cum laude in theatre arts. After graduating from Brandeis, she moved to Paris and studied theatre with actor Jacques Lecoq. She is of Lithuanian descent on her mother’s side.[2]


Early work[edit]

McFadden often worked in Jim Henson productions, including the films The Dark Crystal (as choreographer), Labyrinth (as director of choreography and puppet movement), The Muppets Take Manhattan (choreographer and a brief on-screen appearance), and uncredited work on Dreamchild (again supervising choreography and puppet movement). As a way of distinguishing her acting work from her choreography, she is usually credited as “Gates McFadden” as an actress and “Cheryl McFadden” as a choreographer. However, she was credited as “Cheryl McFadden” in the Troma movie When Nature Calls (1985) and in the season-three episode of The Cosby Show, “Cliff’s 50th Birthday”. She appeared in The Hunt for Red October as Jack Ryan‘s wife Caroline, though most of her scenes were cut in post-production.

Star Trek: The Next Generation[edit]

Season One[edit]

In 1987, McFadden was cast as Dr. Beverly Crusher on Star Trek: The Next Generation. The Crusher character was slated to be Captain Jean-Luc Picard‘s love interest; another important aspect of the character was being a widow balancing motherhood and a career.

Maurice Hurley, head writer and showrunner, did not like working with McFadden, and McFadden was fired at the end of the season 1.[3] Diana Muldaur joined the production as the Enterprise’s new chief medical officer, Dr. Katherine Pulaski, for season 2.

Seasons three through seven[edit]

Series creator Gene Roddenberry admitted that the Dr. Pulaski character did not develop a chemistry with the other characters, so McFadden was approached to return as Dr. Crusher for the third season.[4] At first, she was hesitant, but after a phone call from co-star Patrick Stewart, McFadden was persuaded to return to the role, which she subsequently continued to play through the remainder of the series.[5]

Highlights for her character included “The High Ground“, where she is kidnapped by terrorists; “Remember Me“, in which she becomes trapped in an alternate reality where her loved ones start to disappear; “The Host“, which features a romance between the doctor and a man with a big secret; “Suspicions“, in which she risks her career to solve the murder of a scientist; “Descent” where Crusher takes command of the Enterprise when the rest of the senior staff is participating in a search for Data; “Sub Rosa“, where she becomes the next victim of her grandmother’s seductive “ghost”; and “Attached“, where Picard and Crusher become telepathically linked as prisoners and learn their true feelings for one another.

McFadden reprised her role for all four TNG movies and also provided her voice for PC games Star Trek: A Final Unity and Star Trek Generations. Also, McFadden directed the episode “Genesis” (her only directing credit to date) in which an infection causes the crew to de-evolve into primitive forms of life, and choreographed the dance routine in “Data’s Day“.

After The Next Generation[edit]

McFadden co-starred in the 1990 comedy Taking Care of Business starring James Belushi, and fellow Next Generation alumnus, John de Lancie (Q). In 1992, she appeared alongside fellow cast members Patrick Stewart, Jonathan Frakes, Brent Spiner, and Colm Meaney in a production of Every Good Boy Deserves Favour, which was performed in four cities. She also starred in the 1995 television series Marker with Richard Grieco and appeared in the made-for-television movie Crowned and Dangerous with Yasmine Bleeth in 1997. Additional television work was the role of Allison Rourke, Paul Buchman’s boss, in four episodes of the sitcom Mad About You. In the spring of 2006, McFadden appeared in a series of television commercials for Microsoft.

She has taught at several universities (American Academy of Dramatic Arts, Brandeis, Harvard, Purdue, Temple, the Stella Academy in Hamburg, and the University of Pittsburgh).[6] As of August 2010, she was listed as an adjunct faculty member in the School of Theater at the University of Southern California.[7] She has been Artistic Director of Ensemble Studio Theatre of Los Angeles since January 2009,[8] stepping down from that position in October 2014.[9] During her tenure, she spearheaded the building of the Atwater Village Theatre Collective, a new two-theater space in Los Angeles.[10][11]

McFadden has lent her voice as narrator in several audio books. In 2010, she was the narrator of “Confessor” (METAtropolis: CASCADIA).[12][13]

Personal life[edit]

McFadden has one son, James, born in 1991.[14] Her pregnancy was not written into the fourth season of TNG; instead, her character wore a laboratory coat over her uniform. Next Generation co-star Brent Spiner is her son’s godfather.[15]

Lucy Benjamin (born Lucy Jane Baker; 25 June 1970) is an English actress.


Born in Reading, Berkshire, England, she took the stage name of Benjamin after her brother. Benjamin trained at the Redroofs Theatre School in Maidenhead. Her first acting role was as a child actress in Doctor Who in 1983, playing a younger version of the character Nyssa in “Mawdryn Undead“. She remained uncredited both on-screen and in Radio Times for this part, despite having dialogue — albeit one word: “Doctor!”

In 1989, she starred in the hit children’s television programme Press Gang, where she played Julie Craig. She left after the first series for another role, but returned for the fourth and final series until 1993, when her role was expanded somewhat.

In 1989 and 1990, Benjamin appeared in two series of LWT sitcom Close to Home, playing Paul Nicholas‘ teenaged daughter Kate Shepherd. Also in 1990, Benjamin appeared in the BSB Galaxy Channel soap opera Jupiter Moon. In 1995, she appeared in the Adrian Edmondson and Rik Mayall comedy Bottom. However, she is best known for her role as Lisa Fowler in the BBC soap opera EastEnders which she played from 1998 to 2003, and was involved in several groundbreaking stories during her time there.

During her time on EastEnders, Benjamin was involved in one of the soap’s most renowned and highly anticipated storylines, known as “Who Shot Phil?” (2001). The storyline centred on the shooting of her on-screen lover Phil Mitchell, and who, out of the many potential candidates, actually performed the dastardly deed. Several suspects emerged and the audience was kept in the dark for many weeks as to the identity of the shooter. Benjamin’s character was eventually unveiled as the shooter.

She was asked back for a short period in 2003, however, to help with the forthcoming exit of Steve McFadden, who was taking a hiatus from the programme. Then again on 5 August 2010, Benjamin returned to Eastenders for one episode in a storyline that was building up to the exit of Barbara Windsor.

Since leaving EastEnders, Benjamin has appeared in the BBC television programme The Afternoon Play, and the BBC hospital drama Casualty. She has also appeared in pantomimes across London, as well as touring for 6 months in the play Framed in which she starred with Tom Craig from Coronation Street.

In April 2006, the Daily Mirror reported that Benjamin was in talks with EastEnders about reprising the role of Lisa Fowler. Benjamin, however, has confirmed in a recent interview that all rumours of her returning to EastEnders were inaccurate and that the programme was not in contact with her.

In June 2006, Benjamin appeared on The X Factor: Battle of the Stars, where she was the outright winner. She was mentored by the judge, Louis Walsh. She also appeared as Heather in Stephen Fry’s drama Kingdom. In October 2006, Benjamin appeared in an episode of the BBC medical drama Doctors.

In September 2008, she appeared in All Star Family Fortunes, winning £10,000 for her charity

She starred in The Pretender Agenda at the New Players Theatre (formerly the Players Theatre) with Lee Ryan. Benjamin starred also in the directorial debut from FX Artist Tristan Versluis the UK horror film called Not Alone.[1]

She was a contestant in the ITV1 series I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!

Benjamin recently was in the UK Nationwide tour of the West End hit stage show, Hairspray.

Personal life[edit]

Benjamin married oil businessman Richard Taggart at Babington House, Somerset on 30 March 2006.[2] The couple met during a flight to Dubai and became engaged three months later.

Benjamin and Taggart now live in Gidea Park, greater London.[3] She is a fan of West Ham United F.C..[citation needed] In the first episode of the The X Factor: Battle of the Stars show on 31 May 2006, Sharon Osbourne let slip that Benjamin was pregnant. Evidently shocked at the revelation, Benjamin smiled while host Kate Thornton commented: “I don’t think you wanted that announced tonight, did you?”. Osbourne always commented on the fact that she was pregnant and constantly praised her for her singing talents.[4] Benjamin gave birth by caesarean section to a daughter at Harold Wood Hospital, east London on 22 November 2006.[5] On 19 October 2010, she revealed that she was three-months pregnant with her second child.[6] In April 2011, she gave birth to a second daughter.

She is a patron of the charity Rosie’s Rainbow Fund.

In May 2015, she was awarded £157,250 by Mr Justice Mann as part of a £1.2-m celebrity payout during the phone hacking scandal of the Mirror Group newspapers (Trinity Mirror), under her married name Lucy Taggart.

Lisa Robin Kelly (March 5, 1970 – August 15, 2013)[1] was an American actress. She was best known for her role as Laurie Forman on the TV series That ’70s Show.

Early life[edit]

Kelly was born and raised in Southington, Connecticut.[2][3] Her parents were Thomas Carl Kelly and Linda Diane (née Grimm) Kelly.[1]


Kelly made her debut in the 1992 Married… with Children episode “Kelly Doesn’t Live Here Anymore”. She appeared again in 1997 in episodes of Silk Stalkings and on Charmed in 1999, as well as in direct-to-video and television films such as Amityville Dollhouse, Late Last Night, and Jawbreaker.

Kelly played Laurie Forman, the older sister of Eric Forman, on That ’70s Show. She abruptly left the show midway through the third season, and her character was written out of the show to “attend beauty school”. She returned to the show in the fifth season for four episodes, but was replaced with Christina Moore in the sixth season. In an interview with ABC News, she admitted that “with That ’70s Show I was guilty of a drinking problem, and I ran”, blaming her alcoholism on the loss of a baby.[4]

Legal issues[edit]

In August 2010, Kelly was arrested in North Carolina on a charge of driving under the influence.[5] In November 2010, she pleaded guilty and was fined and sentenced to 12 months of unsupervised probation.[6]

On March 31, 2012, Kelly was arrested on a felony charge of corporal injury upon a spouse, and was released on $50,000 bail. The charge was based on a complaint filed by her ex-boyfriend, John Michas.[7][8] She later made public statements saying that she was the one who had been assaulted, and denied Michas’ claim that she assaulted him.[8][9] The Los Angeles County District Attorney declined to file charges.[10]

In November 2012, police in Mooresville, North Carolina arrested the 42-year-old Kelly and her 61-year-old husband, Robert Joseph Gilliam, after responding to a disturbance at their home. Both were charged with assault and released on bond.[11][12] She later filed for divorce and a restraining order against Gilliam.[13]

On June 23, 2013, Kelly was arrested for a suspected DUI when law enforcement responded to a call about a parked car blocking a lane of traffic on the I-5 freeway. She subsequently failed a field-sobriety test.[14]


Days after checking into Pax Rehab House in Altadena, California, Kelly died in her sleep at the facility on August 15, 2013, aged 43.[1] On January 3, 2014, the Los Angeles Department of Coroner concluded that her death was due to an accidental unspecified oral “multiple drug intoxication”.[15][16][17][18] In June 2014, Kelly’s estranged husband filed a lawsuit against the rehabilitation center where she was being treated and subsequently died, claiming negligence.[13][19]
