LFO Boy Bander Rich Cronin Dies at 35

Rich Cronin, the spikey-blonde haired third of 90s/00s boy group LFO, died after suffering a stroke, which followed his battle with leukemia. He was 35 and will be remembered for the talk-singing lyrics, “Fell deep in love, but now we ain’t speakin’/Michael J. Fox was Alex P. Keaton.” I loved that song. It was the hotness.

    And I think it’s fly when girls stop by for the summer! For the summer!

    That was my fucking jam Summer ’99!

    Very sad! My heart goes out to the family! 35 is horribly young!

    I only half remember the song, but the boys were beautiful. A sad time.

    RIP Rich- but Queerty-how is this gay? Was he gay? How is the song gay? -is the song about boys singing about girls? Is this a gay blog/news website?

    I loved Summer Girls, one of my favorite songs of summer ’99, brings back so many memories. Sometimes I wish I could go back to that year.

    Its sad when you hear these things, RIP.

    That’s one hot loss. Wishing the family the best.

  • Fitz

    That’s just sad. I didn’t know them, or even of them, but it’s very sad when 35 y/o dies from Leukemia. It is, frankly, a pretty awful way to go too. I wish his family well, and hope that they can cherish their good memories.


    @Suzygoo: Cause each boy band is required to have at least one homomember……….

    This actually made me quite upset. A part of my childhood was with this band. “The girl on t.v” with Jennifer Lovehewitt in the video was one of the cutest songs. All their music was just fun, and camp, and happy and probably nostalgic for many of us. R.I.P to Rich Cronin.

    @Suzygoo: Get a grip.
