Lennie Baker, Voice of Sha Na Na's 'Blue Moon,' Dies at 69
A longtime member of Sha Na Na who sang lead on the rock and doo-wop group's hit "Blue Moon" has died. Lennie Baker was 69.
Baker's nephew, David Baker, confirmed the musician's death Wednesday at South Shore Hospital in Weymouth, Mass., where he had been briefly hospitalized after developing an infection.
Lennie Baker spent 30 years touring with Sha Na Na as a vocalist and saxophone player. He sang lead on "Blue Moon," which he performed at Carnegie Hall and around the world, and often said it was his favorite tune.
Baker left the group in 2000 and was living on Martha's Vineyard at the time of his death.
Funeral arrangements were incomplete Friday.
Another former Sha Na Na member, Dennis Greene, died in September.
