You are so right. I know that Leo never sang with The originals But I think he does own the Trademark for the name . He's been ripping people off for years

Thanks for calling this guy Leo what he is. A total phoney fraud who has been getting away for years passing himself off as an original Cavalier and making money using their name. He seems to keep mostly to the Long Island are where he lives so I guess he doesnt attract too much attention to himself. He is a piece of crap who takes credit for something he had absolutely nothing to do with. Calling him an original Cavalier is like calling him an original Beatle. it is no different. A true BUM in every sense of the word!

Not sure about your hall of honor statement...perhaps you can enlighten me as to it's actual whereabouts....certainly not on the site you claim. J. Franks' name isn't even listed, nor the Cavaliers.

I have to tell you. SC Leg. should stay out of this. There is a State Law now and we don't need any Local Laws. We have enough Laws. I am an Original Cavalier (LAST KISS) from the recording Studio. 1964 There are plenty of Cavaliers all over the country. I own the Trade mark. I don't really care. I work with my guys and we are happy. I think this was made bigger then it should have been. I am glad for the law but we don't have any problem here on Long Island. Lenny is a good friend of mine but he likes to see his name in the papers like all of us do. I wish everyone the best of luck. Don't hurt our love DOO WOP.
Leo not only are you a thief you are also pretty NIEVE to belive you can always get away with your SCAM!

well Leo you are a fake
I KNOW FOR SURE
Guess some one needs to do something about this
Suggest you stop telling your false statements and pay for your story telling - i am certain you have made money from this - i have read your application - you know who i am
i tried to settle with you now i guess i need to do what i can to prevent any further abuse - suggestion for you is to settle - or get a lawyer - settling is lots cheaper
kind regards leo

I went to a Yankees game the other day, and I didn't see Babe Ruth; Lou Gehrig; or Joe Di Maggio!!! What a blatant RIP-OFF!!!!

Isn't there a Truth In Baseball law? I need the government to make more laws to strangulate....I mean regulate every aspect of human conduct, so that I will never have to exercise any due diligence myself.

I will gladly pay $10K a year in property taxes; plus the 29 other taxes we pay; along with fees and surcharges, to these wonderful politicians who obviously have my best interests at heart, and who are building a society in which I can go through life not giving a damn, yet being fully protected from stuff that I don't care enough about to assess and choose myself!

Sure, it means that at every turn everything we do will be controlled by the government- but I'm used to it, because already, at least 60 times a day, I hear "I can't do that; It's against the law.", but isn't that a small price to pay to be "protected"?!!!!

Plus, these politicians need something to do. I mean, we wouldn't want to see them working in the private sector- actually accomplishing something; earning their keep; and producing something of value, would we? Since they have already pretty much exhausted all the possibilities of regulating our personal lives; our finances; our businesses and our families, if we begrudge them the opportunity to create more inane laws at our expense and to our detriment, what will they do?

they're not phoney groups. use your heads people, it's been 60 years since the original groups were around. what's the chance that they're all alive. the groups have evolved, but kept the names. anyway, what the difference if they're the originals, they still sound better than any group or single performer today and at least they're singing live and that's what you paid for. they have talent. i'd rather pay money to see them than gaga lipsynching during the vma's sunday. THAT'S phoney!
