Frankie Ford

Sea Cruise
#14 in 1959

Frankie Ford was born on August 4, 1939 in Gretna, Louisiana, the adopted son of Vincent and Anna Guzzo. Ford's only Top 20 hit was with "Sea Cruise", sung to a previously recorded Huey "Piano" Smith backing track, released on Ace Records. He is known all over the world as the "New Orleans Dynamo", and spends about 200 days a year on the road. Nevertheless, Ford remains a one-hit wonder. Frankie still lives in New Orleans. Frankie Ford passed away in his home in Gretna, Louisana, on September 28, 2015, after a long illness. He was 76 years old.
