DION. American singer-songwriter. One of the most popular American rock 'n' roll performers of the pre-british invasion era scoring over a dozen Top 40 hits in the late 1950s and early 60s. He is however best remembered for the exuberant 1961 singles "Runaround Sue" which reached No1 in the charts about a two-timing woman and an accidental answer song "The Wanderer" a No2 hit about a philandering man ...Due to changing public tastes and personal problems, his career faltered in the mid-1960s ; he regained popularity later in the decade and into the early 1970s with more mature, contemplative material such as "Abraham Martin & John" . He continues to make music to the present day, answering the critics who earlier dismissed him as just another teen idol.
