Freddy Cannon, now 72, reveals what it was like to become a teenage star during the early days of rock ‘n’ roll in his new autobiography, titled Where the Action Is.

Cannon scored a number of memorable UK Top 20 hits in the late-1950s and early-1960s, including ‘Tallahassee Lassie’ (1959), ‘Way Down Yonder in New Orleans’ (UK No. 3 in 1960), ‘Palisades Park’ (1962), and ‘Action’ (1965) from the US TV music show Where the Action Is.

His debut album, The Explosive Freddy Cannon, also topped the UK album charts in 1960.

Cannon has written his memoir in collaboration with Mark Bego, the author of 56 other pop and rock biographies on stars such as Elton John, Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Billy Joel, and Aretha Franklin.
