Floyd Dakil died Saturday night. Now, that name may not be all that familiar, but back in the 60’s when Lou Ann’s was the hot spot at Greenville and Lovers Lane, Floyd was just a HP student and a member of band, the Floyd Dakil Combo.
Then overnight Floyd and his band shot to fame with Dance, Franny, Dance. In the years that followed, he recorded other 45 RPM’s and played guitar for Louis Prima. And while Floyd never achieved the fame of the Beach Boys, Supremes or Elvis, he was a Dallas representative in the world of Top 40’s.
Our sincere condolences go to his family and friends.
