2/6. Suzi Quatro continues her look at six established greats of rock 'n' roll and pop. Her guest this week is Johnny Maestro, the lead singer of one of the most popular doo-wop groups of the 1950s - the Crests. He's still performing today, and here he tells Suzi fascinating tales about the record business and about touring in the early days of rock 'n' roll. He also uncovers the stories behind the Crests' US hits, including their eternal birthday ballad, Sixteen Candles.
