Gene Molinaro

Gene Molinaro – The Vogues Original Drummer
April 24, 1940 – September 19, 2009

“Gene was a member of a Pittsburgh group known as “The Racket Squad” and played with The Original Vogues during the 60’s and 70’s.  While playing for The Vogues, he was the only one in the group who tied his bow tie.  The rest of us wore clip-on ties.  Half way through the show, he would untie it like Sinatra did on many occasions.  He was an excellent drummer and good friend.”

We will miss you, Gene
