Dennis Greene, R. I. P.

The New York Times: Dennis Greene, a founding member of Sha Na Na, a band that became famous in the 1970s for its simultaneously nostalgic and comedic approach to the rock ’n’ roll of the 1950s, died on Saturday at a hospital near his home in Dayton, Ohio. He was 66.

I love the way the Times obituary avoided mentioning the obvious, that Greene was the only black member of the group. ("Fourth from the left in the back row.")
