Freddy "Boom Boom" Cannon (a.k.a. Freddie Cannon, b. December 4, 1940) is a veteran rock & roll singer and former teen idol who became famous during the late 1950s and early 1960s. His best known songs include "Tallahassee Lassie" (1959), "Way Down Yonder In New Orleans" (1959), "Palisades Park" (1962), and "Action" (1965), from Dick Clark's TV show, "Where The Action Is." Born Frederick Anthony Picariello, Jr. in Revere, Massachusetts, his "Boom Boom" nickname came from the thumping big bass drum sound on his recordings.
