(Newser) – Rich Cronin, lead singer of '90s boy band trio LFO, is dead. Cronin, 35, who wrote hits including Summer Girls, suffered a stroke after a long battle with leukemia, TMZ reports. The Boston native set up the Rich Cronin Hope Foundation to raise funds to fight the disease he was diagnosed with in 2005. He toured with a reunited LFO last year and was working on new music.
