LFO’s Legacy Lives On with Final Song Release

It’s been over a decade since the loss of LFO’s Rich Cronin, but his bandmates Devin Lima and Brad Fischetti are keeping his legacy alive with the release of their final song, “A Perfect 10.”

The upbeat and catchy pop song was released in 2017, with Fischetti making it clear that he and Lima aimed to make Cronin proud. “We’re sincerely thankful and excited to have the opportunity to create new music and tour again. We miss the presence of our late great-brother bandmate Rich Cronin. We will do our best to make him proud, carry on his legacy, and usher LFO into the future,” he told Entertainment Weekly.

Cronin, who passed away in 2010 after a long battle with leukemia, had always wanted LFO to continue. Fischetti recalled a conversation he had with Cronin just 10 days before his death: “He said, ‘Listen, man, people still care about us.’ I know Rich loved LFO, and when you love something, you don’t want to see it end.”

With the release of “A Perfect 10,” Fischetti and Lima had plans to tour before their aspirations were cut short with even more devastating news. Fischetti was about to lose another bandmate and close friend to cancer.

Lima, who had been battling adrenal cancer since 2017, passed away on November 21, 2018, at the age of 41. Fischetti paid tribute to his friend and bandmate on Instagram, writing, “My brother Devin passed away yesterday. My heart is broken. We had a bond that was unbreakable.”

Despite the loss of both Cronin and Lima, Fischetti is determined to keep LFO’s legacy alive. “We just wanted to keep the name alive and go out there and bring some joy to the fans,” he stated to The Ringer.

LFO, which stands for Lyte Funkie Ones, rose to fame in the late 1990s with hits like “Summer Girls” and “Girl on TV.” The trio, made up of Cronin, Fischetti, and Brian Gillis, later became a duo when Gillis left the group in 1999.

Cronin, the lead singer, and songwriter for the group had been battling leukemia for years before his death. He was just 36 years old.

Lima, who joined LFO in 1999, was also a talented singer and songwriter. He released a solo album, “Electric Barnyard,” in 2004, before rejoining LFO in 2010 for a reunion tour.

With the loss of two of its members, LFO’s future remains uncertain. But Fischetti is grateful for the time he spent with both Cronin and Lima and for the opportunity to keep their legacy alive through their music.
