“Darlene Love’s thunderbolt voice is as embedded in the history of rock and roll as Eric Clapton’s guitar or Bob Dylan’s lyrics.” – New York Times
Darlene Love has captivated audiences worldwide with her warm, gracious stage presence and superb performances. Her career began in in the early sixties as part of Phil Spector’s “wall of sound” hit factory. Her work includes major motion pictures, including Lethal Weapon, and Broadway musical hits like Hairspray and Grease. She also starred as herself in Leader of the Pack, credited as Broadway’s first ‘jukebox musical.’ Darlene has appeared on numerous television programs, running the gamut from her weekly appearances on Shindig to a guest spot on the PBS special entitled Women Who Rock.
In the early years, Darlene’s background vocals as lead singer for The Blossoms behind The Righteous Brothers, Dionne Warwick, Marvin Gaye, Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley (to name but a few) set the stage for her emergence as a star in her own right.
Rolling Stone Magazine has proclaimed Darlene Love to be “one of the greatest singers of all time” and that certainly rings true, but perhaps Paul Shaffer says it even more concisely, “Darlene Love is Rock N’ Roll!”
