The short bio looks like this: LFO is Brad Fischetti, the disappeared Devin Lima, and the late great Rich Cronin. We burst on to the scene in 1999 with the smash hit Summer Girls from our debut self-titled album. We followed Summer Girls with another top-ten hit in Girl on TV. In 2001, we released our second album, Life is Good, which spawned the top-ten hit, Every Other Time. We decided to go on hiatus in 2002. In 2005, Rich was diagnosed with leukemia. In 2009 we regrouped for a reunion tour. It was short but perhaps the closest we have ever been as a group. We realized the deep love and respect we had for each other and our bond was fortified. In 2010 we lost Rich to his earthly battle with cancer but our brother won eternal life in Heaven.
In the summer of 2017 Devin and Brad reunited for the Rich in Love Tour. The tour was a great success and 2nd and 3rd legs were being planned. Two months after the tour, Devin was diagnosed with adrenal cancer. One year later, Devin disappeared.
I’m not sure the words exist to describe how it feels to type these realities. If the words do exist, they won’t fit on this particular page. Words I can share are these – I will continue to keep Rich and Devin’s legacy alive and introduce a new generation to the LFO sound.
Much love and many blessings,
