Joanie Sommers (real name Joan Drost ) was an American pop singer and actress whose greatest success came with the 1962 release of the hit single, "Johnny Get Angry." Born in Buffalo, NY on February 24, 1941, she was 18 years old when Warner Bros. signed her to a contract in 1959 and paired her with Edd "Kookie" Byrnes on one of his singles. She also had a small role in "77 Sunset Strip", the television series that featured Byrnes in the role of Kookie. In addition, she sang on Byrnes' "I Don't Dig You" and "Hot Rock," which appeared on one of his albums. This is Don't Pity Me (Warner Bros 7” 1965).
