A memorial service for Dennis Flemion was held yesterday in West Allis, Wisconsin. Flemion, who for over 30 years had recorded songs together with his brother Jimmy Flemion as the Frogs, died unexpectedly on July 7.
During the service, mourners could view Frogs memorabilia including costumes worn onstage by Flemion and the original artwork from the Frogs’ first album. Both Jimmy Flemion and Smashing Pumpkins singer Billy Corgan performed music at the service, with Corgan’s contribution being a newly written song that he plans to make available online soon.
UPDATE (7/17): Corgan’s song is reportedly titled “25 Surprise.”
