The Chantels were teen friends from the Bronx when they had their hit “Maybe” in 1957. That was years before what we think of as the Girl Group era. Plus, as you can see in this photo, they also knew how to play. They’ve finally been nominated for the Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame, that laughable institution of exclusion. So if you’re among the anointed few, vote. Thanks to author Randall Grass for the great photo and tip.
