BLACK SOCIAL HISTORY Wayne Cooper
Member of Cameo (b. March 14, 1955 - d. Sept 22, 1984)
Wayne Cooper (March 14, 1955-1984)
Wayne Cooper was the lead vocalist for the '70s/'80s R&B Funk band Cameo, which were best known for the songs, I Just Want to Be amongst others. He began on the "We All Know Who We Are" album until the "Cameosis" album.
Not much is available on Wayne and his life except that he was born in the northern New York City suburb of Poughkeepsie, New York and was a member of Cameo from approximately 1977-1980. He passed away from A.I.D.S. presumably though some say Leukemia in 1984. It's not clear whether his departure from the group was caused by his illness.
Please post below if you can provide more information on Wayne such as date of birth, career notes or to leave your memories of his musical legacy.
