STUDIO CITY (CBS) — Freddy “Boom Boom” Cannon visited KCAL9 Tuesday to talk about his autobiography, Where The Action Is!

Cannon, the singer of ’50s and ’60s hits such as “Palisades Park,” “Tallahassee Lassie,” “Way Down Yonder in New Orleans” and “Action!,” just released his new book.

Cannon, who ended up being the most frequented guest star on American Bandstand, nearly became the king of “The Twist” before Chubby Checker.
