Tim Hauser died last week at the age of 72. Hauser was the founder of the vocal group, the Manhattan Transfer.

At an early age Hauser became interested in vocal pop music. He even
sang in his high school glee club.

In 1956, he met the members of Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers.

“I heard them warm up a cappella in the dressing room before a concert, and that did it for me,” said Hauser. “I would say karmically, that was God hitting me with that lightning bolt, going, ‘Here it is, kid; if you miss it, it ain’t my fault.’ ”

When he was still in his teens, Mr. Hauser and a friend started a singing group called the Criterions, recording several songs and appearing on the same bill with groups including Dion and the Belmonts. He later sang in a folk trio, the Troubadours Three.
