Dion is best known for his solo career with great pop hits such as Lonely Teenager, Runaround Sue, The Wanderer, Ruby Baby and Donna The Prima Donna. He skillfully combined elements of doo-wop, R&B and rock 'n' roll and matured into a versatile and influential figure in the early years of rock music. Over time, he continued to develop as an artist, successfully exploring various genres such as blues and folk.
Dion's influence on the industry and popular music has been significant, his contributions from the early era of rock 'n' roll have cemented his place among the greats of popular music. In 1989, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
