Dancer and actor Adolfo “Shabba Doo” Quinones, who rose to fame first as a Soul Train dancer then as a member of 70’s dance group The Lockers, passed away at his home in L.A. on Wednesday. Authorities say he was found unconscious by a roommate on Wednesday night. He was 65 years old. He had posted a picture of himself earlier in the week in bed with a caption saying that he was recuperating from a cold and that he had tested negative for Covid-19. “Shabba Doo” along with Fred “Rerun” Berry and Las Vegas native Toni Basil were the most recognizable members of the dance group The Lockers who got their start on Soul Train. Shabba Doo also starred in the movies “Breakin'” and “Breakin’ 2” and was a noted choreographer. He choreographed Lionel Richie’s “All Night Long” video. He is survived by a daughter and a son.
