Lloyd Price

Lloyd Price had no idea that his 1952 recording of "Lawdy Miss Clawdy" would become a cornerstone in the foundation of rock 'n' roll! Masterful piano playing by Fats Domino, perfectly timed drumming by Earl Palmer, as well as the musical arrangement by bandleader Dave Bartholomew helped launch his song into the stratosphere! It was but one recording in a very historic career at the birth of a new style of music. His other hits include “Stagger Lee,” “Just Because” and “Personality.” In 1998 Lloyd was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, very well deserved!
