Happy Birthday Lloyd Price

Lloyd Price was only 19 years old when he had the number 1 R&B song in the US, “Lawdy Miss Clawdy,” that’s Dave Bartholomew producing the cut with Fats Domino on piano. Mr Price always gets heavy play on 9th Ward pirate radio.

Price turns 87 today.

If you ever find yourself riding around in Kenner, Louisiana where Price was born, you may stumble upon Lloyd Price Avenue, his hometown’s homage to the legend.
