Lloyd Price (born March 9, 1933) is an American R&B vocalist, known as “Mr. Personality”, after his 1959 million-selling hit, “Personality”. His first recording, “Lawdy Miss Clawdy”, was a hit for Specialty Records in 1952. He continued to release records, but none were as popular until several years later, when he refined the New Orleans beat and achieved a series of national hits. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998. He is also the earliest solo act who is still alive to earn a Billboard Hot 100 number-one single with “Stagger Lee”.

Here’s a TV programming note. All this upcoming week on the “Late Show with David Letterman,” they’ll be saluting Elvis Presley. I’ll be there on Friday night singing with my buddy Paul Shaffer in tribute to Elvis. I haven’t performed with Paul on Letterman since 1987, so I’m “pumped.”

BTW, check out Aaron Neville’s new CD on the Bluenote Record Label entitled “My True Story.” It’s produced by Don Was of “Was Not Was,” and Keith Richards of the “Rolling Stones.” Background vocals provided by Eugene Pitt, Dickie Harmon, Joel Katz and yours truly. I think you’ll like it. I know Ron Kovacs does.
