Rock and Roll Lloyd Price 1952

 Lloyd Price was one of the few rock and roll pioneers who actually had some business sense. He went on to have a long and full life in the business world while continuing his recording career. He owned and operated restaurants, home building companies, food manufacturing and lots of other business projects.

His list of hits spanned twenty years starting with Lawdy Miss Clawdy in 1952 and charting into the early 70’s. Lloyd was a New Orleans story teller. His songs always seemed to have more than just good music. There was always a little story to entertain you as well. He is proof that New Orleans had a big influence on early rock.
