Did you know ?
Clyde McPhatter was the original lead singer of The Drifters, founder, and named the group.
Ben E King (Stand By Me) was a subsequent lead singer of the Drifters.
Both "Saturday night" and "movies" appeared in two of their record titles !
"Half the world" seems to have been a member of the Drifters, at one time or another.
The manager owned the name and changed the line-up regularly. There are on-going claims to being "the" Drifters.
Cliff Richard's backing group, the Shadows, was originally called the Drifters (no connection),
and in UK many referred to the Drifters as the American Drifters to distinguish them (at least until the name change).
