Roy James Brown (September 10, 1920 or 1925 – May 25, 1981) was an American R&Bsinger, songwriter and musician, who had a significant influence on the early development of rock and roll and the direction of R&B. His original song and hit recording "Good Rockin' Tonight" has been covered by many artists including Wynonie HarrisElvis PresleyBruce SpringsteenRicky NelsonJerry Lee LewisPat BooneJames Brown, the Doors, and the rock group Montrose. Brown was the first singer in recording history to sing R&B songs with a gospel-steeped delivery, which was then considered taboo by many churches. In addition, his melismatic, pleading vocal style influenced notable artists such as B.B. KingBobby BlandElvis PresleyJackie WilsonJames Brown and Little Richard.

Early life and education

Brown was born in Kinder, Louisiana. Some sources report his birth date as September 10, 1925, but the researchers Bob Eagle and Eric LeBlanc gave the date as September 10, 1920, on the basis of information in the 1930 census and Social Security records, and stated that 1925 is incorrect.  … Read all the original text here >>>  Roy Brown
