Today is the anniversary of the birth of Rudy Lewis who until his death in 1964 was a member of one of my all time favorite groups: The Drifters. Over the years, the composition of the group has changed and featured some of the best singers in the business but the classic music continues. No other group captured that feel of the late 50s early 60s heat from the sidewalks of big cities. They may have been New York guys, but for a young teenage girl looking at freeways in LA while getting over her first broken heart – 1959’s There Goes My Baby got a major replay workout. To this day when a Drifters song comes on, I have to start dancing.
