Born in Deland, Florida, he briefly attended FAMU before heading out on the professional music circuit. He began his recording career in 1954, eventually scoring hits with Hard Times, Easy Going, and Shaking. He backed up many rock and roll artists such as Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry, Buddy Holly, and the Everly Brothers. Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, he played mostly nightclubs, but made a recording comeback in 1987 with Return of the Thin Man.
