Rock the Day The Soul of R&B

June 30, 1956: Clyde McPhatter’s Treasure of Love hits #1 on the R&B chart and #16 on the pop chart. Founder of The Drifters, McPhatter is the most influential R&B singer of the 1950s and 1960s. He battles depression and addiciton, and we tragically lose him in 1972 when he is just 39 years old.
