Stand By Me
Cassius Clay

Cassius Clay became Muhammad Ali.

As Cassius he won the gold medal for boxing at the Olympics before turning professional.

He recorded Stand By Me which was a fair cover of the Ben E King song. He also did a duet with his best friend Sam Cooke.

Stand By Me was the B side of I Am The Greatest Ali’s less than modest elegy to his own fabulousness. But hey, who’s going to argue?
