The Best Of Luck To You
Hymn Number 5
Earl Gaines sang the blues, played drums. He toured with Bo Diddley, Etta James and Big Joe Turner. He also played drums with The Hi-Toppers.
He left the music business around 1975 and for ten years or so swapped the drums for a truck, becoming a driver.
After re-emerging in the 1980’s he had quite a lot of success, including the release of two of his own albums, The Different Feelings Of Blues and Soul and Nothin’ But The Blues.
