CLYDIE KING: DIE BERÜHMTESTE BACKGROUND-SÄNGERIN, DIE KAUM EINER KENNT
- Nov 08, 2022
Her career as a solo singer with her own singles began in 1956. And because Clydie King was so damn good, she remained present in the 60s. Unfortunately without success. Instead, she became one of the most sought-after background singers. She did jobs for the Rolling Stones, Humble Pie, Joe Cocker, Barbra Streisand, Lynyrd Skynyrd ("Sweet Home Alabama") or Bob Dylan - just to name a few of the most famous names. In the seventies she tried a renewed solo start as Brown Sugar, but could celebrate only moderate success with "Loneliness (Will Bring Us Together Again)" in 1973 with a number 44 in the Bilboard charts. Her only Brown Sugar LP, BROWN SUGAR FEATURING CLYDIE KING, also dates from this period. She died of cancer in 2019. To this day, the rumor persists that King was secretly married for a time to Bob Dylan, with whom she is said to have two children.
