The Drifters were formed in 1953 and included Bill Pinkney, Willie Ferbee, Clyde McPhatter, Andrew Thrasher and Gerhardt Thrasher. Their first release was in September of 1953 with "Money Honey" and "The Way I Feel". In 1988 Bill Pinkney was inducted into the ROCK & ROLL HALL OF FAME along with original members, Clyde McPhatter and Gehardt Thrasher and subsequent members Ben E. King, Charlie Thomas, Rudy Lewis and Johnny Moore. Only Pinkney, King and Thomas are alive today. Bill Pinkney was also inducted into the VOCAL GROUP HALL OF FAME in 1998. Today, Bill Pinkney is the only surviving member of the original group and is still performing for his loving fans with the same enthusiasm and energy he has shown us for 50 years.

WE ARE DEEPLY SADDENED TO ANNOUNCE THAT DR. BILL PINKNEY LEFT US ON JULY 04, 2007 AT THE AGE OF 81. HE WILL BE MISSED BY THOUSANDS OF LOYAL FOLLOWERS.
