NEW YORK (AP) — Ben E.
King, the unforgettable lead
singer for the Drifters and solo
star whose plaintive baritone
graced such pop and rhythm ’n
blues classics as Stand by Me,
There Goes My Baby and Spanish
Harlem, has died. He was 76.
King died Thursday of natural
causes in Teaneck,
New Jersey, h
publicist Phil Brown
told The Associated
A native of North
Carolina who grew
up in New York
City, King was sing-
ing with the Five
Crowns when they
were hired in 1958
to become the new
incarnation of the
Drifters, a top act
for Atlantic Records
who had several doo-
wop hits featuring tenor Clyde
McPhatter. The new Drifters,
their records among the first in
the rock era to use strings, had
a more polished production and
vo cal style and became key influ-
ences on numerous ’60s record-
King co-wrote and sang lead
on There Goes My Baby, and he
and the Drifters followed with
such favorites as Save the Last
Dance for Me and This Magic Mo-
ment, romantic and emotional
ballads mostly written by the
team of Doc Pomus and Mort Shu-
Known for his warm smile and
trim mustache, King didn't stay
long. He left the Drifters in the
early ’60s because of a dispute
over salary and royalties, but
quickly found success on his own.
He broke through with Spanish
Harlem, co-written by Phil Spec-
tor and Je rry Leiber, and sealed
his name in music history with
Stand by Me. A rewo rked gos-
pel number co-written by King,
Leiber and Mike Stoller, Stand
by Me was a soaring declara-
tion of dependence and devo-
tion, chosen as one of the Songs
of the Century by the Recording
Industry Association of America
and added earlier this year to the
Library of Congre ss' National Re-
John Lennon covere d it in the
1970s and Stand by Me found new
listeners in the ’80s when it was
featured in the Rob Reiner movie
of the same name. The song re-
turned to the charts and King ap-
peared in a promotional music
video along with cast members
River Phoenix and Wil Wheaton.
“Of course, the kids who had
never heard of a person called
Ben E. King were then aware of
the name associated with the
song,” K ing told the web site clas-
sicbands.com in 1993. “ That gave
a tremendous lift to me as an art-
Ben E. King was a stage name.
He was born Benjamin Earl Nel-
son in Henderson, North Caro-
lina and moved to Harlem at age
9, giving him early exposure to
both country and urban music.
He sang in church and joined lo-
cal street corner groups in Har-
lem, a lthough admittedly as much
to impress girls as for the music.
By age 20, he and some friends
had formed the Five Crowns, who
shared a bill at the Apollo The-
ater with a previous version of
the Drifters and were noticed by
manager George T readwell when
he needed to recruit new singers.
He is survived by his wife,
Betty; three children and six
