Larry Williams

One-time chauffer to Lloyd Price, LARRY WILLIAMS wrote and sang Short Fat Fannie in ’57 backed by Little Richard's band. The lyrics mention at least 15 songs, from Slippin n Slidin to Hound Dog to Blueberry Hill. Larry Williams is also the same man who came close to killing Little Richard over a drug debt. That revolver-brush with death helped send Little Richard back to gospel for several born-again years.
