Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lillian Briggs (b. Lillian Biggs, June 3, 1932 - d. Apr. 11, 1998) was an American rockabilly musician. Briggs was raised in Allentown, Pennsylvania. In the early 1950s she worked as a truck driver and played trombone in Joy Cayler's All-Girl Orchestra. In 1952 Alan Freed asked her to appear in his New York City stage shows, and her popularity in these shows led to her signing with Epic Records in 1954. Her first single was 1955's "I Want You to Be My Baby"; the song sold over 1 million copies and hit #18 on the Billboard Hot 100. Following this she appeared on The Tonight Show and The Steve Allen Show, and won a part in the 1961 Jerry Lewis movie The Ladies Man.show more
