SINGER TRINI LOPEZ IS 78 TODAY


Trinidad "Trini" López III was born in Dallas, Texas.

Lopez formed his first band in Wichita Falls, Texas, at the age

and his group "The Big Beats" went to producer Norman Petty
in Clovis, New Mexico. Petty secured them to a contract with
Columbia Records, which released the single "Clark’s Expedition"
/"Big Boy", both instrumental. Lopez left the group and made his
first solo recording, his own composition "The Right To Rock",
for the Dallas-based Volk Records.

"If I Had a Hammer (The Hammer Song)" is a song written by Pete Seeger and Lee Hays. It was written in 1949 in support of the progressive movement.
