About Roy Perkins
Roy Perkins (born Ernie Suarez, 26 April 1935, Lafayette, Louisiana) was an American rock & roll rhythm & blues and rockabilly singer and piano player. Ernie was of Spanish/Irish extraction. Life was tough for his family during the depression. His dad was a bartender and would come home drunk, spin some old blues 78s and dance round the house with his wife. He got the record from a pal who was a jukebox operator. Boogie pianist Cecil Gant was a great influence on little Ernie. He tried to copy the licks on his granny's piano in the house next door.
