"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. Later singles, however, were unsuccessful, though she continued to record into the early 1970s."

  1. This Bio information on Lillian Briggs is old and inaccurate. Please HONOR HER MEMORY by updating your post using wikipedia 2011. Moreover it is unkind and untrue that her later singles were unsiccessful. This is a subjective opinion from All-Music that persists on the Internet.
