The original Coasters (1956-1968) were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1987 and are most famous for their hits Yakety-Yak, Charlie Brown, Down in Mexico, and Searchin’. Though they broke up in 1968, every original member has since had his own touring version of the band over the years. Lawrence and his musical partner Jessie Floyd began playing + touring with original Coasters members Billy Guy and Will “Dub” Jones in 1983 when Lawrence and Jessie ran into Billy Guy by chance at the Gower Gulch Denny’s in Hollywood.  They bought Guy lunch and the idea came up of putting together a new unit of The Coasters. They contacted Will “Dub” Jones who agreed to come aboard, then got Jessie’s cousin Kendal Floyd to join and within days the next incarnation of the band was born. They played together for 17 years till the passing of Jones and then Guy whereupon they retired the band.  -   From Lawrence Mcue (Ryan Romera Photography) web site.
