About Clarence "Frogman" Henry
R&B singer Clarence "Frogman" Henry (so named for his trademark croak) was born and raised on the west bank of the Mississippi River in the Algiers section of New Orleans in 1937. He got his start singing at talent shows, where he would perform dressed as his hero, Professor Longhair. Henry is best known for the novelty gem "Ain't Got No Home." The single kicked off his career in 1956, and while he also scored a handful of minor subsequent hits, Henry never quite duplicated the success of that debut song. Regardless, he has made a life of the song, touring as the Beatles' opening act in 1964 and for decades performing for tourists on Bourbon Street in his hometown.
