Chanteur noir US né le 15 novembre 1933, originaire de Durham (Caroline du Nord). Clyde McPhatter a débuté en 1950 comme ténor des "Dominoes", qu'il quitte en 1953 pour former les "Drifters". Après son départ à l'armée en 1954, il entame une carrière solo chez Atlantic Records en 1956. Il signe ensuite avec MGM en 1959, puis chez Mercury en 1960. Chanteur puissant et plein de feeling, il décline pourtant à partir de 1964, gâché par l'alcool. Clyde McPhatter est mort d'une crise cardiaque le 13 Juin 1972.
