Clarence "Frogman" Henry, an opening act for the Beatles 1964 American Tour, has lived in the same home in the Algiers section of New Orleans since 1961. Also occupying his home are lots and lots of frogs—hundreds of stuffed frogs and other forms of the amphibious croakers, covering his grand piano and every shelf and nook of his house—gifts from fans and fellow performers.
I asked Frogman if he ever turned down a frog.
"Never!" he emphatically replied.
My hunt to find a frog that would be unique to his collection resulted in the croaker he holds in this photo.
