Trini Lopez is celebrating his 85th birthday today. As a number of online tributes attest, he is one of the most acclaimed singers of his generation.
Popular singer Trini Lopez (If I Had a Hammer, ...) has always liked to keep a bit of himself hidden from view. At 85th birthday, he remains a man of many facets.
Lopez, a cultural icon
Born Trinidad López III in Dallas on May 15, 1937, his career spans an arc over many different eras and tastes in American history. Lopez's not just a great singer, he's an inspiration, an icon and a successful business man. At this point in his career, there seems to be little Trini hasn't done.
