"The Drifters were the all time greatest Atlantic recording group" said Ahmet Ertegun, founder of Atlantic Recording Company and the esteemed Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  "The best act of its  genre on the music scene today" has been used often to describe Bill Pinkney's legacy group.

In 1988 the Rock Hall inducted originals Bill Pinkney, Clyde McPhatter, and Gerhardt Thrasher, along with subsequent members Ben E. King, Charlie Thomas, Rudy Lewis, and Johnny Moore - the seven significant contributors to The Drifters' legacy. Thomas and King remain alive today.
