Patrick Samson, stage name of Sulaimi Khoury (Beirut, June 17, 1946), is a Lebanese singer. His artistic activity, after some periods in French, took place mainly in Italy.

Born in Lebanon, in 1961 he moved with his family to France, where his father, manager of night clubs and discos, introduced him into the musical environment: Patrick began the activity as a singer, forming his own complex together with his brother Soussou (solo guitar) in 1963, Patrick Samson & Les Pheniciens, recording some 45 laps in French and also performing in the Olympia in 1965.

He moved to Italy around 1965, brought by an impresario on the wave of French successes.

In a short time he gets a contract with ARC, with which he publishes the first 45 laps; the genre that the Patrick Samson Set (so the group changes its name in Italy since 1967) proposes a Rhythm and blues with beat influences.

The members of the complex are nine, four English and one French that complete the original band. The artistic direction is by Roger Warwick (baritone sax, recruited by Patrick's brother, Sandy, from the famous American Anglo group of R & B "Mack Sound"), there is a section of wind instruments and the inevitable Hammond organ; later they also enter into the group also valid Italian musicians, at the beginning of their career, as the Triestine drummer Euro Cristiani (who replaces Nigel Pegrum, who years later will play in Steeleye Span, in turn substitute of Gaby Lizmi, who joined the Ferry group, Franco, René, Danny and Gaby, born from the ashes of the New Dada). The group is joined by the saxophonist Claudio Pascoli and the Turinese Guido Guglielminetti on bass and Umberto Tozzi on guitar.
In 1970, only for the tour in Lebanon and the concert in Turin, he joined the group as bassist Eugenio Sartini, from Rome.

His greatest success is "Soli Si Muore", by Tommy James and the Shondells, with a text written by Mogol and Cristiano Minellono: with this song he was for many weeks in the first places in hit parade (1969) and he arrived at the second place at the Festivalbar.
