Alright,showing my age,just watched a blistering joint concert from 1972 at Wembley Stadium on Sky Arts 1 featuring Jerry Lee Lewis,Bill Haley,Little Richard and Chuck Berry...such power,energy and talent-wow!
My new favorite Pandora station is one I created under the heading, "Wake Up, Li'l Susie." Thanks, Sharon, for suggesting it! Everly Brothers, Bill Haley, Chuck Berry, Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, and the list goes on. I like it. A lot.
bill haley is a nice touch-how did elvis create it? It has blues roots...and furthermore, What about Chuck Berry?
Little Richard is retiring. Chuck Berry,Bo Diddley,Elvis, Fats Domino,Jerry Lee Lewis and Little Richard are my Mount Rushmore of Rock And Roll. Rock Around The Clock is a killer song...Bill Haley does not make the cut. Little Richard had it all going on! He could sing like crazy, write and he could play piano really well...I am referring to him in the past tense. Richard is living...he just retired...this is so confusing... C'mon...have you ever watched or heard a Little Richard song and not smiled? Richard Penniman was a conflicted man. He was a man of God and quit playing Rock And Roll at the height of his fame. He had other Demons that he was forced to live with in secrecy because of the beliefs of our society in the 1950's.I hope this is getting better...this type of commentary is clearly out of my depth. I love Little Richard. I am going to miss him. I hope the road he paved makes it easier for those who came later. Now, make to the music! Rip it up,Good Golly miss Molly, Tutti Frutti, Lucille a ...
4 hours of Johnny Cash, Elvis, Chuck Berry and Bill Haley. I am absolutely an old man.
Now that I no longer do Society and Culture, I have added a whole bunch of Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis and Bill Haley to spotify
We went to see Rave On tonight - the Buddy Holly Story, at the Springer. What a nostalgia trip! As a kid I loved Doo *** music (think the Platters, Coasters and Dion and the Belmonts). The first rock & roll song I remember was Bill Haley's "Rock Around The Clock" which came out around 1954. Next came Elvis and great guitar players like Bo Diddley, B.B. King, and Chuck Berry, making the move from rhythm and blues to rock. Rave On was a tribute to Buddy Holly, a major star who unfortunately was killed in a plane crash in 1959, along with the "Big Bopper." The first half of the show featured Buddy's great songs like "Peggy Sue," "That'll be the Day," and "Oh Boy." It was fun to see my friend Stan Edwards burning up the fiddle and my former Central High band student Kevin Vannoy belting out melodies on his tenor sax and harmonica. Listening to the steel guitar, I was transported back to some high school gym Homecoming where I awkwardly steered my date around the floor to "Sleep Walk" by Santo and Johnny. The ...

A little bit of history for those of us who remember...who lived thru it...who bought.who changed things. In today's selection - the Rock And Roll revolution rode in on the rails of technology. Disapproving parents in the 1950s might have been in control of the family record player, but they couldn't control a brand new marvel of technology, the portable transistor radio, which enterprising manufacturers would sell to the newly prosperous postwar teens for $1 down and $1 a month. Portable record players were not far behind. In fact, the average teen had almost as much disposable income as entire families had had only fifteen years earlier: "[Elvis] Presley's [career] timing was nearly perfect. The [Rock And Roll] crossover, led by Bill Haley, Chuck Berry, and Little Richard, was in full force. Parents might disapprove of the beat and of their children listening to what they knew was black music. But their disapproval only added to Presley's popularity and made him more of a hero among the young. Local min ...

Amazingly enough, Yoko Ono will turn 80 years of age on Monday. She's just one of the personalities associated with the first few decades of the rock culture who are getting very long in the tooth. Bill Haley would be 88. Chuck Berry is 86. Bo Diddley would be 84. The Big Bopper would be 82. Elvis Presley would be 78. Bill Wyman is 76. Buddy Holly would be 76. And Alan Freed, the disc jockey who is widely -- but wrongly -- credited with coining the term "Rock And Roll," would be 91. Another way of looking at it is that the oldest teenagers when the first rock recording hit the charts in 1953 -- "Crazy Man Crazy," by Bill Haley and the Comets -- are now almost 80.
Listening to some good ole soulful Ray Charles, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, Bo Diddley, Carl Perkins, Bill Haley, Fats Domino, Sam Cooke, Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Jackie Wilson.man...what the heck happened to real music like this? Today's music has it all wrong!
The 1950s - The Beginnings of Rock 'n Roll The 1950s were a decade full of changes. World War II was over, and soldiers returned home and started families, beginning the baby boom. People could afford goods not available during wartime, including homes, and the increase in affordable, single-family homes created suburbia. Segregation was still a reality, but it was beginning to change and integration was becoming a more accepted idea. Televisions were becoming the center of American living rooms, and so began the television's influence on popular culture. Rock 'n Roll In this time of change, a new form of music was gaining popularity within the youth culture of the 50s. Rock 'n Roll, which was born out of a mixing of blues, gospel, and country, was breaking the conservative mold of the time. Rockers like Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, Bill Haley, and Buddy Holly became stars and laid the foundation for much of the music we listen to today. * Iskra

we're going ALL the way back to the 50s on Bill Haley - Rock Around The Clock,Jerry Lee Lewis & Chuck Berry next.
Bill Haley Bill Haley is the neglected hero of early rock & roll. Elvis Presley and Buddy Holly are ensconced in the heavens, transformed into veritable constellations in the rock music firmament, their music respected by writers and scholars as well as the record-buying public, virtually every note of music they ever recorded theoretically eligible for release. And among the living rock & roll pioneers, Chuck Berry is given his due in the music marketplace and by the history books, and Bo Diddley is acknowledged appropriately in the latter, even if his music doesn't sell the way it should. Yet Bill Haley -- who was there before any of them, playing rock & roll before it even had a name, and selling it in sufficient quantities out of a small Pennsylvania label to attract attention from the major labels before Presley was even recording in Memphis -- is barely represented by more than a dozen of his early singles, and recognized by the average listener for exactly two songs among the hundreds that he recor ...
Buddy Holly Buddy Holly is perhaps the most anomalous legend of '50s rock & roll -- he had his share of hits, and he achieved major rock & roll stardom, but his importance transcends any sales figures or even the particulars of any one song (or group of songs) that he wrote or recorded. Holly was unique, his legendary status and his impact on popular music all the more extraordinary for having been achieved in barely 18 months. Among his rivals, Bill Haley was there first and established rock & roll music; Elvis Presley objectified the sexuality implicit in the music, selling hundreds of millions of records in the process, and defined one aspect of the youth and charisma needed for stardom; and Chuck Berry defined the music's roots in blues along with some of the finer points of its sexuality, and its youthful orientation (and, in the process, intermixed all of these elements). Holly's influence was just as far-reaching as these others, if far more subtle and more distinctly musical in nature. In a career ...
My kind of music, along with Bill Haley, Platters, Shirelles, Chuck Berry

Happy birthday Chuck Berry! We wouldn't be here without him. Besides the great tunes.when radio was near it's burial in the mid-50's because of the advent of TV, there were 4 things that saved it: the transistor (portability), the development of formats, radio becoming more local (after WW2), and Rock & Roll. And Chuck was right in the middle of that, along with Elvis and that Philly guy (Chester really) Bill Haley. Long live Rock & Roll.

This Day In Music: August 29th 1958, Alan Freed's Big Beat Show opened at the Fox Theatre in Brooklyn. Those performing included Frankie Avalon, Jimmy Clanton, Chuck Berry, Bobby Freeman, Bill Haley and his Comets and The Elegants. 1959, The Quarry Men (John Lennon, Paul Mccartney, George Harrison, and Ken Brown) performed at the Casbah Coffee Club, Hayman's Green, West Derby, Liverpool. This is the opening night of a new teen club in a large Victorian house that is owned by Mrs. Mona Best and the first of seven straight Saturdays that The Quarry Men play here. The band shared one microphone connected to the house P.A. 1964, Rob Orbison's 'Oh, Pretty Woman' was released in the US. It went on to reach No.1 four weeks later. The title was inspired by Orbison's wife Claudette interrupting a conversation to announce she was going out; when Orbison asked if she was okay for cash, his co-writer Bill Dees interjected "A Pretty Woman never needs any money." 1966, The Beatles played their last concert before a pay ...
In this day in 1958, Alan Freed's 'Big Beat Show' opened at the Fox Theatre in Brooklyn. Feat Frankie Avalon, Chuck Berry, Bill Haley
but why?? don't you think Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Carl Perkins or Bill Haley are more deserving of that title?
A history of Rock And Roll in 10 songs “Shake, Rattle and Roll” by Bill Haley and the Comets. Not the first rock song, but what is? The purpose of rock is to get people to knock boots and make babies. This song best set the tone for what would follow. Besides, it is the first song I remember hearing. “Sweet Little Sixteen” by Chuck Berry. Bemused social commentary by an underappreciated essayist of all things teen, with a good beat that you can dance to. Every Chuck Berry song tells a story. Besides, it inspired Brian Wilson. “Love Me Tender” by Elvis. He seduces the world, becomes a movie star and dyes his hair black all to the tune of an old Confederate love song. Not his best song, of course, but the one best showcases a wonderful voice. Besides, it makes women dreamy-eyed and the dreamier her eyes, the more she wants to knock boots. “Let’s Twist Again” by Chubby Checker. Good beat and you can dance to it. It’s not that you Twist, it’s that you remember twistin’ last summer when ...
I like Chuck Berry more than I like Bill Haley.
Chuck Berry and Bill Haley, as a storm comes rolling in... my life has suddenly turned into a Zooey Deschanel commercial. :)
Before Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Chuck Berry, there was the father of Rock 'n Roll, Bill Haley.

1955- 955 consumerism takes off in a big way with the sale of some 7.9 million cars in the US with 7 out of 10 families now owning a motor car, and new laws were put in place requiring seat belts to be installed on all new cars. The average wages were now $3,851 per year, and the minimum wage was raised to $1.00 per hour. The first McDonalds was erected in 1955 and more fast foods and TV dinners are appearing including fish fingers. The first cans of Coca-Cola are sold up till then it had only been sold in bottles. Rock And Roll music continues to grow in popularity with more idols including Elvis Presley , Bill Haley and the Comets, Chuck Berry and The Platters, and young men's fashion matches the times with pink shirts and charcoal grey suits.

Wow, last nite was Rock And Roll nite on TCM! First they show "Rock Around The Clock" which of course as a good r'n'r fan I have already seen, but it was still fun to see Bill Haley and the incredible Tony Williams of Platters' fame. What a voice! And of course Mr. Moondog Matinee was along for the ride. Next they show "Go Johnny Go" with the still amazing Chuck Berry, jangling those chords and being a pretty fine actor to boot. Jackie Wilson was incredible, as the singing and whirling human dervish, as was Ritchie Valens in his only screen performance. He actually looked a lot like that kid who became famous recently on the internet for posting the video about being suicidal about *** bullying. The show also had the Cadilllacs, and Harvey Fuqua, of the Moonglows and the Flamingos. Lastly, Eddie Cochran sang "Teenage Heaven" and need I say more. Finally, they ended with a film I'd never seen..."Jamboree" from 1957. Lawdy Miss Clawdy...and no, Richard Penniman was not there, but this was made up for by hav ...
Before the game started I went down memory lane on TCM watching "Rock Around The Clock" and "Go, Johnny Go" with Bill Haley and the Comets, the Platters, Chuck Berry, Etc. Dumb movies, but great music!
I heard of him. But talk to me about Elvis, about Bill Haley & the Comets; about Little Richard and Chuck Berry!
Many attribute Bill Haley and The Comets with the birth of Rock And Roll. Though Bill Haley did help make it popular, he was preceded by others. In particular was Sister Rosetta Tharpe, an African American Gospel singer who was willing to cross the lines between Gospel and Jazz. Her recording of "Strange Things Happening Every Day" recorded in 1944, is considered by many to be the first Rock And Roll record. Performers like Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Isaac Hayes and Aretha Franklin have named her as major influences in their music. Johnny Cash once said that Rosetta Tharpe was his favorite singer when he was growing up. To quote Chuck Berry, "Hail, Hail Rock And Roll".
Sounds interesting, before I discovered Dylan I was a pre-teen rock n roller! Saw Bill Haley, Jerry Lee and Chuck Berry :-)
I am surprised how few people posted something about the passing of *** Clark. I am the youngest of 7 children in my family and I can remember watching Bandstand from my earliest years. It was a big part of my musical journey all of my life and I have rung in many New Years watching *** Clark! You hear about a lot of celebrities passing and think oh that's too bad but, some really were a part of your life, like *** Clark. He was a cool and classy guy. He helped transform rock 'n' roll into a cultural force, and in the beginning he did it by introducing artists such as Chuck Berry, Bill Haley and the Comets, James Brown, Buddy Holly and the Everly Brothers for the first time. All made their national television debuts on "Bandstand." He introduced over 10,00 acts on Bandstand.
they love rock n roll but cant tell me who Alan Freed, Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Bill Haley, Carl Perkins etc.. are lol
