Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame 2014 Induction Ceremony Debuts on HBO ...But the voice that did not make it to Barclays Center may well be the most profound. Linda Ronstadt was the lone non-songwriting singer among the batch and its possible the Rock Hall will never again honor an individual who built a career strictly on pipes and taste. Her inductor Glenn Frey of the Eagles recited the songs well-known prior to her burnishing them with new interpretations in the 1970s. The mind heard the names of the originators. Buddy Holly. Smokey Robinson. Chuck Berry. The Everly Brothers. Martha and the Vandellas. The Eagles. The list Frey did not read was the one filled with songwriters whose work was not known by mainstream audiences until Ronstadt recorded them. Jackson Browne. Warren Zevon. JD Souther. Anna McGarrigle. Lowell George. Karla Bonoff. Elvis Costello. Ronstadt, as important a country rock progenitor as anyone, survived as a song interpreter at a time when publish or perish had as much relevance in rock ...

March 28th: On this Day 1958, Buddy Holly kicked off the first night of a 43 date tour at Brooklyn Paramount Theatre in Brooklyn, New York.

Lennon had decided he wanted to end the song with animal sound effects, and asked that they be sequenced in such a way that each success ...
And I'm not just talking about the beatles. I'm talking about the likes of; Elvis, Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, Billy Joel
This is a fair and clever summary of what happened between 1949 and 1954, when black and white musical traditions cross-educated each other, and then disc jockey Alan Freed popularized the phrase "rock and roll," which was black slang for having sex.   Now along comes Rolling Stone magazine, huckstering a commercial myth to sell magazines, get advertising, and make a buck. Along the way, they falsify and simplify the history of America's music.   The current issue, which celebrates the 50th anniversary of the creation of rock 'n' roll and is stuffed with advertisements, declares that Elvis Presley invented the music. This is revisionist history as a marketing gimmick.   No one person started rock 'n' roll. It was a black and white alloy of Fats Domino, Lloyd Price, Ike Turner, Hank Williams, Joe Turner, Louis Jordan, Ray Charles, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Buddy Holly - and Elvis Presley.   Presley himself never claimed to have invented rock 'n' roll. He always talked ab ...

“I went to shows by Chuck Berry, Lavern Baker, Little Richard, and Fats Domino,” recalled [Robbie] Robertson, “and I saw a couple versions of the Alan Freed shows. I met Buddy Holly. [I remember that the sound of] his guitar blasted out of his amp; there was something about it beyond the normal. All these little pieces fit into the puzzle perfectly for me. Each thing taught me more.”

I imagine in 'heaven', outside the pearly gates would be Chuck Berry n Buddy Holly larking about n' then Hendrix and Lou come in with beers.
Today's Rant: The Beatles, The question that no panel of talking heads are asking is why? Up to that point in pop Music History English acts had very little, if any success, in America. At the same time, American acts such as R&B legends as Robert Johnson, Howlin Wolf, and Muddy Waters were being worshipped by the likes of Lennon, McCartney, Jagger and Clapton. So why would these lads from Liverpool take the world by storm and particularly American teenagers like me? The short answer is "Rockabilly" music. Almost all early rockers were from the Southern United States, Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison were from Texas, so other than the acts out of Philly and the East Coast, the founders of early Rock n roll such as Elvis, Little Richard, Chuck Berry and Jerry Lee Lewis were very much from the south, and most from the deep south. You can add Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash to that list. The "hillbilly" influence in early rock was very hard to listen to, if you were from Chicago or Detroit, it just sounded stupid an ...
On behalf of the human race, thank you & Godbless you John Paul George & Ringo for your unprecedented gift of such powerfully enriching musical adventure that continues to bring immeasurable quality of life to real heart & soul music lovers everywhere. And thank you Chuck Berry, Bo Diddly, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Buddy Holly, Fats Domino and all the Motown gods & mighty Funkbrothers for inventing this music and inspiring the Beatles and the entire British Invasion. Let it be known that there simply wouldn't be the power of such soulful all American Rock-N-Roll without you guys. Happy 50th to all. I have throttled the magical R&B&R&R musical beast with you nonstop since 1953 myself and the beast roars on. Godspeed Beatles & all. Godspeed. -Ted Nugent
BLACK HISTORY FACTS AND THE BEATLES: 1) While the band from Liverpool, England was certainly influenced by the Everly Brothers (the two-part harmonies), Buddy Holly (his band was called The Crickets and they decided to have a bug-like name too), Elvis Presley, and others, they repeatedly cited Little Richard, Chuck Berry, The Isley Brothers, and Motown as major influences on their work. The famous Beatles "WOOO!" comes from both Little Richard and The Isley Brothers, which comes from the Black church. On 3 of the Beatles first 4 albums quite a few of their songs were covers of Motown artists and they even shouted out Motown as a factor in who they were on an early live BBC performance, something very rare for a White band to do in those times, established or not; 2) the first American label to sign The Beatles, when no one else was willing to do so, was Black-owned and Chicago based Vee-Jay Records; 3) when The Beatles set out on their first tour of America in 1964, after their famous appearances on "The ...
~ Historic Happenings In Music ~ February 4th: On this Day 1955, Elvis Presley played two shows (7.30pm and 9.30pm) at Jesuit High School in New Orleans, Louisiana. Hank Snow was also on the bill. 1955 - James Brown recorded "Please Please Please." 1956 - Elvis Presley appeared on "Stage Show" for the second time. He perfomred Authur Gunter's "Baby Let's Play House" and Little Richard's "Tutti Frutti." 1959 - Frankie Avalon and Jimmy Clanton took over headlining the Winter Dance Party after the death of Buddy Holly. 1961 - Johnny Burnette is rushed to Hollywood's Cedars of Lebanon Hospital to undergo an emergency appendectomy. The medical crisis forces Burnette, then on the charts with "You're Sixteen," to cancel $10,000 worth of domestic engagements and postpone a European tour. 1965, The Righteous Brothers were at No.1 on the UK Singles Chart with the Phil Spector song 'You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'. Also a US No.1 at the same time. In 1999 the PRS announced that it was the most played song of the 20t ...
Years ago, I had a discussion with a friend about this song. He said it was all about Buddy Holly. I believed it was more, I thought it had to do with the Kennedys, the Beatles, and more. Well I was right. However, I didn't know it had all these meanings. I love the internet. A very long but interesting read my friends that are over the age of 30. I only say thirty, because my son Tim loves this song. AMERICAN PIE Don Mclean wrote the song "American Pie" in 1971. What do the Lyrics mean? Verse 1 A long, long time ago... American Pie was written in 1971 and the time McLean is going to talk about is the 1950's. This seems like a long time ago 'cause of all the turmoil that occurred in the 60's. I can still remember how that music used to Make Me Smile. McLean's favorite music was that of the 50's. And I knew if I had my chance, that I could make those people dance, and maybe they'd be happy for a while. In the 50's, the major purpose of music was for dancing (sock hops). He wanted to play rock & roll so peo ...

55 years ago today, the Music died as Clark McInnis mentioned. Not a big thing to some but certainly rocked the Music World then. The three men that died were the top three in music at the time as Elvis had been drafted, Little Richard went to gospel music and Chuck Berry was arrested for soliciting a prostitute. Today, there are two monuments located where Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper died in a plane crash near Clear Lake, Iowa, on February 3, 1959. Behind the story, there were some strange and the long term affects on our world. Buddy and his group had been on a 24 day tour riding in a poorly heated bus and passengers had been swapping flu. They decided to rent a plane but it could only carry 4 people, pilot and three passengers. Waylon Jennings gave up his seat to B.P. Richardson as the "Bopper" had the flu the worst. Holly joked with Jennings "Well, I hope your ol' bus freezes up." Jennings reportedly said, "Well, I hope your ol' plane crashes." Tommy Allsup and Ritchie Valens decide ...
CALLING ALL MUSIC LOVERS !!! TONIGHT! WATCH CNN's "The Sixties: The British Invasion" ... ON CNN at 6, 7, 9 & 10 PM (PST) It isn't JUST about the Beatles! It's about how the profound wave of them and other British bands and artists, changed our Music World and also brought our 'Blues & R&B' back to us. It begins on how the Beatles were introduced to American audiences prior to “The Ed Sullivan Show.” Media sources included an in-depth CBS news report, a Beatles fan introducing them on a metro Washington, DC Top 40 radio station, and Ed Sullivan’s 1963 introduction to Beatlemania while in London. After their three Ed Sullivan TV appearances a bevy of British acts, including the Dave Clark Five, followed in their footsteps to America. The one common thread all of the British Invasion bands brought, including the Beatles, was their early rock n’ roll sounds. They were heavily influenced by Chuck Berry, the Everly Brothers, and Buddy Holly. Earlier on the Beatles and Motown was a match when they cov . ...
Chuck Berry, The Clash, Johnny Thunders, Ramones, Buddy Holly, The Doors and Love all got mangled at rehearsal tonight.No Mercy!
This is RS magazine's list of the 100 greatest artists of all time. 1. The Beatles - Makes sense. Some of the most influential albums of all time are the works of these lads. What else can you say? 2. Bob Dylan - I could argue with this one. He's a legend, but number 2? 3. Elvis Presley - Very successful, the king of rock n roll of course, but he was very controlled by his manager. 4. Rolling Stones - Often called 'Anti-Beatles', definitely top 5 5. Chuck Berry - Probably invented Rock n Roll. Deserves to be here. 6. Jimi Hendrix - First guitar god, I believe. Revolutionary player 7. James Brown - Godfather of soul, is it? Great showman 8. Little Richard - American Rock & Roll/R & B singer and pianist 9. Aretha Franklin - I think she was the first woman to be inducted into the rock n roll Hall Of Fame. I'll look that up later. 10. Ray Charles - American R&B singer and pianist 11. Bob Marley - Jamaican reggae singer 12. The Beach Boys - Some of the catchiest songs I ever heard. 13. Buddy Holly - Tragic dea ...
No band has influenced pop culture the way the Beatles have. They were one of the best things to happen in the twentieth century, let alone the Sixties. They were youth personified. They were unmatched innovators who were bigger than both Jesus and rock & roll itself: During the week of April 4, 1964, the Beatles held the first five slots on the Billboard Singles Chart; they went on to sell more than a billion records; and 2000's 1, a compilation of the Beatles Number One hits, hit Number One in 35 countries and went on to become the best-selling album of the 2000s. Every record was a shock when it came out. Compared to rabid R&B evangelists like the Rolling Stones, the Beatles arrived sounding like nothing else. They had already absorbed Buddy Holly, the Everly Brothers and Chuck Berry, but they were also writing their own songs. They made writing your own material expected, rather than exceptional. As musicians, the Beatles proved that rock & roll could embrace a limitless variety of harmonies, structur ...

This week's Song From The Box Out The Back: Our song from the Box this morning is called Little Star by the Elegants. The Elegants is an American doo *** vocal group, that was started in 1958 by Vito Picone, Arthur Venosa, Frank Tardogno, Carmen Romano and James Mochella in South Beach, Staten Island, New York. Before their nursery rhyme inspired song, "Little Star", became a Number One hit, the band usually performed informally Under The Boardwalk by their homes. "Little Star" was the only million seller for the group, and was written by Venosa and Picone. It spent 19 weeks in the Billboard Hot 100, earning gold disc status. The song reached number 25 in the UK Singles Chart in September 1958. After "Little Star" dominated the radio, the band, still in their teens, toured with artists such as Buddy Holly, Dion and the Belmonts, Chuck Berry and Jerry Lee Lewis. However, none of their subsequent singles reached the charts at all making them a prime example of one-hit wonders.
No they're not. Try Chuck Berry, Buddy Holly, Beatles, Elvis, Little Richard, The Who, All far more influential than Hendrix
Here's a few historical factoids to get you through the day... October 28th: On this day. 1893, Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky conducted his first public performance of his Symphony Number Six in B minor "Pathetique." 1948, In St. Louis, MO, Chuck Berry marries his first and only wife, Themetta "Toddy" Suggs. 1955, As part of the duo Buddy and Bob, Buddy Holly opens for Marty Robbins at a concert in Lubbock, TX. 1956 - Elvis Presley's song "Love Me Tender" became the No. 1 Billboard Pop Hit.

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 ...
Interview with Lemmy Kilmister-2-96 I have to admit it-I've been a huge Motorhead fan since 1980. Their fan club, The Motorheadbangers, inspired my nickname.I first met Lemmy on their first US tour supporting Ozzy on his first US tour in June of '81. since then, my respect for him has only increased. Unfortunately, when the interview was finished, I realized that the tape player was on pause the whole time, so I spent the rest of the night trying to remember exactly what was said. I corroborated this version with the people that were with me, and it's pretty *** close to his exact words, but by no means all he had to say...pity. This was never published in the now-defunct Color Red. Again, pity. TH:Since you have two more interviews after this one, I'll skip the history part. LK:Thank you. TH: What influenced you to start playing rock'n'roll? LK:Early rock'n'roll-Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, Little Richard. TH:What about blues. LK:Blues, sure.

Going back to the old blues..'Chuck Berry' 'Eddie Cochran'..'Buddy Holly'..
June 28th, 2013   Ask any successful band or performer how they got their start or what influenced a change in their musical direction and they're sure to credit some other band or artist. The influence musicians have on one another is openly recognized and celebrated for the innovations it inspires. No musician creates in a vacuum. Be it consciously or not, we are all part of a network of influences. A musical chain, if you will. A family tree.   Take The Beatles, for instance. They were strongly influenced by Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison who, respectively, were influenced by Elvis Presley, The Clovers, Hank Williams, and Hank Ballard. Black Sabbath name Cream as an influence who give a nod to The Yardbirds who cite the music of John Lee Hooker who names Son House who acknowledges Furry Lewis, driving Sabbath's musical roots some five levels deep. Even the great Chuck Berry, who seemingly invented a whole new approach to playing the guitar, readily cites T-Bone Walker as his prime inspirat ...

If anyone wants to put someone different up their, who would u boot?
The Rolling Stones made their U.S. television debut on June 2, 1964 -- not on the "Hollywood Palace" variety program on ABC or the "Ed Sullivan Show" on CBS or even Westinghouse Broadcasting Company's syndicated "Mike Douglas Show," but rather on a local broadcast: the "Les Crane Show," which aired at 1 a.m. on WABC-TV Channel 7, New York. Crane interviewed all five band members *** Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richards, Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts) as they prepared for their first U.S. concert tour. The 10-city tour began June 5 in the Swing Auditorium at the Orange Show Fairgrounds in San Bernardino, California. The Stones opened with their only U.S. hit at the time: their cover of Buddy Holly's "Not Fade Away." All but one of the remaining 10 songs in their set were covers of other performers' songs: Chuck Berry's "I'm Talking About You," the Beatles' "I Wanna Be Your Man," Tommy Tucker's "High-Heeled Sneakers," "Nat King Cole's" "Route 66," Rufus Thomas' "Walkin' the Dog," "Tell Me" (the only *** Ja .. ...

During that time he went into a major "wood-shedding" stage spending long nights listening and jamming to his favorites, like Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix and the Blues Kings, BB, Albert and Freddie King...and others. Jim spent a lot of time in rock n roll "boot camp", like Valley Sound on Sunset Blvd where ...
I'm more of a Buddy Holly/Chuck Berry fan cuz they wrote their own songs but c'mon son Elvis was the man.
so glad i was brought up on Jimi Hendrix, Robert Johnson, Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, Johnny Cash's music as opposed to Britney Spears

Thank you Chuck Berry, Buddy Holly, and Elvis for influencing little John Winston Lennon to pick up a guitar and learn to play.
Lemmy shows that you can play loud distorted rock and still have the largest respect for guys like Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Buddy Holly:
Chuck Berry is black jesus and Buddy Holly is white jesus
Omg this old man at Kasleys is telling me he met Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Buddy Holly, and Chuck Berry. I feel the need to believe him.
...and Blondie and Bruce Springsteen are to my children as Buddy Holly and Chuck Berry were to me :/
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.
Rock music has progressed so much in the past few decades, but it's never gotten more honest or fun than Chuck Berry and Buddy Holly.
Walkin' & rockin' Rasmus to some classic 50's acts... Platters, Drifters, Penguins, Chuck Berry, Little Anthony and the Imperials, Gene Chandler, Coasters, Del Shannon, Five Satins, Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, Chantels, and of course the untouchable Jerry Vale.
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 the heck happened to real music like this? Today's music has it all wrong!
I want Robert Johnson, Chuck Berry, Son House, Elvis, and Buddy Holly vinyls :s
Dancing around the kitchen with my little girl to the music that my daddy played when I was little sure is a great cheer up. Thanks Aretha, Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Bill Hailey, The Every Brothers, Buddy Holly, Bo Diddley, Jerry Lee, The Shirelles, and oh so, so, so many more.
As much as I love Elvis, calling him the King diminishes the contribution of Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee, Fats Domino, Little Richard,Buddy Holly
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

Happy Birthday to one of the founders of Rock n Roll, Little Richard, who turns 80 today. Little Richard would definitely be on our Mt Rushmore of RnR legends along with Chuck Berry, Buddy Holly, Elvis and.(?) Jerry Lee Lewis? Johnny Cash? Who would be on yours?
"What do Led Zeppelin, Chuck Berry, Queen, the Beach Boys, Diana Ross, the Grateful Dead, The Who, The Kinks, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Janis Joplin, Buddy Holly, The Doors, Bob Marley, and Neil Young all have in common? None of these acts have won a Grammy. Here are some more thought-provoking music-biz facts for you: 1. Ke$ha’s “TiK ToK” sold more copies than any Beatles single. 2. Rihanna has 10 No. 1 singles and six Grammy Awards. Led Zeppelin has 0 and 0. 3. Lil Wayne has charted the most Billboard Hot 100 hits (109) of any solo artist. Before Wayne, Elvis Presley held the record with 108 Hot 100 hits. But let’s remember the King’s chart successes transpired over the course of 54 years, starting in 1958 when Billboard introduced the Hot 100. 4. Flo Rida’s “Low” has sold 8 million copies in five years. The Beatles’ “Hey Jude” has sold 8 million copies as well, but it took 44 years. Has the world gone mad? I’ve had my suspicions for a while that the world is, if not completely mental, not ...
True. They always have, since Buddy Holly and Chuck Berry at least.

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 ...
Eddie Cochran Somehow, time has not accorded Eddie Cochran quite the same respect as other early rockabilly pioneers like Buddy Holly, or even Ricky Nelson or Gene Vincent. This is partially attributable to his very brief lifespan as a star: he only had a couple of big hits before dying in a car crash during a British tour in 1960. He was in the same league as the best rockabilly stars, though, with a brash, fat guitar sound that helped lay the groundwork for the power chord. He was also a good songwriter and singer, celebrating the joys of teenage life -- the parties, the music, the adolescent rebellion -- with an economic wit that bore some similarities to Chuck Berry. Cochran was more lighthearted and less ironic than Berry, though, and if his work was less consistent and not as penetrating, it was almost always exuberant. Cochran's mid-'50s beginnings in the record industry are a bit confusing. His family had moved to Southern California around 1950, and in 1955 he made his first recordings as half of ...
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 ...
Just finished up my lead vocal tracks for the band's album in 2013. We will call it "Alive Tonight" and will feature 2 originals and about a dozen vocal impressions from the big stars of the 50's and 60's like Chuck Berry, Johnny Rivers, Elvis, Johnny Cash, Conway, Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, Tommy James and others. Sounding great so far!

Rock Around the Clock Although my boys had some pretty good music in their era, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and Nirvana to name a few of the groups, they always told me that they wished they could have grown up with the music from my era. There was a time when I learned to appreciate the music from my parents era and it all started with a movie. The summer of 1973 we were all into our normal routines; swimming, baseball, bike riding and at night “riding around”. Some say that movies are more a reflection of the culture rather than a force for shaping the culture. When “American Graffiti” came out that year, there were elements that indeed reflected the culture, but there was plenty in the movie that heavily influenced all of us. It starred Ron Howard, Richard Dreyfus, Cindy Williams, and Harrison Ford among others. The music was the most impactful. The soundtrack came out in a double 8-track tape, featuring 41 songs done by the original artists. Included were Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, The Big Bopper, T ...

Today In Rock History: 1962, 12 year old Little Stevie Wonder recorded his first single for Motown Records, 'Thank You For Loving Me All The Way. 1964, All four members of US band Buddy and the Kings were killed when they hired a Cesna Skyhawk to take them to a gig in Harris County. Piloted by the bands drummer Bill Daniles, the plane crashed nose first killing all on board. Singer with the group Harold Box had replaced Buddy Holly in The Crickets after his death in a plane crash. He sang lead vocals on 'Peggy Sue Got Married. 2002, A federal judge in St. Louis dismissed a lawsuit against Chuck Berry by Johnnie Johnson, a piano player and former collaborator who wanted royalties for more than 30 songs written between 1955 and 1966. The songs in question included ‘No Particular Place To Go’, ‘Roll Over Beethoven’, and ‘Sweet Little Sixteen’. Johnson's lawsuit argued that he and Berry were co-writers on many of the songs, but because Berry copyrighted them in his name alone, Johnson got none of ...

I told her it was written in 1957 ...

*** Clark hosted American Bandstand from 1957 to 1987. Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry & Jerry Lee Lewis all got Nat'l exposure there.
RIP *** Clark 1929-2012. Great guy whom was solely responsible for making a home for Rock N Roll way back in the 50s with American Bandstand; showcasing musicians such as Little Richard, Bo Diddley, Buddy Holly & Chuck Berry to name a few. "Hail Hail Rock N Roll!"
Sad to hear about the passing of *** Clark today. He was such a perpetual teenager to me and was always tuned in to what was musically on the cutting edge. The old black and white recordings from the old studio in West Philly is always fun to see. Chuck Berry, Fats Domino, Chubby Checker, Jerry Lee Lewis, Buddy Holly, and many more got their exposure on TV because of American Bandstand. I'm glad I spent some time watching him this past New Year's Eve.
Thank You, Howlin' Sandy! The show was credited with introducing numerous artists to national audiences, including Jerry Lee Lewis, Buddy Holly and Chubby Checker. Shortly after taking over, Clark also ended the show's all-white policy, and introduced numerous black artists, such as Chuck Berry. However, Clark did not include the Beatles on his show when they came to America, thinking they would not become a significant group.[8] During the late 1950s and 1960s, Clark produced and hosted a series of concert tours around the success of "American Bandstand," which by 1959 had a national audience of 20 million.[8] The shows were among the first venues where blacks and whites performed on the same stage, and eventually the seating was likewise desegregated.[9] (Wkipedia excerpt)
Real rock and roll will always be Chuck Berry, Buddy Holly and Jerry Lee Lewis.
