It is with sadness we report that TCB Band member, John Wilkinson has passed away in his home aged 67, on Friday, January 11, 2013, surrounded by family and friends, after a long battle with cancer. At the age of 10, he famously snuck into Elvis Presley's dressing room before a show at the Shrine Mosque in Springfield, telling Elvis, 'you can't play guitar worth a *** . Elvis was amused and impressed with this kid and predicted they would meet again. They did. John was born on July 3, 1945 to parents Dr. Richard and Virginia Wilkinson. He grew up in Springfield, Missouri, where he attended Greenwood Laboratory School. John was drawn to music very early. After playing in a high school band with his classmates called, 'The Coachmen', John went on to make a name for himself as a folk and country singer and guitar player. He traveled around the country playing with such groups as 'The Kingston Trio', 'The Goodtime Singers', 'Greenwood County Singers', and 'The New Christy Minstrels'. John and Elvis met again ...
ELVIS PRESLEY WAS NOT A RACIST "The only thing Negroes can do for me is buy my records and shine my shoes." Words attributed to Elvis Presley. Long-standing urban myths and rumors are often the most difficult to dispel, to be sure. And I've had my share of snickers, head shakes, eye rolls and inevitably this quote thrown at me when I've mentioned Elvis Presley's name on my list of early musical influences which include Chuck Berry, Sam Cooke, Nat King Cole, B.B. King, Otis Redding, Jimi Hendrix, Marvin Gaye and Tom Jones. The thing is, Elvis never said those words. The simple fact is they first appeared in print in April 1957 in "How Negroes Feel About Elvis," a story in Sepia magazine. The article quotes an anonymous, non-confirmed "person on the street" who said that he had HEARD that Presley had uttered those words. The rest is history. But thank goodness for the internet and the Age of Information: Elvis Presley; a racist. Quite frankly, it never made any sense to me. How could this man who owed so mu ...

THROW BACK THURSDAY: Back in 1958, I had a very popular radio show called "The Platter Party" on KOFA The Sporty 1240 in Yuma, Arizona. My show was on Monday through Friday from 6- 9 PM. I was the only DJ on the station that was playing contemporary Rock And Roll. Bob Smith, the DJ in the middle, was on in the morning (not sure what he played), and Denny Gallagher, the DJ on the right played standards from the 40's and early 50's. I would go to the Post Office every day to get stacks of promos records from the record companies with BRAND NEW ARTISTS like Elvis Presley (did he ever make it big?), Fats Domino, Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, etc, etc, etc. It was a blast. My Mother and I were living with my Uncle and his family. At that time he drove a black and green 1957 Chevy that he would let me drive on the weekends. 50's radio and a 57 Chevy. Doesn't get any better than that. I would have posted a picture of the Chevy, but I could find one with that color combo..

How Recording Studios Work Legendary recording artist Elvis Presley recorded in Memphis' Sun Studios. Phantom City Studio Orlando Florida recording studios. In 1953, a skinny 18-year-old with slicked-back hair walked into Memphis Recording Service. He wanted to make a personal recording and was looking for owner Sam Phillips. Since Phillips wasn't in, the teen talked to secretary Marion Kiesker. When she asked what style of music he played, he responded, "I don't sound like nobody." Although few people ever heard that first $4 recording, Elvis Presley turned his personal style into worldwide fame with the help of Sam Phillips and that recording studio, which became the legendary Sun Studio. The studio was also home to Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis and B.B. King [source: Rockabilly Hall of Fame]. Sun Studio may be what comes to mind when you think of recording studios, or the Beatles' Abbey Road in London -- or maybe even Chess Records in Chicago where artists such as Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry, ...

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.

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 ...
Guest dj Colin Brown profile (pictured with Tony Smith on the left).

Publicity photo of Chuck Berry | Date : September 29, 1972 | Source : Berry invented Rock And Roll in 1955. He was a black man playing black music. But times had changed: white kids were listening to rhythm and blues throughout the Northeast, and white musicians were playing rhythm and blues side to side with country music. The music industry soon understood that there was a white market for black music and social prejudice, racial barriers, could nothing against the forces of capitalism. Rock And Roll was an overnight success.   The music industry promoted white idols such as Elvis Presley, but the real heroes were the likes of Chuck Berry, who better symbolize the synergy between the performer and the audience.         The black rockers, and a few white rockers, epitomized the youth's rebellious mood, their need for a soundtrack to their dreams of anticonformism. Their impact was long lasting, but their careers were short lived. For one reason or another, they all stopped recording after a brief ti ...

September 20th, 2008: Nappy Brown died in his sleep in his hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina. He was born Napoleon Brown Goodson Culp on October 12th, 1929. Brown was the son of Kathryn Culp and Sammie Lee Brown. After his mother died he was brought up by Fred and Maggie Culp. They attended Gethsemane AME Zion Church and he attended school in Charlotte, North Carolina. He began his career singing gospel music before switching to R&B. In 1954 he won a recording contract with Savoy Records, which yielded a series of hits, including "Don't Be Angry" (R&B, pop, 1955), "Pitter Patter" (R&B, 1955), and "It Don't Hurt No More" (R&B, pop, 1958). Brown was among the biggest stars in R&B, frequently touring with the revues of Alan Freed. His songs, along with those of his peers and contemporaries (such as Little Richard, Chuck Berry, and Fats Domino), were among the first wave of African-American pop music to become noticed and popular with white audiences. Elvis Presley reportedly used to see Brown perform wh ...
Miley Cyrus is to twerking as Elvis Presley is to Chuck Berry
The king of kitsch. The prince of Rock 'n Roll (cause who are we kidding, Chuck Berry was the king): Elvis Presley.
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 ...
After working with him on the “Bad” video, Martin Scorsese commented, “I was in awe of his absolute mastery of movement on the one hand, and of the music on the other. Every step he took was absolutely precise and fluid at the same time. It was like watching quicksilver in motion.” Steven Spielberg agreed, telling Entertainment Weekly that, “Just as there will never be another Fred Astaire or Chuck Berry or Elvis Presley, there will never be anyone comparable to Michael Jackson. His talent, wonderment, and his mystery make him legend.” Jason Coleman, from the Herald Sun continues the tribute saying, “Michael has a massive influence on my career because he made dance “cool” again – especially for males. For all dancers, he set the pace, he set the scene and he set the standard.” Tributes have started all over the world. A prison in Cebu in the Philippines had a dance tribute coordinated by security consultant, Byron Garcias, where 1,500 inmates joined in a synchronized dance to the ...

Born on May 1, 1930, blues artist, Little Walter. First harmonica player to amplify his harmonica, giving it a distorted echoing sound. He died on February 15th 1968. In 1942, the American War Production Board commandeers all facilities for the production of jukeboxes, turning them over to the manufacture of war materials. In 1955, on tour with Hank Snow's All Star Jamboree, Elvis Presley played three shows at the Municipal Auditorium in New Orleans, Louisiana. Sun Records had just released Elvis' fourth single, "Baby, Let’s Play House." In 1955, Leonard Chess signs Chuck Berry to a recording contract after he came highly recommended by Muddy Waters. In 1962, the Beatles started a month long residency at The Star Club, in Hamburg, Germany. Also in 1962, Britain's first Cinebox, a device that showed 16mm color film of musicians performing their hits on a 21 inch screen, is installed in London, England. As you might expect, the device flashed paid advertising messages whenever the machine was idle. In 196 ...
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

So on the way into school I was listening to Johnny Cash and i got to thinking about the evolution of popular music. Back then it was Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley and Chuck Berry.now its Justin Bieber, Niki Minaj and ridiculously named rappers with no talent.uh...what the *** happened?
"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 ...
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 ...

"Chuck Berry, Satan, and Elvis Presley walk into a bar. Tricks! They're all the same person!" -fundamentalist circa 1955
There should be a Mount Rushmore equivalent for Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis.
Todays Music Minute Oct 18 1956, 21-year-old Elvis Presley pulled into a Memphis gas station where he started to attract a small crowd of autograph seekers. After repeatedly asking Elvis to move on so he could resume normal business, station manager Ed Hopper slapped Presley on the head and found himself on the receiving end of a punch in the face from Elvis. Station employee Aubrey Brown tried to help his boss, but was no match for Presley. After police are called, Hopper and Brown were charged with assault and were fined $25 and $15 respectively. 1966, The Jimi Hendrix Experience played their first gig as a band supporting French pop star Johnny Hallyday at the Paris Olympia in France. 1926, Born on this day, Chuck Berry, singer, songwriter and guitarist, who wrote the 1963 UK No. 6 single 'Let It Rock' plus many other classic songs.

"Promised Land" - Elvis Presley. What happens when u give a Chuck Berry tune to the King!
"If the Beatles are the construct of modern music--and I use that word "construct" incorrectly--surely they were given birth to by Elvis Presley. A giant for sure, but the product of the black experience. Ergo--and I use that word correctly--blacks created modern music! Scratch an Allman Brother, and you have black. Scratch Billy Jo-ell, and you have Howling Wolf! I could go on, but my mother is in town. Let's just say that every white Rock And Roll musician working today should take half of his or her paycheck and mail it directly to Chuck Berry. At least that's what I think. And I won't even go into jazz. " Les Nessman
Before Elvis Presley sang "Hound Dog," Big Mama Thornton had house-trained that canine. Before Bill Haley & the Comets popularized "Shake, Rattle & Roll," Big Joe Turner had done all three. The Crewcut's "Sh-Boom" was originally sung by The Chords, and The Beatles' "Roll Over Beethoven" was rocked by Chuck Berry well before the boys from Liverpool "invaded" America. It continues to be the biggest lie in the music industry - that Whites created rock `n' roll. From history books to rock-oriented cafes, from the pretentious Graceland mansion to the corner record store, White rock `n' roll artists have been immortalized and credited with creating the multibillion-dollar rock music industry. Lost is the reality that rock `n' roll was actually born out of the belly of Black blues music and raised by Black artists in the 1950s in smoke-filled clubs along Beale Street in Memphis, 47th Street in Chicago and 125th Street in Harlem and count baise hometown of red bank new jersey. Only years later, when White teenage ...

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.

I like Chuck Berry's legs better than Elvis Presley's legs
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".
