Things you might not know. 16 Oct. 1. 1951: Jump-blues singer Richard Penniman, already going by the stage name Little Richard, makes his first recordings at Atlanta radio station WGST, though it would take four years and a move to clubs in New Orleans' French Quarter to turn him into a rock and roll phenomenon. 2. 1954: Elvis Presley, still stinging from his rejection at the Grand Old Opry in Nashville, joins the Shreveport, LA radio broadcast Louisiana Hayride , appearing weekly for the grand sum of eighteen dollars. The show, broadcast on local station KWKH-AM, represents Presley's first major musical exposure and would prove invaluable to getting him noticed nationally. 3. 1986: Chuck Berry is the center of an all-star "60th birthday" bash in his hometown of St. Louis, a tribute concert -- held three days before his actual 60th -- where the legendary rocker is joined by Keith Richards, Bruce Springsteen, Eric Clapton, Etta James, Robert Cray, Linda Ronstadt, and many others on stage at the local Fox T ...

Minnie Julia Riperton Rudolph (November 8, 1947 – July 12, 1979), known professionally as Minnie Riperton, was an American singer-songwriter best known for her 1975 single "Lovin' You". She was married to songwriter and music producer Richard Rudolph from 1972 until her death in 1979. They had two children: music engineer Marc Rudolph and actress/comedienne Maya Rudolph. Riperton grew up on Chicago's South Side. As a child, she studied music, drama, and dance at Chicago's Lincoln Center. In her teen years, she sang lead vocals for the Chicago-based girl group, The Gems. Her early affiliation with the legendary Chicago-based Chess Records afforded her the opportunity to sing backup for various established artists such as Etta James, Fontella Bass, Ramsey Lewis, Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, and Muddy Waters. While at Chess, Riperton also sang lead for the experimental rock/soul group Rotary Connection, from 1967 to 1971.

I liked a video Etta James - Hoochie *** Gal (with Keith Richards and Chuck Berry)
Just finished watching Chuck Berry being documented. Telling his story as he revisits people & places of his past & present leading up to headlining a live concert with Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, Etta James, Robert Craig, Julian Lennon, etc, that has left me breathless. Not to mention all the notables being interviewed over their own run-ins with him. They were as frank as he had to be. Bo Diddley, Little Richard, telling it like it is with payola, white folks, greed, sex. Jerry Lee Lewis having his say. The brawls between them. The docudrama was not pretty. As edgy as the blues. Fast as rock & roll. The real & true story behind it all. At times down right embarrassing. But a testament to a man who did not seem to lose his cool over it all. Even when he hit bottom & the bottom fell out. He in fact rose above it like a Phoenix from the ashes of his BLACK FEET to display a finesse, a charming affability, a confidence, a magnetic & shimmering glow about him I have only been able to personally see in one o ...

Greatest music themed movies of all time: 1. The Commitments (No contest, better than the next four) 2. Still Crazy (A low-budget English movie about an eighties rock band trying to recapture some of their old magic. If you have not seen it, rent it) 3.Cadillac Records (A personal favorite. The story of Chess Records and the great artists like Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry, Little Walter, Howlin Wolf, and Etta James. Great movie) 4. The Temptations (I know. Technically not a movie. Made for tv, but nevertheless great) 5. The Buddy Holly Story (It would have been hard to screw up a movie about one of this greatest rock and rollers) Let me know if you know of any I may have overlooked. Please - No Broadway shows. They mostly suck.

Chuck Berry & Etta James - Rock and Roll Music (1986): via i have always loved this version
Chess Records in Chicago was built on the music of African American blues artists (Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Little Walter, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Koko Taylor, Etta James, too many others to name here). Leonard Chess purchased the master of 'Susie-Q' assuming that Dale Hawkins was black. I have read several references quoting him saying to Dale when they first met, "You're white". To which Dale responded, "I know". If it's not a true story, it should be. Great song, and a fine artist who had more going for him than just one tune. Also one of James Burton's earliest guitar solos on record.

Jerry Wexler, Atlantic Records’ legendary producer, describes Etta James as “the greatest of all modern blues singers...the undisputed Earth Mother.” Her raw, unharnessed vocals and hot-blooded eroticism has made disciples of singers ranging from Janis Joplin to Bonnie Raitt. James’ pioneering 1950s hits - “The Wallflower” and “Good Rockin’ Daddy” - assure her place in the early history of rock and roll alongside Little Richard, Chuck Berry and Ray Charles. In the Sixties, as a soulful singer of pop and blues diva compared with the likes of Dinah Washington and Billie Holiday, James truly found her musical direction and made a lasting mark. James was born Jamesetta Hawkins in Los Angeles in 1938. Though brought up in the church, she was drawn to rhythm & blues and rock and roll, and by her midteens had formed a vocal trio that worked up an answer song to Hank Ballard’s “Work With Me Annie” entitled “Roll With Me Henry.” The trio caught the attention of bandleader Johnny Otis, w ...
ROCKY MTN. PBS PRESENTS AMERICAN MASTERS: Sister Rosetta Tharpe: THE GODMOTHER OF ROCK & ROLL . When: Friday, February 22nd Time: 9:00 p.m. Where: On your local RM PBS Channel (Channel 6 in Denver) . During the 1940s, 50s and 60s, Southern-born, Chicago-raised and New York-made Sister Rosetta Tharpe introduced the spiritual passion of her gospel music into the secular world of popular rock 'n roll, inspiring the male icons of the genre. This flamboyant African-American gospel superstar, with her spectacular virtuosity on the newly electrified guitar, was a natural-born performer and a rebel – one of the most important singer-musicians of the 20th century. She is acknowledged as a major influence not only on generations of black musicians – including Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Isaac Hayes and Etta James – but also on white stars such as Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash. .
