Rock Music History: 1958 Jerry Lee Lewis tours with Chuck Berry and others, lighting his piano on fire for song Great Balls of Fire
June 7, 1993…In Cleveland, the groundbreaking ceremony was held for the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. Chuck Berry, Sam Phillips, Pete Townshend, and Billy Joel were among those present at the ceremony. The historical day finished with a benefit concert at Cleveland Municipal Stadium. The line-up for the event consisted of legendary artist such as Chuck Berry, Bob Dylan, Al Green, Jerry Lee Lewis, Aretha Franklin, Johnny Cash, the Pretenders, John Fogerty, Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, George Clinton, the Kinks, John Mellencamp, Bruce Springsteen, Booker T. and the MGs, Eric Burdon and Martha Reeves.
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, ...

Today in R&R History: 1958-Alan Freed's Big Beat Show kicks off with Buddy Holly, Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry, Danny & the Jrs, and more.
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. The Alan Freed’s Big Beat Show also featured Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry, Frankie Lymon, The Diamonds, Billy Ford, Danny & The Juniors, The Chantels, Larry Williams, Screaming Jay Hawkins, The Pastels, Jo-Ann Campbell and Ed Townsend. On most days the acts played two shows. 1964, Madame Tussauds, London unveiled the wax works images of The Beatles, the first pop stars to be honoured. 1964, Radio Caroline started broadcasting from the former Danish ferry 'Fredericia' in the North Sea off the coast of England. 1967, Working on sessions for the new Beatles album Sgt Pepper at Abbey Road Studios in London, John Lennon recorded his lead vocal for ‘Good Morning Good Morning’, and Paul Mccartney added a lead guitar solo to the track. 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 ...
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 ...
Let's take a second to thank icons like Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry, and Elvis Presley for paving the way to modern day Rock And Roll
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 ...
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

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.
Little Richard ,Chuck Berry ,& Jerry Lee Lewis & their music do liven up our lives ! All right the 20th has its good points !
don't forget Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Fats Domino, Jerry Lee Lewis, Gene Vincent all the way back to Muddy Waters ;)
in defense of the decade: Elvis, Chuck Berry, Buddy Holly, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ray Charles, Fats Domino
Being a rock TA is pretty stellar. I got to spend my morning blasting Chuck Berry, Buddy Holly, and Jerry Lee Lewis.
Fun night at Sebastiani's. Strange crowd at times. Most of the time people just enjoyed the music. Other times certain groups felt the need to come up say, "Can't you guys play something that we could actually dance to? You know like Chuck Berry or Jerry Lee Lewis?" We even had a request for Gloria Estefan and the Miami Sound Machine. *** The band got a little pissy and started causing trouble. Some guy who looked liked like Wilfred Brimley started singing during our songs with four or five geriatric pelvic thrusters prompting Jed to say in the middle of "Burning Sea", "it is like Cocoon out there." Thing went too far when they started demanding "Great Balls of Fire". Trent was too irritated to talk so Jimmy jumped in to explain.very loudly. for the 100th time that WE ARE AN ORIGINAL ROCK BAND. One of the elderly ladies tried to make her point by pinching Jimmy's cheek. Jimmy crotch punched her. After that, the crowd fell in line and the rest of the show was a blast. Needless to say, Ji ...

Tandy Gonce, Trevor Rogers As you know ... I grew up in Corpus Christi Texas, a lovely town in the tip of south Texas on the gulf coast. Life was easy back then. I have always been very interested in music. Somehow from an early age (five or six), I started listening to popular music on the radio. I loved the songs from the 1930 and 1940s (The Great American Songbook Era), and still love new jazz versions of these great tunes. The big band era was before my-time, but I loved the sound. In addition, I liked country and western music. Recently, I was saddened to hear that George Jones died. I loved his music. I loved rhythm and blues back when B.B. King was hollering (I still love BB). I loved Big Joe Turner though my junior high years. A few years later, I loved Elvis, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis and all the founders of Rock And Roll. And, Oh yea, the one and only Chuck Berry. And the one and only Ray Charles! When I go back and listen to many of the Ray Charles songs, I realize what huge influence h . ...
Well, I just finished watching Crosby, Stills and Nash concert in 2012 on AXS TV. I come to the conclusion that not all rockers from the 60s and 70s age well. Yes, the Stones, Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis and so many others aged well as the black Blues men. But there was something disturbing watching CS&N. The intro was "Carry On" and the first 12 chords were laborious, as if they were looking for something and they ended each chorus with an unpleasant half-note. Eventually they "carried on" and the song picked up with some of the energy of their "4 Way Street" album, but it never completely got to the level of energy and melodies of the original version, studio and live. "Long Time Gone" from Crosby was also laborious and sadly felt outdated. The whole concert was a reprise of their early catalogue but then it became weird. A "Guinevere" that lasted 18 minutes or so became unbearable after 4 minutes. Same with "Our House", a 15 minutes version that just went on and on and on...Steven Stills looks weird w ...

Last year I posted Dave Bartholomew’s cover version, now here’s the original. Hard Times was the biggest hit from tenor saxophonist Noble "Thin Man" Watts & His Rhythm Sparks. In 1957 it climbed into the pop charts for 9 weeks, peaking at They even got to play it on *** Clark's American Bandstand. Watts was a hot honker in the ‘50s and early ‘60s, playing with a who’s who of R&B and early rock’n’roll; Tiny Bradshaw, Amos Milburn, Ruth Brown, Jerry Lee Lewis, Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, the list goes on and on.
Jerry Lee Lewis was so crazy, he lit Chuck Berry's piano on fire & backstage told him "Follow that *** "
"I once was at a concert where Chuck Berry, Johnny Guitar Watson and Jerry Lee Lewis were playing (in that order)."
Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, n the Big Bopper are some of my favorite oldies singers.
CM Punk's piledriver was like Jerry Lee Lewis lighting his piano on fire to outshine Chuck Berry. "Follow That."
I was born at the end of 1955. Out of a lack of anything better to do today I'm trying to come up with an ever shrinking list of celebrities who were household names then who are still alive today. So far I have Sidney Poitier, Mickey Rooney, Doris Day, Lauren Bacall, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Fats Domino, Jerry Lee Lewis, Sid Caesar and Carl Reiner. Anyone have any more names to add?
Audiobook for the night: Soul Music. Had Chuck Berry and Jerry Lee Lewis stuck in my head all day, lol.
What would become one of the most famous tours in music history took place in the middle of winter of 1959 in the Midwest. I have been fascinated with this story for as long I can remember, and want to retell it as best I know how on the anniversary of the day the music died. A lot of things happened in 1959 that are of interest in music history. Elvis joined the army. Jerry Lee Lewis got in trouble for marrying his 13 year old cousin. Chuck Berry would begin a prison sentence. Twenty -two year old Buddy Holley's career had hit a dry spell. Because he had been swindled out of his royalties by his manager, Buddy was broke. At only 17, Ritchie Valens was just beginning his career. Jiles Perry "The Big Bopper" Richardson had been a radio DJ. In early 1959, he had only charted one big hit--we all know it--"Chantilly Lace". The fateful tour started on January 23, 1959, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. There was a show in a different city every single day. Buddy, Ritchie and the Big Bopper performed along with Dion a . ...
I've heard a story about Jerry Lee Lewis & Chuck Berry nailing SJH into a coffin at one gig (could well be apocrypha).

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

"Hail! Hail! Rock 'n' Roll is a 1987 documentary film directed by Taylor Hackford that chronicles two 1986 concerts celebrating Rock And Roll musician Chuck Berry's 60th birthday. A soundtrack album was released in October 1987 on the MCA label. The two concerts were held on October 16, 1986, at the Fox Theatre in St. Louis; among the artists performing with Berry were Eric Clapton, Robert Cray, Etta James, Johnnie Johnson, Steve Jordan, Bobby Keys, Julian Lennon, Keith Richards, Linda Ronstadt and Joey Spampinato. Along with concert footage, the film also features scenes from the rehearsals for the shows, interviews with Berry and members of his family, and "talking-head"-type appearances from a number of musicians, including Bo Diddley, The Everly Brothers, John Lennon (archival footage), Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison, Little Richard and Bruce Springsteen."
Whatever Oasis did - and they did it very well - it was not rock'n'roll. The real thing sounds like Jerry Lee Lewis 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".

*** Clark hosted American Bandstand from 1957 to 1987. Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry & Jerry Lee Lewis all got Nat'l exposure there.
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. 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. The shows were among the first venues where blacks and whites performed on the same stage, and eventually the seating was likewise desegregated. (Wkipedia excerpt)
"American Bandstand's" formula was simple. Clean-cut boys and girls danced to the hottest hits and the newest singles. In between, Clark chatted with the teens, who helped "rate-a-record," turning songs into sensations. Everyone showed up on "American Bandstand," from Elvis Presley to Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry to Chubby Checker.
Back then, I, most rockers loved Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis... you know in the '60s.
