Music News ! Paul Mccartney calls study courses focusing on The Beatles 'ridiculous yet flattering' ! Paul Mccartney has dubbed Popular Music study courses with a focus on The Beatles as "ridiculous, and yet very flattering". Taking part in a Q&A via his official website, the 72-year-old was responding to a query from a student studying for an MA in Popular Music that asked how he felt about the existence of such courses. "For me it's ridiculous, and yet very flattering," responded McCartney. "Ridiculous because we [The Beatles] never studied anything, we just loved our Popular Music: Elvis, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Fats Domino, etc. And it wasn’t a case of 'studying' it. I think for us, we'd have felt it would have ruined it to study it. "We wanted to make our own minds up just by listening to it. So our study was listening. But to be told – as I was years ago now – that The Beatles were in my kid's history books? That was like 'What?! Unbelievable, man!' Can you imagine when we were at school, ...

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 ...

In answer to a question during a 1977 interview, when asked about who Michael Jackson admired growing up, he said: “I had those that I admired, like James Brown, a man that today doesn’t get the credit he should get from the music industry. Look what he did to music: all these funky tracks that you hear today, that’s where it came from. Sly Stone, James Brown, these are people that started funky music. They stood between the gospelly soul and the dance music. And that’s funk: Sly, James Brown, and people like that. Wilson Pickett, Otis Redding. And of course in Rock And Roll there’s Little Richard and Chuck Berry and all those guys. That’s who I would always watch. And Jackie Wilson!”

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..
I was watching HBO's Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction ceremony the other night, so I started counting all of the Hall Of Fame performers I have seen. In all, I have seen 27 HOF acts, including The Who, Police, the Rolling Stones, Simon and Garfunkel, Billy Joel, Rod Stewart, Ricky Nelson, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, The Beach Boys, Bob Dylan, the Four Seasons, The Everly Brothers, The Jackson 5, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Blondie, Heart and Smokey Robinson. I can't believe though that legendary singers like Bette Midler, Barbra Streisand, the Three Dog Night, Gloria Estefan, Peter, Paul & Mary, John Denver, Johnny Rivers, Johnny Mathis, Connie Francis, Chicago, Dionne Warwick, Lionel Richie, The Carpenters, Jim Croce, Helen Reddy, Kenny Rogers and Olivia Newton-John are not in the Rock Hall Of Fame. There is a heavy bias against women in the HOF.
Frankie Valli: The Voice That Defined a Generation? Well, not any generation of humans here on earth. My folks were from that generation and LOVED doo *** and Little Richard, Chuck Berry & Elvis. They HATED Frankie Valli. Because they had taste.

We were *** lucky to have grown up with all these great talents, feel sorry for todays' kids who have such mediocre music and non descript artists to listen to.
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 ...
“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.

Each thing taught me more.”

# This is RS magazine's list of the 20 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. # 1 ...
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 ...
Guest dj Colin Brown profile (pictured with Tony Smith on the left). My Music Education started at a very early age.My Mother loved having the Radio so she could hear music ,when she did her "Chores".When the Radio was off Mum would put her Records on-The Ink Spots,The Platters,Harry Belafonte,Paul Robeson and others.She loved the harmonising voices and it was through that I began listening to them carefully.On the TV you had Cy Grant on B.B.C`s "Tonight" Programme,singing about Current Affairs in a Calypso Style.It was beautiful.My eldest Sister would join in by playing her 78s.I really liked Little Richard,Chuck Berry,Fats Domino as well as Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis.As the 50s came to a close,my Sister`s tastes changed to the Drifters(with Ben E.King on Lead).These were good times. In 1964 I went with my School to Carnaby Street(it was really a trip to the West End,but we ended up there).The place was buzzing.I was intriqued by the "Boutiques" that lined the Street,and everybody rushing about-w ...
~ 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 ...
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 ...

Lately I can't get enough of Chuck Berry, Little Richard, & Eddie Cochran.
TRAIN SONGS AND DESPITE IT ALL BLUES : I was born in March of 1961 and the events that came from this day 50 years ago I honestly remember to be my first memories. I know I've spent a lifetime processing the events that happened in the sixties and I don't relate to much of how it has been presented. Chuck Berry, Carl Perkins, Fats Domino, Little Richard that Rock And Roll sound that came out of Sun Studio ... yeah I relate to that. The stories of the early rock and blues tunes are like fables to me. One of my favorites is Poor Jenny by the Everly Brothers which was written by Felice and Boudleaux Bryant. I took my little Jenny to a party last night At ten o'clock it ended in a heck of a fight When someone hit my Jenny she went out like a light Poor Jenny And then some joker went and called the cops on the phone And everybody scattered out to places unknown I couldn't carry Jenny so I left her alone Poor Jenny Well it seems a shame that Jenny had to go get apprehended A heck of a fate The party was the ...
No they're not. Try Chuck Berry, Buddy Holly, Beatles, Elvis, Little Richard, The Who, All far more influential than Hendrix
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. Jimmy Reed, stuff nobody nowadays remembers or has ever heard of ...

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 ...
With a few exceptions (Chuck Berry, Little Richard, early Elvis etc) pop music before 1962 was really awful. All changed with 'Love Me Do'
Little Richard just announced his retirement, after 60 years of rock & roll. (Chuck Berry is still rockin at 86.)

*LET'S GET REAL* I am not confused but AMAZED. The AFRICAN DIASPORA SPANS the Globe from Africa as far EAST as India and as far West as Brazil and the TOTAL CARIBBEAN.Even out to the Pacific Islands (although that is still being debated DESPITE FORENSIC SCIENCE...I'm not having that argument). I grew up in the 70's, when "black" was relative and AFROCENTRIC was more apropos... I grew up listening to ALL DIASPORAL MUSIC...Reggae, Salsa, Mambo (The word "mambo" means "conversation with the gods" in Kikongo, the language spoken by Central African slaves taken to Cuba for those who do not know)... Samba (Brazilian dance and musical genre originating in Bahia, Brazil, and with its roots in Rio de Janeiro and Africa via the West African slave trade and African religious traditions)... Soka (the fusing of calypso and elements of Indo-Caribbean music) then of course Calypso; as well as Soul, Jazz, Blues, Rock & Roll (ya'll forgot who founded that genre didn't you - Chuck Berry, Ike Turner, Little Richard etc...lm ...
Man I was just thinking about all the great musicians and their addictions. Charlie Wilson - Crack R.Kelly - little girls Michael Jackson- little boys Little Richard - men Chuck Berry - white women James Brown - drugs/power over women Prince- Beautiful women Did I miss anyone?
I love 50s music! Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, and Carl Perkins is my preferred Elvis! Also like Muddy Waters!
Also Fats Domino, Little Richard & Chuck Berry all on in 1 night at Sheffield Arena, great gig.
8 more to go for the 100. Now playing The Ramones. Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, Chuck Berry and Carl Perkins to come.
Watching “kings of rock n roll” on TV… Elvis Presley, Little Richard, Chuck Berry, The Beatles… What an era in music. Incredible.
Without Chuck Berry, Little Richard, and especially Ike Turner & The Kings Of Rhythm, there would have been NO Rock And Roll. THUMBS UP if you agree that nobody had a backbeat "groove" in the mid-late 50's like Chuck Berry.
"James Brown, Ray Charles, Jackie Wilson, Chuck Berry and Little Richard - I think they had strong influences on a...
Lemmy shows that you can play loud distorted rock and still have the largest respect for guys like Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Buddy Holly:
Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, n the Big Bopper are some of my favorite oldies singers.
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 ...
Big Joe Turner, Chuck Berry and Little Richard beg to differ.
As a mixture of blues, jazz and gospel, R&B began to catch on in several cities. By combining blues and jazz, the bands would usually have an electric guitar backed by a piano and a saxophone. Marketed towards black audiences, the earliest R&B hit maker was Louis Jordan who had a string of hits in the late 1940s. Following Jordan was Paul Williams, whose hit “The Hucklebuck” predated the sort of rave ups that would become commonplace in the ‘50s and ‘60s. His live show was a raucous event that would inspire later audiences such as James Brown and Otis Redding. The 1950s saw a string of R & B artists take the sound and expand it. Little Richard, Fats Domino, and Chuck Berry created not only the foundation for the Soul Music of the ‘60s they also became the prototypes for the rock ‘n’ roll movement. Little Richard was especially important to not only the sound of R & B but to the flamboyant stage shows that would late be taken to its apex with artists like David Bowie and *** Jagger. These so ...
people pull up listening to 2 chainz im bumpin to Tracey Chapman, Little Richard, Paul Williams, Chuck Berry, Roger Daltrey.. makes 0 sense
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?
Got me some Chuck Berry, Bob Dylan, Ella Fitzgerald, and Little Richard cd's along with Glen Hansard, The Fray, and Noah and the Whale.

It's black history month. Someone should do a tribute to all the black rockers in history. Sure. poets, politicians, freedom fighters, literary giants, inventors, scientists, doctors, etc. are VERY important to highlight. but what about the rockers? The ones who DARED to claim their spot by crossing over into the rock world? (they never crossed over. if you ask me) Got any history making favorites other than the obvious: Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley, Prince, Living Colour, Slash, Lenny Kravitz, Phil Lynot, Tina Turner, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Ben Harper, Bad Brains. (it's Monday & my brain hasn't woke up yet.)
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'm dumbfounded that Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard and Chuck Berry are all still alive.
CARMA, Inc. (Chicks Advocating Regional Music and Artists) is answering a call for help from a local Spartanburg legend, Joe Bennett, of “Joe Bennett and the Sparkletones” fame. We are putting together a 50s-60s Rockabilly show and auction to benefit and honor Joe Bennett. We hope to host the show in late February or in March.JOE’S HISTORY: From Cowpens High School in South Carolina, where the Sparkletones first formed in 1956, to Spartanburg Memorial Auditorium where they were discovered by a CBS talent scout, to New York City and a record deal with ABC/Paramount, to the Ed Sullivan and Nat King Cole Shows, American Bandstand, and criss-crossing the U.S. in an old DeSoto playing nightly on the 1950’s Rock And Roll circuit with Little Richard, Chuck Berry, and others even including Elvis; the boys (then 14-17 years old) had achieved national recognition and had several Billboard chart singles including Joe’s, “Black Slacks”, and “Bobby Socks and Penny Loafers”. DIAGNOSIS: Most recently, ...
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
So yeah, there you go. Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Phil and Don Everly. Taught the Beatles, the Stones, and the Who a lot.
Courses We Love: The History of Rock with John Cooper We were just the spokesmen for a generation" A social history of Rock And Roll, from it's origination in the Blues, through the Rhythm and Blues of the 50's, into the era of Little Richard, Chuck Berry, and Elvis. From the British invasion to Heavy Metal, rap, and even Dylan and other poets like him that couldn't sing either. We've got it covered. You will listen to it, you will read about it, you will watch it happen on videos (no BeeGees or Tony Orlando)...we will connect it to the times.and what turbulent times they were. If you are interested in what happened culturally in this country between 1950 and today, you need not look any farther than this course. For "the music of the people", ROCK, accurately reflects the varying peaks and valleys of much of the events of the past half century.
Rock And Roll was, apparently, dead by the end of the '60s. So much so that legendary performers like John Lennon, Alice Cooper, The Doors, Chuck Berry, and Little Richard needed a special benefit concert to boost its fortunes. Enter "Rock And Roll Revival," a special one-day concert held at...
She graduated '57 so had all the greats: Bill Haley, Chuck Berry, Little Richard...(not allowed Elvis)
I guess you can make an argument for Little Richard, Elvis, Bill Haley, but you can't go wrong with Chuck Berry

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?
Happy December 5th! Here's what happened on this day in history: 1956: Alan Freed's film Rock Rock Rock, starring Chuck Berry, the Flamingos, Frankie Lymon, LaVern Baker, and Johnny Burnette, is released. 1960: Etta James reaches Number 34 with "My Dearest Darling." 1964: The Zombies reach Number Four with “She's Not There,” which will move into the Number Two spot the next week. 1968: Graham Nash quits the Hollies. He announces the formation of Crosby, Stills and Nash three days later. 1992: Ice Cube is at Number One with The Predator. Born: Little Richard, 1932; J.J.

On this day, 1995, Legendary manager of Led Zeppelin Peter Grant died from a heart attack aged 60. Known as being one of the shrewdest and most ruthless managers in rock history, Grant secured 90% of concert gate money and intimidated record store owners who dealt in bootlegs. The former wrestler, also worked as a film extra and bodyguard. During the early 60’s Grant worked as a tour manager for Bo Diddley, The Everly Brothers, Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent and The Animals.
People get angry with me when I say what I see .. like Die Antwoord is that only white people can really make money from black or so-called coloured culture or creations ... (1) Afrikaans created by Khoi, San, Slaves & Basters and is not the language of the Afrikaners who stole it to create a nation ... imagine how much money that theft created (2) Afrikaaps en Rymeklets performed by Prophets of Da City globally, yet Die Antwoord made more money even though he does not really speak Afrikaans nor is a gang member to get those chappies (4) Johnny Clegg sings in Zulu and makes millions from Zulu music, yet is not Zulu (He is an amazing artist though, but why cant Zulu Artists sell directly to whites without him. (4) It took Paul Simon for the world to get to hear Ladysmith Black Mambazo (5) Rock n Roll created by black people and their king is Elvis ours is Chuck Berry and Little Richard (6) Rap created by black people and the biggest selling artist ever is Eminem (7) surfing was a central part of ancient Po ...
Putting together my music list. Not only is white music not appealing to me, but where are my future soul brothers. There was a time where Jackie Wilson, Tony Williams (Platters), Bobby Womack, Marvin Gaye, Barry White, Chuck Berry and Little Richard ruled music. in a great way!
I'd love to meet Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis and Chuck Berry..the last surviving ORIGINAL Rockers
Want to hear some more of my drivel? Daddy worked at the Andrew Jackson Hotel in Nashville. People often left things in their rooms and if Daddy could cadge them, he would bring them home to us. One time he hit a treasure trove. Came home with beau coups of "race records". Laverne Baker, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Little Richard, Fats Domino. Woo Hoo! Played them at our little neighborhood "dance parties". As I recall, the group consisted of the Witt boys, Johnson kids, us and the kids who came and went on "renter's row". Mama would serve snacks and one time she served apple cider that had turned into Apple Jack (unbenownst to her), since I hated cider, I wasn't affected. But some of the teenage and pre-teenage attendees were. Memories. A pleasant place to visit now and then.
"Elvis, Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Gene Vincent: all seemed to speak directly to adolescents in a code that only they could understand"
There should be a Mount Rushmore equivalent for Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis.
A big Happy Birthday to my oldest brother, Lester! When I was growing up he bought me my first bicycle and lots of other cool things. He also turned me on to rock'n'roll (Elvis, Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Gene Vincent...)!

Random reminiscing " Sat Mornings" I was allowed as an 8 year old to play my own records as loud as I wanted ( Mom was at the Salon Dad was at work on Overtime ) Sun shinning in, just me and my records and Mom's HI FI .first single I wanna hold your hand Beatles then First Album The Partridge Family?

I was hooked! To SOUL and ROCK n ROLL more so the Blues!
Happy 83rd Bearthday to The Timeless Spirit of The Great Vocalist/Master Blues Composer, Nappy Brown! ... Let me tell ya' a lil' short story 'bout Nappy Brown.

He could write some songs... even 'bout a pencil fallin' on the floor. ... Jackie Wilson Said, "Ol' Nappy *** near wrote a song every day!" ... He was a Blues recording artist for Savoy Records.

Whiskey Howl, Bo Diddley, Chicago, Junior Walker and the All Stars, Tony Joe White, Alice Cooper, Chuck Berry, Cat Mother and the All Night News Boys, Jerry Lee Lewis, Gene Vincent, Little Richard, Doug Kershaw, The Doors and John Lennon and The Plastic Ono Band. September 13, 1969 A great concert and then off to the Bod Pod in Yorkville afterwards. Was it Satan's Choice or the Vagabonds that escorted Jim Morrison to the stage?
I was watching Chuck Berry on T.V. tonight. Also on the show were Keith Richards, the lead guitar of the Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Little Richard, Carl Perkins, etc. Now Chuck was talking about how his songs were often covered by white singers and he was critical of their performances. Little Richard was particularly critical of the way Pat Boone covered songs like Tutti Frutti and Long Tall Sally. He felt that Pat and other white singers sanitized the songs, which made the songs more acceptable to the parents of the white kids. Now the exception to sanitizing the music and making it more gentle were groups like the Beatles and Rolling Stones, who covered Little Richard’s and Chuck’s stuff and played it just as raw and good as they did. Now the white kids would go out and buy the rough and rock on versions of the music of these black artist as well as the sanitized versions of the white artist and when they got home they would hide the records of the black artist from their parents and played th ...
Ever think of something ironic? How many rock stars have died over the years, how is it that pioneers like Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Fats Domino and Chuck Berry are still alive?

"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."
Its wired i like real music like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Billy Preston, Mozart, Beethoveen, Buddy Holly, Simon and Garfunkle, CCR, Little Richard,, and the king of them all Chuck Berry, but i don't like Elvis i don't know why a just absolutely hate Elvis
You can't make real rock music in any shape or form without being deeply conscious of David Bowie. He's as essential as Chuck Berry & Little Richard.
I suppose there could be people who don't dig Chuck Berry or Little Richard, but I refuse to consciously admit they exist.
Little Richard and Chuck Berry. That would be awesome.
Off to Cleveland & Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. Will have Chuck Berry & Little Richard as appropriate driving music

Had a dream that I was in a movie theater with Chuck Berry, Screamin Jay Hawkins, Esquerita and Little Richard. They were arguing about stuff and we were about to watch Django Unchained.
Chuck Berry, Little Richard AND Bo Diddley? This is even crazier than the last one!
Joe Strummer has played it. Little Richard too. Oh yeah and Chuck Berry and Jerry Lee Lewis. Wanda Jackson!!! So...
Just dug through a couple of boxes of 45's down at classics, came out with two Freddy King , a Harmonica Fats and a Lightning Hopkins, amongst a handful of Little Richard and Chuck Berry singles. Thanks Cory for the score.
Loving today's revision playlist. Lots of Chuck Berry, Fats, Little Richard, Jerry Lewis, Eddie Cochran and James Brown!
I heard of him. But talk to me about Elvis, about Bill Haley & the Comets; about Little Richard and Chuck Berry!
Received one of my Amazon purchases today which includes the following albums: "Here's Little Richard" (I unknowingly bought the newly remastered release which literally came out last week), Chuck Berry's "The Great Twenty-Eight", James Brown's "Live at the Apollo" and "In the Jungle Groove", Van Morrison's "Astral Weeks", Robert Johnson's "The Complete Recordings" box set, Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On", and Stevie Wonder's three masterpieces "Talking Book", "Innervisions", and "Songs in the Key of Life". I'm expecting some more stuff this weekend. My music collection has just expanded quite a bit.
