5. Sorry, I should have listened and read your post first.

 

Quite accurate. I've become edgy and watchful lately. Peace.

10. You really ought to have carried on

The program continued pointing out the racial prejudice that drove the early executives and politicians. You also should also listen to the commentary that follows "the day the music died" (about minute 52) where the condemnation of the homogenisation that followed that disaster.

BTW in condemning all white artists as uncreative you ignore Buddy Holly and Jerry Lee Lewis.

Why do you condemn all cover versions when the (white) Carl Perkins song "Blue Suede Shoes" was done in a far better cover by Presley? It is not unusual for covers to be better than the original.

11. I've got a gem of a You Tube Video for you

Buddy Holly. What a loss! Ask any of the major bands of the 1960's and they'll tell what an influence he was.

If you want to see an AMAZING rock video, go to You Tube and type in The High Numbers (The Who) "I Gotta Dance to Keep from Crying." It's VERY early footage (64-65) of them singing a Smokey Robinson song. They are so young, but SO COOL! It's a great song to boot!

14. I know all about the history of rock and roll.

I was in high school when Bill Haley and the Comets first hit the airwaves. Rock Around The Clock was the first record I ever bought. I remember when Elvis was on the Ed Sullivan Show and he was only filmed from the waist up because in the '50s. his moves were considered too obscene to be shown on TV. Yes, I am older than dirt.

16. Yep I remember it too.

A few years younger than you probably but I remember it well.
I can remember the adults being all upset at him because he was moving his hips...and naturally that made him all the more interesting to us...and we wanted to look just like him.
I lived in a small community that had one radio station that played the top 40 every Saturday that just about every kid my age listened to...and how they banned the song Yakety Yak from playing because it "sowed disrespect for parental authority"
Oh how sweet is the forbidden fruit...

18. OK

Where was the riff in the number Rock Around The Clock "borrowed from"

What was the most significant change that Haley contributed to future music.

Are you as amused as I am that the term Rock and Roll was derived from rocking and rolling most having no concept of what that slang refers to.

I'm guessing we're about the same age. Wasn't until years later I discovered Winnonie Harris - no way did that stuff hit your airwaves when the records were released.

15. Thanks for the Memories

I was a child of the '50's and '60's. What a great retrospective. The final piece with the deaths of Buddy Holly in that plane crash brought tears to my eyes.

20. didn't

die,but was stunned some. Who was it that claimed between the deaths of Holly and the others and later Stevie Ray Vaughn that the Midwest has a lot to answer for?Lots and lots of great music came after these guys.Pioneers always have it a little tougher.Glad they opened the doors.
