Happy 69th birthday to JACK SCOTT, the first Canadian rock 'n' roll star.
Edited on Fri Jan-28-05 07:51 PM by NightTrain
Jack Scott was born Jack Scafone in Windsor, Ontario, Canada on January 28, 1936. He and his family moved to Hazel Park, Michigan ten years later. Scott first recorded for ABC-Paramount in 1957 and later moved on to the Carlton label, where he waxed such classics as "Two Timin' Woman," "Leroy," "My True Love," "Goodbye Baby," and "The Way I Walk." In 1960, Scott changed labels again, this time to Top Rank, for whom he immediately delivered the back-to-back Top 5 smashes, "What in the World's Come Over You?" and "Burning Bridges."

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JACK! :party: :bounce: :toast: :yourock:

1. Was he before or after the Diamonds?

(of Li'l Darlin' fame)

And what about Paul Anka?

ON EDIT: I do believe the Cramps covered "The Way I Walk".

2. The Diamonds were a worthless "cover" group, and Paul Anka...
...was a piece-of-shit teen idol. Jack Scott, on the other hand, could FUCKING ROCK!!! :headbang:

3. That may be, but that's not what I asked.
;)

Just curious about the paltry history of Canadian pop music in the fifties.

4. Hey, you learn something new every day...
I didn't know Canadian rock existed before the Guess Who. Or the Buffalo Springfield, which ever came first.
