Thread Name: What is Rock 'n Roll???
Subject: RE: What is Rock 'n Roll???
That's funny... I never thought of Bill Haley as too rocky... I mean, there were blues players out there laying down rock 'n roll way back into the 40's and early 50's...

One guy, Dan Pickett, a white blues player from the late 40's was ten times rockier than Bill Haley and the Comets...

Elvis??? Yeah, but he was doing old blues when he came on the scene... "Hound Dog" was old blues... "Mystery Train"... Old blues... I mean, them songs rocked out pretty good for their time...
