Thread Name: What is Rock 'n Roll???
Subject: RE: What is Rock 'n Roll???
Then your friends hadn't heard She Won't Be My Baby No More-Carlisle Brothers 1946, or the Delmore Brothers.
Bill Haley and company were about the first white rock'n'roll to become teen idols-but that isn't the same as being the first to play the music.
PDQ(and anyone else who is having fun with this)--if you don't have it already, download "Spotify", and register (it's free)--it's an online jukebox program which allows you to listen to songs, albums, and playlists from others. Then search for "Dave Bartholomew" or "The Treniers" or "Amos Milburn" or "Big Jay McNealy", and rock til you drop.
