Subject: RE: What is Rock 'n Roll???
I was doing a little more research on the Boogie Woogie craze, especially the Hillbilly Boogie angle, and I noticed something about a major player.

Porky Freeman, who designed and patented his own electric pickup, around 1940, before Leo Fender, is still with us. His lead guitar licks still sound fresh today.

He is 96 and let's his health is good.
