The Founders: Bill Haley & The Comets

April 16, 2015

Besides the British Invasion-Era – I am now working on my rock and roll “Founders” section kicking things off with Bill Haley and the Comets.

Much has been written of Bill’s contribution to rock and roll – He has his detractors but I suspect they haven’t really dug nearly deep enough into his life.  I came across “Sound and Glory” the biography of Bill Haley by his son John W. Haley and John von Hoelle.  For my money – Bill is right there with Chuck Berry – the true Godfathers of Rock and Roll.

Visit the Bill Haley Founder Page which is still under construction and then guess who will be next!

  1. As soon as we heard Bill Haley’s ‘Shake Rattle and Roll’ my mates and I in the RAF back in ’54 were sold. We would tune in to AFN from Germany as all the latest discs from the US were played on programmes such as ‘The March of Dimes’. Great Days.
