Alright, now we get to some real kickass Rock & Roll!
Wailing saxes, guitars, drums, shouting vocals- OUR ROOTS!
With Cousin Brucie Morrow breathing down my neck, I felt it was only right.
He has the nerve to take my place on September 2nd, lol?
Only for one show though.
You know, most so-called Oldies stations only go back to 1964-65, as if nothing had happened before that.
That’s nonsense! There were a good 10 years of primitive, high energy R&R that in its exuberant abandon alone is worth a listen.
Before I begin with the music, I have something I want to read to you, to give you a feel for the anti-rock attitude of those early days.
Then listen to some GENIUS go off on a tirade.
Wonder what the hell ever happened to him?
We KNOW what happened with our music.
And drawing a parallel with the 60’s hippie protest generation, those 50’s kids also used hair and clothes to make their statement!
So, I will play a 1950’s Fashion Statement set- and it rocks!
This is a good chapter, and I was enjoying myself more and more.
Hope you will too.
