Rock ‘N’ Rollin’ Bill Haley Part Seven

Rock ‘N’ Rollin’ Bill Haley Part Seven, is the longest and last for awhile, for Bill Haley

The Comets

More than 100 musicians performed with Bill Haley & His Comets between 1952 and Haley’s death in 1981, many becoming fan favorites along the way. Several short-lived Comets reunions were attempted in the 1970s and 1980s, including one contingent (organized by Baltimore-based piano player Joey Welz, who played piano for the Comets from 1962 to 1965) that appeared on The Tomorrow Show, and another run by an Elvis Presley impersonator, Joey Rand (this group later lost a legal action over the right to use the Comets name)...

At the time I was in my teens. I thought Bill Haley was better than Elvis Presley, but how many times can you write songs with the word Rock in it and still be enjoyable ??? I moved on, to other bands and solo performers, it’s only recently(like seventeen years), that I started to like the 1950’s again, and BillHaley was the first one that I had to buy his CD’s (vinyls were long gone), so when I had a chance to have a website< I was wondering how to put Bill Haley in it, and now you know(I got my website for The Beatles, but I haven’t gotten to my favorite decade yet), Rock ‘N’ Rollin’ Bill Haley Part Five won’t be the last one (thank you YouTube), for I found another album...
