Rock and Roll Turns 60


It is the 60th anniversary of the release of what many consider to be the first rock & roll song.  Jackie Brenston’s “Rocket 88” performed by Ike Turner.  I did not know this.  Ike of course went on to become Tina Turner’s nemesis and contributed some great songs to rock’s legacy.  I could not find a live version so what is attached is as good as I can get.

About John

I enjoy travel, sports, music and anything else that jumps up at me for the moment, which is why I blog. There will be lots of music and travel posts and a smattering of sports and humour. I enjoy promoting Canada and am unabashedly a proud Canuck.
