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.
