Bill Hayley & The Comets – Rock Around The Clock | LISTEN | This new American music nearly set off riots when it played in UK cinemas back in the day. Seats ripped out, young people dancing wildly everywhere…we all wanted to be in a rock and roll band!

Elvis Presley – Jailhouse Rock | LISTEN | Everyone went wild for this young kid from Memphis. He never toured the UK where I grew up but he had the biggest fan club there. I still to this day break out with some of the songs he made so popular.

Buddy Holly – Crying, Waiting, Hoping | LISTEN | This bespectacled singer with the big blonde Hofner acoustic guitar and the sweetest harmonizing voice made me want go out and buy a guitar and form a band, which I did.

  1. The Good Old Days when artists had real talent and were willing to work hard. No miming or hype then just the real deal. I wish they could come back but they can’t. Great memories though.
