Ok OLD Goldwing riders, yes that's us.

FACT:

The first real pioneer (not the KING) of early roll and roll was
"Bill Haley and the Comets"

Agree or no?
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

P.S. Also, can you guess the #1 song most heard, play and sung world wide for dam-near before our time?
(Hint: It's not a Christmas song)

I'll post the answer later.........Good Luck

OK, I'm not old enough for that. Buddy Holley is as old as I go. Nice info though...

So, bringing it toward my generation, who coined the phrase "Heavy Metal"?
