''Rock 'n roll is here to stay, It will never die It was meant to be that way, Though I don't know why I don't care what people say, Rock 'n roll is here to stay'' - Danny & the Juniors

93 χρόνια από τη γέννηση του μεγάλου Bill Haley

 
Γεννήθηκε στις 6 Ιουλίου του 1925 στο Μίσιγκαν και 30 χρόνια αργότερα κατάφερε μαζί με τους ‘’κομήτες του’’ να ταρακουνήσει συθέμελα τον πλανήτη. Μιλάμε φυσικά για τον μεγάλο Bill Haley ο οποίος άναψε τη σπίθα που έμελε να αλλάξει τα μουσικά δρώμενα μια για πάντα. Το τραγούδι του ‘’Rock Around The Clock’’(μέσα από την κινηματογραφική ταινία ‘’Η Ζούγκλα Του Μαυροπίνακα’’) έγινε το 1955 η πρώτη μεγάλη παγκόσμια rock n’n’ roll επιτυχία και έκανε μια ολόκληρη γενιά να χοροπηδάει στους καινούργιους ρυθμούς

. Ο Bill Haley βέβαια είχε ήδη δώσει τα διαπιστευτήρια του αρκετά πριν. Το 1951 είχε ηχογραφήσει τα ‘’Rocket 88’’ και ‘’Rock The Joint’’ και ένα χρόνο αργότερα το περίφημο ‘’Crazy Man, Crazy’’. Το 1954 γνώρισε την πρώτη του αξιοσημείωτη επιτυχία διασκευάζοντας σε πιο γρήγορο τέμπο το ‘’Shake, Ratle and Roll’’ του Big Joe Turner. Μετά το ‘’Rock Around The Clock’’ στις συναυλίες δεν έπεφτε καρφίτσα και δεν ήταν λίγες οι φορές που η αστυνομία δυσκολευόταν να ελέγξει την κατάσταση.

Το 1956 πρόσθεσε άλλη μια μεγάλη επιτυχία στο ενεργητικό του με το κλασικό ‘’See You Later Alligator’’. Αν και σταδιακά η δημοτικότητα του άρχισε να πέφτει ποτέ δεν έχασε την επαφή του με το κοινό . Έδωσε απίστευτες συναυλίες σε Ευρώπη και Νότιο Αφρική και αντιμετωπιζόταν πάντα σαν ένας από τους μεγάλους πρωτεργάτες της rock μουσικής. Χαρακτηριστικότερο παράδειγμα ήταν η συναυλία που έδωσε το 1972 στο Γουέμπλευ και η αποθέωση που γνώρισε από τον κόσμο. Έφυγε από κοντά μας στις 9 Φεβρουαρίου του 1981 από καρδιακή προσβολή.
