It’s difficult to really say when it all started but 1951 seems like one of the major consensus dates as that was the year we had our first definitive rock and roll record put out with “Rocket 88” by Jackie Brenston and the Delta Cats (which was Ike Turner’s band). There’s a bit of history and trivia for ya..
If rock and roll is near 60 years old, that means a lot of the pioneers are plenty old by now. Chuck Berry is 83! And while Chuck Berry still tours and plays and is looking pretty good for 83, let’s look at a few rock and roll celebrities and see if you can name who they are:
