Historical Facts of the Pioneers of Rock and Roll
From the first performer to the last, each of these stars has been a giant at the height of their careers. From a sex goddess to a teen idol. From a time that Rock and Roll was not acceptable, to today where almost anything is accepted. The total number of hits by these stars is staggering. They total over 200 Gold Records, and over 500 charted songs. The combined record sales of these PIONEERS exceed one billion!
The type of songs range from the teen sad songs like "Patches" by Dickey Lee in 1961, "Tell Laura I Love Her" by Ray Peterson in 1960, to hard guitar instrumentals from Lonnie Mack and soft strokes of Al Casey. From the ballads of Jack Scott to the stirring ballad by Tommy Dee, "The Three Stars", a tribute to Buddy Holly, The Big Bopper and Richie Valens to "Monster Mash" by Bobby "BORIS" Pickett. Every year at Halloween you will hear that seasonal song played on the radio.
The female artists that are lined up for the show vary in style as much as their male counterparts. The top female singer of this Rock & Roll extravaganza is the one and only Sue Thompson. Sue has five gold records to her credits. She ranks as the number three female artist of the 60's era. Only Brenda Lee and Connie Francis sold more records than the lady with little girl's voice.
Each and every performer has their own unique style of music. They range from soft ballads to hard-core Rock and Roll. Performers such as Jack Scott, Dickey Lee and Paul Evans have written their own hits. They have also penned hits for other artists such as Elvis Presley, Connie Francis, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Stray Cats, Tom Jones, Robert Gordon, Bette Midler and many, many others. These oldies stars will give a performance that fans worldwide will not forgot for many years to come.
