    Default The King of Rock and Roll


    IYO, who is the King.
    Elvis is called the King, but is he?
    Little Richard, or Chuck Berry or Buddy Holley or Roy, The Killer....?
    I have a couple in mind, but I'll save them for now.
    This should be interesting.
    Well............?

    That's the man.
    Great old movie, American Hot Wax 1978, tells the story.
    And than again in,The Alan Freed Story in 1999.
    Nice to see some input.
    He put it on the radio, King of the Moondogs.
    He also was the one of the first to promote it at any scale.
    A great scene from Hot Wax where the mayor with the police took his door because the kids won't sit in there seats or stop jumping around.
    It made them go crazy.....
    Alan tells The Killer who headlined that night, he had no money to pay him.
    Jerry Lee said, Rock and Roll has been good to me, this one's for Rock and Roll and proceeded to demolish his piano during the performance.
    And the rest is history............
    He is responsible for the birth of Rock and Roll, so I give him the prop.
    I just wonder how many know of Mr. Freed?
    He's important and people should hear his story.

    When you consider what Freed was playing when he coined the term and the incredible evolution rock has been through in the last 50 years, how could there be a king??

    Maybe a lot of princes?? [img]/ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img]

    Good point.
    I think he gave it the push and direction it needed.
    Not to say rnr wouldn't have found it's way, but basically, black music couldn't get air time on white radio stations until he played it.
    He was white, influential and respected.
    Rock and roll music created the generation gap, which it still perpetuates today.
    As the generations change the last has to change the channel.
    It almost defines the generations much like x and y gens.
    He made it acceptable to be different than your parents and he was the same age as them.
    After him it was easy or easier. It will never last....remember.
    The King's credentials have to be that of influence to all forms rock and role.
    He opened the door, he brought it to the people.
    His success despite financial hardship and political pressure has yet to be repeated.
    Your right Barry, there are a lot of princes.
    There is only one King, his name is Alan Freed!
    Just thought I'd say, this, about, that.
