Bill Haley has been called the “father of the rock revolution.” Blazing new trails in both the U.S. and Europe, his success laid the groundwork for Elvis and other rising rock stars of the 1950’s.
 
Like so many other popular musicians of the day, Haley began his career in high school, where he organized his band (originally called the Saddlemen), which would play for dances, school events, and nearby clubs. Although they had their beginnings in the country music field, Haley and his band soon began adding Dixie, rhythm & blues, and pop - creating a whole new sound known as rock ‘n’ roll.
 
In 1954, he recorded Joe Turner’s hit “Shake, Rattle, and Roll”, which became a number-one best seller and placed Bill Haley and the Comets in the spotlight. A year later, his original composition “Rock Around the Clock” became one of the biggest selling singles in the world, reaching number one on the pop charts for seven weeks in a row. Featured as the theme song in the movie “Blackboard Jungle”, Haley’s song gave teenagers a music all their own. As other stars rose to prominence though, Haley eventually faded into the background. His music however, remained popular through much of the sixties.
