PAST TIMES TEEN DREAMS WERE MADE OF TH­ESE

Huddersfield Daily Examiner - - FRONT PAGE -

BILL Ha­ley & His Comets were the ear­li­est group of white mu­si­cians to bring rock ‘n’ roll to the at­ten­tion of America and the rest of the world. With the band’s match­ing plaid din­ner jack­ets and en­er­getic stage per­for­mances, they were con­sid­ered revo­lu­tion­ary at the time. In 1955 Rock Around the Clock was the first in­ter­na­tional rock ‘n’ roll No 1 and was blamed for in­cit­ing ri­ots in Dublin and London where teenagers danced in theare aisles and tore up their seats.
