Johnny Kay, lead guitarist for
Bill Haley & The Comets (1960-72) and a part of Rock & Roll history, is
celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the song "Rock Around the Clock"
here in the Delaware Valley. "Rock Around the Clock", by Bill Haley &
the Comets, became the first Rock & Roll recording to hit the top of
Billboard's Pop charts, a feat it repeated on charts around the world.
It is the biggest-selling Rock & Roll single of all time. A figure of at
least 25 million was cited by the Guinness Book of World Records. "Rock
Around the Clock" is said to be playing somewhere in the world every
minute of the day.
Johnny Kay has a first too. In 1982, Johnny produced "The Roots of Rock & Roll Video Guitar Course". It was the very first VIDEO how to play the guitar instruction course to hit the market and is still selling on DVD today. An anthology of Johnny Kay's work as a Comet called "Tale of a Comet", on Hydra Records (Germany) broke the top 20 chart as reported by "Now Dig This" magazine in England. He has just released his 5th album of original rockabilly/country songs called "Rock's Gone County".
