10 greatest rock songs of all time
By Andrew Jacquet @indiacom | April 04, 2014 10:48 PM

Rock Around the Clock
recorded 6/1/13 at the New Candlelight Theatre
"Evolution of Rock 'n' Roll" Show


>"JK Rockets on the "You Tube Channel"<  

To all of the loyal Rock ‘n’ Roll fans...through all of these many years...

The Music - This music is dedicated to you and to Bill Haley, the "Father of Rock ‘n’ Roll".  I am thankful that I had the honor of playing and recording the music that started it all! And I will be forever grateful for the many years (1960-72) that Bill Haley had me play lead guitar as a "Comet" and be his friend.  Many of the songs may be new and original; but, the sprit of the rock music - that started it all - will always be evident within each song.

The Show – "Evolution of Rock 'n' Roll" is a musical history of early rock ‘n’ roll from a man who lived it. JK Rockets features Johnny Kay, lead guitarist and vocalist for Bill Haley and the Comets from 1960-72. Johnny is one of the original rock ‘n’ rollers from the Philadelphia area. Do you remember, “Rock Around the Clock?” Johnny shares his stories about music before rock ‘n’ roll and what early rock ‘n’ roll was all about! The show features songs and artists that influenced Johnny’s 50 year career and some original songs too. He plays tunes from artists he loved and shared the stage with including Chuck Berry, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Big Joe Turner, some British Invasion bands, and of course, Bill Haley and the Comets.  The show has added Paul and Roberta Wilson, who will perform hits from Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin and more. Paul was a member of the “Trampps.”  Remember “Disco Inferno?” Roberta opened for Eddie Kendricks & The Temptations.
