Music Track - Bill Haley

It took close to a year for this piece of music to hit the UK.  Rock Around the Clock was the tune that really started rock and roll there.  I'm sure there were other pieces that might claim that title, but for we teenagers waiting for the Six Five Special to come onto our black and white TV screens back in 1955, it was this that began it all.  Bill Haley today doesn't look like the type to set people's hearts racing, but when he and his Comets eventually came to London, extra police had to be on hand to stop the rioting.  It was a long time ago!
