I've always loved the guitar solo. Short, sweet and to the point, and fast. The guitarist who recorded it, Danny Cedrone, died a few weeks later after he fell down a flight of stairs.

Both? Neither? I read somewhere that he made up all the 'Hip' dialogue in the movie at the request of the director, so life imitating 'Art'.

I wish more current artists were influenced by Rock N' Roll, and not by Rock.

As Elvis Costello once said: Just listen to the words.  Rock N' Roll moves, it dances, it's fluid.  Rock is a monolith, it's a solid heavy slab.

/I'm not saying ALL music should be like this, but lots of Rock bands would be improved by adding some "N' Roll" to their songs.

It's interesting to realize that this type of music is the evolutionary forefathers of things like metal and punk.

Rock n Roll is only good if parents hate it.

/and not in a Justin Bieber kind of hate

I especially enjoyed the couple swing dancing on the table in front of the window

I've also been a fan of The Reverend Horton Heat's version

And a few months later, Elvis and Bill and Scotty recorded 'That's All Right, Mama'. Change was in the air.

Yep... It's one of the greatest guitar solos ever recorded, IMO.

My understanding is that black audiences thought Berry was a country music singer.

/Wasn't there

Big Joe Turner had been recording rock and roll for several years.

Roll 'Em Pete was recorded in 1938,

Bill Jr is out there, playing his dad's stuff - I know the sax player, and those guys play to big crowds all over the world - except here in the States.

Bill Haley was a big influence on me.

Foreigners appreciate classic American music far, far more than Americans do.  A lot of Americans prefer the British Imitation bands, like the Beatles, Stones, & Yardbirds ... all of whom started playing because they wished they were Americans.

Funny you should put it that way - I know that sax player from a Stones tribute band he also plays with around Philly. (PLUG: The Glimmer Twins Band)
