Rock n' Roll Album Numero 1.

                                                    (Rock n' Roll Album No 1).

I was asked to make a Rock n' Roll C.D, so here it is, comprising of 'Old songs' that I remember whilst I was just a teenager. It was a marvelous time, never to be forgotten.

Chuck Berry was an innovator, together with so many that jumped on the 'bandwagon', rounding off the whole escapade. It was said that Chuck 'paved' the way' for Elvis Presley, who in turn gave so much enthusiasm during those times. I was definitely part of this wonderful episode and genuinely contribute the songs below to the continuity of 'Rock n' Roll' music.  -  Happy listening - (wammy).

(Below) The START of it all.

The Merrie England Pub, Great Harwood -birthplace of so many Bands/Groups' back in the '60's.  Although now demolished, the memories of those wonderful (authentic) times still remain.

              Not quite so 'Merrie' England.

Above Photos (Start of it all) c/o Vaughan (The VIKING) Whitaker.

I would also like to present these (Three) photographs below, Vaughan 'The Viking' Whitaker and thank him for the time and effort he has contributed on my behalf. (He began playing 'Bass' guitar with the 'Astronauts') "Why 'Bass'" I asked to which he replied "There are only 'four' strings' and it would be easier to play".                  
My many thanks also go out to so many who have
helped me create 'My book'and especially John 'Snuffy' Morton for his endless interest and research,
My wife Patricia goes without saying, her patience is paramount.

x - thank you all.
