All Memphis Music ~ The state of Rock N Roll 8-25,1959

Oh well what did Billboard Magazine know? On this day August 25, 1959.

 In the US, a headline in Billboard magazine read, "Rock and Roll Ain't Ready For The Ol' Rockin' Chair Yet."

The story stated that Rock 'n' Roll was losing popularity a year ago, but the record buyers now like Elvis Presley, Lloyd Price and Fats Domino along with newcomers, The Everly Brothers, The Drifters and Ricky Nelson.
Hmmm. Elvis?? Nice work Billboard!

Thanks for listening to All Memphis Music
