An Introduction to Bill Haley

Subtitled “The Man Who Turned Jump Blues Into Rock ’n Roll,” this article looks at the story of how Haley managed to create the hybrid genre of Rock ’n Roll and why his own creation left him behind.  The article discusses Haley’s four theme albums, and the Comets spinoff group The Jodimars. The Jodimars would later become Bill Haley’s Original Comets, one of rock music’s longest-running nostalgia acts.
