Stephen's Quote of the Day: "I'm not gonna die in 4/4 time" ... Moondog
This has exploded for me (quote-wise)…Louis Thomas Hardin (Moondog)…the man of quotes!!!!!!ReplyDelete
(Probably) a great year......But we would have to wait until 1957 for the first Buddy Holly album, although he did have singles out in 1956!
Most of these artists died far too young.
Although Bill Haley was almost ten years Elvis’ senior, and he had records out a year prior, he also lived longer! (Although still gone at 55 (probably drunk and crazy!!!)
It’s sad to note:
Clifford Brown – 25
Gene Vincent - 36
Elvis Presley – 42
Bill Haley – 55
Sister Rosetta Tharpe - 58
Helen Merrill – Still going at 92!
That said, I have two, I believe worthy quotes:
“I sat down one night and wrote the line rock, rock, rock everybody.”
“I'm not gonna die in 4/4 time.”
You always come up with the goods, Stephen.ReplyDelete
