Bill Haley And His Comets - Songs


Bill Haley (July 6, 1925 - February 9, 1981) was a leading and pioneering figure in rock and roll history. He started out as a country music singer in the 1940s, gradually incorporated more R&B into his style, and by the early 1950s broke into rock and roll with "Crazy, Man, Crazy" (1953) and other songs.

Haley's best known songs include "Shake, Rattle And Roll" (1954), "(We're Gonna) Rock Around The Clock" (1955, 1974 re-release) and "See You Later, Alligator" (1956). He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987.
