Why would you have to do that? The English had all of the rock stars in the 1960's.
I was talking more of the 1950s when Bill Haley (Rock Around The Clock in 1956) burst onto the scene.
It was the days when the BBC expected their radio newsreaders to wear a suit, collar and tie and flatly refused to play rock-and-roll music because "it corrupts our youth".
Radio Luxembourg was a radio station not governed by the then UK's stringent broadcasting laws and was the only way we youngsters could listen to this new, fresh music.
