Shake, Rattle and Roll

And actually, as pointed out by my good friend and ex-Vancouver Sun colleague John Gibbs, who saw the Stones at the Agrodome (not Kerrisdale Arena)  in 1965 and once interviewed Janis Joplin, this isn’t Shake, Rattle and Roll at all. That’s Bill Haley and the Comets. This is Whole Lotta Shakin’. Doh!

  1. Framing aside, Jerry really cheered me up. And he lead me down the youtube rabbit hole, all the way to “american folk blues festivals 1963-1966: the british tours”.

  2. Even a cranky old social media critic like Mr. Typewriter here can’t muster up a negative thought about YouTube….it’s wonderful….try classic Bugs Bunny cartoons some night….when the big one hits, i intend to put on Shake, Rattle and Roll and kiss my butt goodbye 🙂

  3. of course what he’s singing in this clip is his classic “Whole lotta shakin'”, which is what he did with his 13 yr old wife

    “shake rattle and roll” was BIG for Bill ” Rock around the Clock” Haley and the Comets

  4. Were you there? Gibbs remembers being in high school and liking English bands, so he thought he’d go…he remembered the Stones were loud…hehe

  5. They never played the Agrodome but did play PNE Forum. Now, the Who did play the Agrodome.
