    Our story today follows a fairly well know man by the name of Sir Richard Starkey, better know as none other than one and only Ringo Starr... Ringo, of course, is best known for being the drummer of The Beatles.
    He often gets a bad wrap for being a bad drummer, but that could not be further from the Truth!

    Never To Be Forgotten

    Never To Be Forgotten

    Eddie Cochran is our subject today..


    Eddie Cochran is a paramount figure of rock and roll...He was basically Chuck Berry and Elvis rolled into one person. He was the original "rocker" .. like mods vs rockers? yeah Eddie was who all those rocker kids aspired to be.. He could sing, he could play guitar, he was good looking. this kid really had it all going on. He was experimental with recording techniques, being one of the first to mess with multi-track recording and overdubbing..He even was one of the first to mix distortion into his sounds.


    Legend.

    Anarchy Tour

    ROCK AND ROLL HISTORY:
    The notorious and ill-fated Anarchy Tour is our subject today. This tour was planned as the very first "Punk Rock" touring show which featured an all star line up. Sex Pistols, Johnny Thunders and the Heartbreakers, The Damned, and The Clash. The story gets pretty messy..


    How messy??


    Filthy and Furiously Messy.

    Todays episodes focus is on Sister Rosetta Tharpe. Known as the God Mother of Rock N Roll.
    If you havent heard of her, dont feel bad! she was practically written out of History Books.
    Here on Rock and Roll History, our intent is to set the record straight. I hope today's episode helps
    shine a light on this important figure of Rock and Roll.
