A Slice of History from Detroit Rock City

In the summer of 1925 in Highland Park, MI, a boy named William John Clifton Haley was born.  William John Clifton Haley eventually shortened his name to Bill Haley, got himself some Comets as a backing band, and became dubbed ‘The Father of Rock and Roll,’ thanks to hits like Rock Around The Clock and Shake, Rattle and Roll.  He ignited a rebellion in 1950s youth culture and paved the way for statement-making rock music for years to come.
