Rock ‘n’ Roll Says Farewell To A Legend

With his songs such as “Johnny Be Good” and “Sweet Little Sixteen” the artist surprised and delighted the younger generation, while parents were shocked by his lyrics.  The artist’s consisted of lyrics about girls, fast cars and dancing the night away, partying until the early morning hours.  This coupled with his obvious high self confidence and his ability to make his guitar scream, was his path to making a mark in the Rock ‘n’ Roll world possibly before the world was ready.
