>10 greatest rock songs of all time<
By Andrew Jacquet


>"JK Rockets on the "You Tube Channel"<  

Johnny Kay, lead guitarist for Bill Haley & The Comets (1960-72) and a part of Rock & Roll history, is celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the song "Rock Around the Clock" here in the Delaware Valley. "Rock Around the Clock", by Bill Haley & the Comets, became the first Rock & Roll recording to hit the top of Billboard's Pop charts, a feat it repeated on charts around the world. It is the biggest-selling Rock & Roll single of all time. A figure of at least 25 million was cited by the Guinness Book of World Records. "Rock Around the Clock" is said to be playing somewhere in the world every minute of the day.

Johnny Kay and the JK Rockets band play songs by artists that influenced Johnny's 50 year career and songs that made Rock & Roll great. Johnny plays tunes from artists he loved and shared the stage with including Chuck Berry, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Big Joe Turner, some British Invasion bands, and of course, Bill Haley and the Comets.

The band also features Paul Wilson (keyboard & guitar) and Roberta Wilson (vocals), who will perform R&B and Motown hits. Paul was a member of another famous local band the Trampps. Remember "Disco Inferno"? Roberta opened for Motown's Eddie Kendricks & The Temptations. The JK Rockets also features great local musicians Frank Dobson (Bass) and John's brother Stan Kay (drums).

Johnny Kay has a first too. In 1982, Johnny produced "The Roots of Rock & Roll Video Guitar Course". It was the very first VIDEO how to play the guitar instruction course to hit the market and is still selling on DVD today. An anthology of Johnny Kay's work as a Comet called "Tale of a Comet", on Hydra Records (Germany) broke the top 20 chart as reported by "Now Dig This" magazine in England. He has just released his 5th album of original rockabilly/country songs called "Rock's Gone County".

Come out & hear Johnny Kay’s stories, the songs that made rock history, great guest artists, and some new & original songs too.
