Peace and love and rock'n'roll from a hillbilly, hellbent on saving the world.

Remember the threat of rock'n'roll? Well, no, you probably don't. Not unless you're old. In 1956 we were all in danger of going to hell because of Elvis' hips and Little Richard's hairdo. Girls admitted to lust.
Of course the Beatles scared parents all around the world until the Rolling Stones out- naughtied them. In 1965 Bill Wyman's hair was as long as my Aunt Marion's. We were definitely going to hell now.
Turns out that lots of our morals and ethics lessons came through our music. All You Need Is Love alright. The best of our rock'n'roll heroes were our Sunday school teachers, too. Who knew?
