When rock'n'roll was new it was all about love. Well, lust and love. I was young then. I was all about love, too. Well, lust and love. Rock'n'roll converted. In the early days it meant money for the mob, some DJ's and Col. Parker. Most of the record guys and radio guys loved the music. Oh, I'm sure that the Chess brothers and Morris Levy would have put out trash if they thought there was an extra buck to be made. Still, it was the rock'n'roll that changed everything and mostly for the better.
I've got my own ideas about when it all changed. Uncharacteristically, I'll keep them to myself. Some of my heroes were involved.
Me? It's still about the love. Good thing, huh?
