November 11 - Vintage Rock and Roll

The Vintage Rock magazine published volume 2 in their 'Rock and Roll Years' series. This second volume covers the years 1955 - 1959.

Description: The new Vintage Rock special continues its history of rock’n’roll with a look at the years 1955-1959.

In Volume II, we remember John Lennon’s pre-Beatles skiffle outfit The Quarrymen, and look back at the beginnings of Elvis’ career. We talk to the family of Johnny and Dorsey Burnette (aka The Rock’n’Roll Trio) and profile some of the rock and roll greats, including Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Billy Lee Riley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Buddy Holly, Eddie Cochran, Chuck Berry and Little Richard.

We also examine some of the era-defining movies of the time, including The Girl Can’t Help It and Cliff Richard vehicle Expresso Bongo. Not only that, but we have features on the women of rock’n’roll, Top 20 tracks from ‘55-’59 and The Day The Music Died. All this and more in the second part of our definitive history of rock and roll."
