Rock 'n' Roll

I chose Elvis Presley because not only is he a legend, but his music is still popular today. I chose Chuck Berry because after hearing his music, I immediately recognized it and it is pretty good. I chose Fats Domino because I listened to Blueberry Hill and thought it was good.

Chuck Berry was one of the pioneers of Rock 'n' Roll music. Chuck Berry created the rhythm and blues and developed them into a large part of what makes rock 'n' roll distinctive. Berry had been interested in music from an early age and gave his first public performance at Sumner High School; however, he was sentenced to two years in prison while in high school for armed robbery. After being released from prison, he settled down with his family and his interest in music was sparked once more in the year of 1953. The rest is history.

Elvis Presley, more commonly known as Elvis, was one of the most popular singers of the 20th century. He is referred to as the "king of Rock 'n' Roll." He began his career in Memphis, Tennessee in the year of 1954 at Sun Records. Presley has been inducted into four music hall of fames, and is the best selling solo artist in the history of pop music.

Fats Domino is an American rhythm and blues, and rock 'n' roll pianist. Domino was born and raised in New Orleans and first gained national attention with "The Fat Man" on Imperial Records. which sold over a million copies. Domino released his first album in 1955. One of his hit songs, "Blueberry Hill" reached number one on the R&B charts for eleven weeks while selling over five million copies worldwide.While Domino was performing in Fayetteville, North Carolina, a riot broke out and Domino jumped out the window to avoid the riot. He sustained minor injuries and continued his music career.
