JANUARY

Initially, 'ERR' was going to dedicate the month of January to ELVIS Only.
However, we have decided to make an exception & include the 2nd of the 4 individuals
(with Special mention to Ms. Marion Keisker!) responsible for Inventing RAB & RnR...

ELVIS, Scotty, Bill & Sam Phillips. Respectively, withOut any 1 of them, there would be
NO Rock-A-Billy, NO Rock 'n' Roll & NO Elvis!!!

Sam "SUN" Phillips (1/5)
SUNRISE-1953  SUNSHINE-1954  SUNSET-1977

In The Beginning, SAM Said.. Let There Be ROCK!
A Bass Started Poppin', A Guitar Started Twangin', Fingers Started Snappin' &
A Left Leg Started Shakin'.. Then, A Voice Through A Mic Came From The Heavens..
"Have You Heard The News, There's Good Rockin' Tonight!"
A
nd A KING, Named ELVIS Was Born...

JANUARY 8th

An Irish Prayer In Memory Of King Elvis Aron Presley 1/8/35-8/16/77
May God give you...
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,

For every sigh, a sweet(
Elvis)song,
And an answer for each prayer.

Long, Long Before Michael Jackson, Tom Jones, The Beatles, James Brown,

The 1st & Original 'American Idol'...

Known As: "The World's Greatest Entertainer"...
AL "JOLSIE" JOLSON (5/26)
"You Ain't Heard Nuttin' Yet!"...
According to the St. James Encyclopedia of Popular Culture, "Jolson was to jazz, blues, and ragtime what Elvis Presley was to rock-a-billy, pop and rock 'n' roll." Being the first popular singer to make a spectacular "event" out of singing a song, he became a “rock star” before the dawn of rock music. His specialty was performing on stage runways extending out into the audience. He would run up and down the runway and across the stage, "teasing, cajoling, and thrilling the audience, often stopping to sing to individual members; all the while the perspiration would be pouring from his face, and the entire audience would get caught up in the ecstasy of his performance. No one had seen, or heard anything quite like it before. Jolson's style was the single most important factor in defining modern music. With his unique 'blackface' and dynamic style of singing black music, such as jazz and blues, he was credited with single-handedly introducing African-American music to white audiences."
Here are just a few of Jolsie's amazing achievements...
FIRST EVER MILLION Selling Single... "Sonny Boy"(1928)
FIRST EVER TALKING Short & Feature Films('A Plantation Act' 1926 & 'The Jazz Singer' 1927)
Invented & Designed the FIRST Modern Day Extended Stage Ramp Into Audience(1920s)
FIRST To Entertain Overseas Troops(WWII 1942) & Awarded Presidential 'Medal Of Merit'(1950)
Jolsie's LAST Single, "Are You Lonesome Tonight"(#1 1950) Was A EP Fav & Covered In 1960(#1).

                        May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
