(I’m pretty sure that’s Alan Freed second from the left at the table and also that this is a clip from the 1956 movie “Go Johnny Go”.)


  1. Now are you talking. Actually, you missed ONE BIG early Chicano rocker:
    Freddy Fender
    Wasted Days and Wasted Nights

  2. I’ll add Thee Midniters. And I think some members of the Sir Douglas Quintet.
