A big enough personality to stay in the consciousness of multiple generations despite not having a hit after 1957!

I did not think he was that much older than me. Sad to learn of this.

Truly a pioneer of rock n roll. I actually thought he was a bit older.

A rock & roll GIANT... for me, 1/3rd of the 1950's triumverate with Elvis and Chuck Berry.

I know what I'll be blasting in the car for the next few days...

RIP

I was saddened to see this in the news this morning. I wish I had been able to
see him play live.

Definitely a pioneer and icon. Who is left of those who provided the foundations of rock and roll? Don Everly, Gene Vincent and Jerry Lee Lewis are the only ones I can think of that we still have.

Peter -- I think Huey "Piano" Smith is still alive. Not that he was ever that big a star. And Dion of Dion and the Belmonts.
