Bill Haley | This Day In Music

Written by on February 9, 2021


9 Feb 1981, American singer and musician Bill Haley who became known as the first Rock ‘n’ Roll star, was found dead, fully clothed on his bed at his home in Harlingen, Texas from a heart attack, aged 55. He scored the 1955 UK & US No.1 single ‘Rock Around the Clock’ as well as ‘See You Later, Alligator’, ‘Shake, Rattle and Roll’, ‘Rocket 88’, ‘Skinny Minnie’, and ‘Razzle Dazzle’. Haley was blinded in his left eye as a child due to a botched operation and later adopted his distinctive spit-curl hairstyle to distract attention from his blind eye. https://www.thisdayinmusic.com/stairway-to-heaven/bill-haley/
