Like Stanley Bagshaw I spent my early years not really listening to music that was made by grown-ups for grown-ups - and it was really boring.
Then, in 1957 this Rock & Roll band came over on tour from America.....
Bill Hayley and the Comets
They caused a sensation.
They may look pretty tame to you now and their first big hit "Rock around the clock" would sound but compared with the song that had recently been the number one hit single; a song entitled "If I'd know you were coming I'd a baked a cake" sung by a lady who looked like a friend of your mother's they were wild and exciting.
