As the nephew of Tommy Edwards and the owner of the slide collection, I know for a fact that extensive research was done for all the photos in the book. I was, and am, a big fan of Bill Haley and his Comets and fully understand that they were the first "Kings of Rock & Roll," as does author Chris Kennedy, who states in the book, Bill Haley was "our first rock superstar" and he acknowledges that his "brilliant music survives." I was sorry to read that Jack Haley took issue with certain statements in the book. The intent was never to diminish Bill Haley and his Comets, as many fans (including myself) of that era loved him.
Long Live Rock & Roll.
