Bill Haley and The Saddlemen were a County Music act that began performing live on the radio in 1951. Many of their songs featured Bill’s yodelling.
In 1953, the group changed their name to Bill Haley With Haley’s Comets and recorded the record that has a good claim to being the first rock-and-roll single, Crazy Man, Crazy. The record peaked at #12 on the Hot 100, after which the group changed their name to Bill Haley & His Comets.
The group released a string of hits that peaked with the release of the chart-topping Rock Around the Clock in 1955. The group’s third top twenty single in 1956 was The Saints Rock ‘N Roll, which peaked at #18 on the Hot 100.
