My 4th inductee is the incredible Pink Floyd. In 1973, a friend of mine had the 45 of “Money/Any Colour You Like” and I was hooked. Soon, I would, like everyone else, buy a copy of the Dark Side of the Moon LP. I later went back to their beginnings, and as a psychedelic fan, was not disappointed.
My third inductee into my Music Hall of Fame is Elvis Aaron Presley, dubbed “The King of Rock and Roll”. While, unlike my first two inductees, he didn’t write many of his songs, “All Shook Up”, “Don’t Be Cruel”, “Heartbreak Hotel” were three he penned and some of my favorites.
My second inductee into Doyle’s Space: Music Hall of Fame is Hank Williams. Born Hiram Williams September 17, 1923, in Mount Olive, Alabama. His spinal bifida separated him from other children and fostered a sense of separation from the world around him. Listening to the radio and church choirs he was a quick study and learned to play country, folk and the blues. His teacher, African-American blues artist Rufus Payne who exchanged lessons for meals and/or money.
As promised, my Music Hall of Fame with the inductees chosen entirely by me and me alone. My first Inductee is no real surprise, if you know me at all….
It is The Beatles.
