The Father of Rock ‘n’ Roll, in 1952 Bill Haley & His Comets released their first top 20 US single Crazy Man Crazy, but it was not until the release of (Were Gonna) Rock Around The Clock that they finally hit the big time. Originally issued as a b-side in 1954 it was re-released in 1955 and reached number one in the US, the single is commonly used as the start of the rock era. Haley was the first American rock singer to tour Europe and continued touring until June 1980 when health problems led him to cancel his planned German tour.
