Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducts its first members: Little Richard, Chuck Berry, James Brown, Ray Charles, Sam Cooke, Fats Domino, The Everly Brothers, Buddy Holly, Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis Presley.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is a museum and hall of fame located in Cleveland, Ohio. It was established in 1983 to honour and celebrate the contributions of artists who have had a significant impact on the development and evolution of rock and roll music. The first group of inductees, which included Little Richard, Chuck Berry, James Brown, Ray Charles, Sam Cooke, Fats Domino, The Everly Brothers, Buddy Holly, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Elvis Presley, were chosen for their pioneering contributions to the genre and their lasting influence on popular music.

Little Richard Had an Orgy With Buddy Holly

Little Richard, known for his high-energy performances and flamboyant stage presence, was one of the first inductees in 1986. He was a major force in the early days of rock and roll, with hit songs such as “Tutti Frutti” and “Long Tall Sally” that helped define the genre.

In the 1985 book The Life and Times of Little Richard, an authorized biography written by historian Charles White (a.k.a. Dr Rock), Richard described a 1950s escapade with his longtime stripper friend Lee Angel and budding star Buddy Holly:

“One time Buddy came into my dressing room while I was jacking off with Angel sucking my titty. Angel had the fastest tongue in the west. She was doing that to me and Buddy took out his thing. She opened up her legs and he put it in her. He was having sex with Angel, I was jacking off, and Angel was sucking me when they introduced his name on stage. He finished and went to the stage still fastening himself up. I’ll never forget that. He came and he went.”

Little Richard

Angel disputed the account to GQ in 2010, saying, “I knew Buddy, but I didn’t know I knew Buddy that well.”

He Loved Voyeurism — and Got Arrested for It

One of Richard’s other kinks was watching others, a habit that got him in hot water a few times. In one instance in 1955, he got caught into a car watching a couple go at it and spent three days in jail. In 1984, he told Rolling Stone that he’d also oversee his bandmates during their orgies. “I used to like to watch these people having sex with my band men. They should have called me Richard the Watcher,” he said.

He Gifted People His Own Excrement

On a few occasions, Richard would take a dump in a box or other receptacle and give it as a present. He did this to his own mother as well as an elderly female neighbor. “She wanted to know what I had brought her. She said, ‘Let us see what Richard has brought for me.’ Then I just heard, ‘Aaaaaaa, aaaaaaahhh — I’m gonna kill him. I’ll kill him!’” he recounted in White’s book.

He Developed a Massive Drug Problem

Though a teetotaler in his early career, Richard got into the world of alcohol and drugs with the same gusto as he did music, dabbling with marijuana, cocaine, PCP, heroin, LSD, and more. “I was also blowing about $1,000 of cocaine a day,” he told People. “When I’d blow my nose, blood and flesh would come out on my handkerchief.” After professional setbacks and personal tragedies, including the loss of his brother from a heart attack in the ’70s, he eventually got clean.

His Biggest Hit Was Almost Certainly About Anal Sex

Finally, we have to note the lore surrounding “Tutti Frutti.” His 1955 career-defining hit originally included these lyrics:

Tutti frutti — good booty!  If it don’t fit — Don’t force it! You can grease it — Make it easy

“Good booty” was eventually changed to “Aw rooty,” slang for “all right,” but the telling of the song’s origins almost always refers to the song being about some backdoor action. Dorothy Labostrie, one of the listed co-writers, later said she came up with the lyrics based on the name of an ice cream flavor, but given everything else we know about Richard’s proclivities, it’s hard to imagine the rock and roll staple having such innocent origins.

Chuck Berry was another early inductee

He was a pioneer of rock and roll, known for his guitar work, songwriting and showmanship. His hits like “Roll Over Beethoven”, “Sweet Little Sixteen”, “Johnny B. Goode” and “Maybellene” helped lay the foundation for rock and roll music.

In 1959 Berry was arrested for taking a 14-year-old girl, Janice Escalanti, across state lines for “immoral purposes”, a crime for which he eventually served two years in prison. But that was almost 60 years ago, some might say: different time, different morals! Well, kinda. That he was then accused of installing a video camera in the ladies’ toilet of his Missouri restaurant is less easy to jazz hands away, given that it happened in the not wildly distant year of 1989. After tapes from this camera were found in Berry’s home, he was given a suspended sentence and settled a class action with 59 women.

James Brown, known as the “Godfather of Soul,” was inducted in 1986

He was a major influence on the development of funk and soul music, and his high-energy performances and powerful vocals set the standard for many of the artists who followed him.

He Pulled Out An Arm During An Insurance Seminar 

James Brown was on probation on September 24, 1988, when he randomly went to an insurance seminar in Augusta, Georgia. To clarify: he didn’t go there to learn about insurance, and he had no stake in any of the companies there. 

He was, however, high on PCP, and he had both a shotgun and a pistol. Brown ordered everyone out of the room, and then left the scene in his pickup truck with the police in hot pursuit.

Brown’s Third Wife May Have Fed Him Creamed Corn Laced With PCP

James Brown had an intense, tumultuous relationship with his third wife, Adrienne Lois Rodriguez. Rodriguez was a hair stylist when she met the soul superstar, and they married quickly. PCP was a massive part of their relationship, and they enabled each other’s addictions to a ludicrous degree. A member of Brown’s kitchen staff even claimed that Rodriguez put PCP into his creamed corn and coffee ice cream. Brown himself claimed that Rodriguez stabbed his mistress in the behind.

He Allegedly Shot Six Or Seven People During A Feud With A Fellow Singer

The path to the top of the charts is arduous and littered with collateral damage from bitter rivalries. One of James Brown’s earliest public enemies was an R&B singer named Joe Tex. Both men were signed to King Records, but they also had to compete for stage time and record sales and over time their animosity crossed the border from the professional to the personal. 

They made covers of the exact same songs, like “Baby You’re Right,” and Brown allegedly “stole” Tex’s ex-wife Bea Ford. Naturally, this led Tex to release the diss record “You Keep Her,” wherein he calls out Brown by name.

Things came to a head at venue called Club 15 in Georgia in 1963. Tex had teased Brown about his signature cape during a gig earlier in the day, mocking Brown’s performance and pretending to get tangled in the garment. So, the Godfather of Soul pulled out two shotguns.

Brown opened fire on his rival, allegedly shooting six to seven other people in the process. Miraculously, no one was slain. Brown took off, and members of his security team stayed behind to hand out hundred-dollar bills to the injured for their silence. Brown was never prosecuted for his actions. 

He Got A 16-Year Prison Sentence When He Was Only 15

James Brown had little supervision as a teenager, and he stole when he couldn’t find odd jobs to supplement his income. At 15, he was arrested for stealing from parked cars. Brown received an 8- to 16-year sentence for the crime, but he honed his performance skills while incarcerated. Everyone loved his singing, and so much so they called him “Music Box.” The warden and parole board were so impressed by Brown’s good attitude, they released him after only three years.

He Held A Funeral For His Dog, Poojie

James Brown loved his poodle mix, Poojie. And the singer was devastated when his maid accidentally hit Poojie with a door, and cracked the dog’s skull. Brown held an elaborate full funeral for the dog at his home in Augusta, Georgia. Poojie was laid to rest in a white casket, and Brown supposedly cried through the entire ceremony. 

His Legs Were Amputated Postmortem In A Paternity Battle

James Brown passed on Christmas in 2006, but the drama of his life didn’t end there. A massive battle over his fortune ensued between his children, ex-wives, and widow Tomi Rae. Rae was the mother of his youngest child, but Brown didn’t get a chance to change his will to include her or their son before he died.

During the battle, the singer’s body was moved a staggering 14 times. The family even demanded a paternity suit to prove the heritage of Brown’s youngest son. Because the singer was already embalmed, the Godfather’s legs had to be amputated to extract bone marrow for a proper DNA reading. It turned out the boy is his son, but the will dispute continued to rage well into the next decade. 

Ray Charles Could Fly

Ray Charles was also an early inductee, in 1986. He was a master of many different genres, including blues, gospel, and R&B, and his distinctive voice and piano playing had a major impact on the development of rock and roll.

Charles had an interest in flying and was determined to buy his own airplane. During the early 1960s, he bought a five-passenger Cessna 310, which was piloted by Tom McGarrity, one of the very few black Air Force veterans. Often Charles would ask McGarrity questions about the plane, and would even help the pilot under the plane’s hood. On some nights, instead of McGarrity’s switching to autopilot, Charles would fly, listening to the hum of beam tones of the radar.

Sam Cooke was another early inductee

He was a major force in the early days of rock and roll, known for his smooth vocals and hit songs such as “You Send Me” and “Wonderful World.”

Cooke was born in Clarksdale Mississippi where music was brewed in the family. Along with his eight siblings, he started his career at the age of six when he joined the Chicago group the Singing Children. This early exposure made him confident and he soon replaced gospel tenor R.H Harris as the lead singer of the gospel group the Soul Stirrers in 1950. Unlike many other contemporary African-American musicians, he didn’t rush into a pop career to increase his popularity. Rather, he attracted young listeners to the gospel genre through his soulful voice and sparkling personality.

During that time, there was a stigma against gospel singers performing secular music. So, when Cooke finally ventured into the pop territory with the release of his single ‘Lovable’ in 1956, he took cover under the pseudonym of ‘Dale Cook’. However, his voice was so well known by that time that he couldn’t dupe anyone for long. Cooke got blessings from the most unpredictable person, his pastor father, for his career in secular music and set out win over the world with his distinct voice: “My father told me it was not what I sang that was important, but that God gave me a voice and musical talent and the true use of His gift was to share it and make people happy.” It was during this time that he changed his name from Cook to Cooke — the additional ‘e’ marked the beginning of his new life.

He got the taste of success promptly after the song ‘You Send Me’ was released as the B-side of ‘Summertime’ in 1957 and ranked number one in both the R&B chart and Billboard pop chart. After having a grand success under the RCA Victor record label for one year with hits like ‘Chain Gang,’ ‘Sad Mood,’ ‘Cupid,’ ‘Bring it on Home to Me’ and so on, Cooke started his own record label SAR Records in 1961. Who knew then that his flourishing career would come to an end so soon.

On 11th December 1964, Cooke was shot dead by the Hacienda Motel’s manager Bertha Franklin in Los Angeles, California. According to Bertha, it was an act of self-defence as earlier in the evening Cooke burst into her office naked except for one shoe and a sports jacket and violently grabbed her asking for a woman. The two struggled and fell on the floor when Bertha got up and procured the gun and shot Cooke out of fear and then hit him on the head with a broomstick. The motel’s owner, Evelyn Carr supported Bertha’s story claiming that she was on the telephone at that time when Cooke invaded Bertha’s office. It was Carr who informed the police after hearing the gunshots.

The woman Cooke was asking for was Elisa Boyer who met Cooke earlier that evening at a diner. After the two spent a good time with one another, Cooke allegedly forced Boyer to accompany him to the motel. Once inside the room, Cooke tried to rape Boyer who fled the scene when Cooke went to use the bathroom. She claimed that in her haste she scooped up Cooke’s clothes along with hers. She knocked on Bertha’s door on her way-out seeking help but rushed out before it was too late and called the police from a nearby telephone booth.

However, witnesses at the Martoni’s Restaurant, where they drank earlier, claimed that Boyer went willingly with Cooke maybe intending to rob him. Though both Bertha and Boyer were declared innocent in the court, which ruled a justifiable homicide, the conspiracy theory regarding Cooke’s death didn’t die out. Cooke’s friends and family never believed that it was an accident, they always claimed that the story was fabricated indicating that some people ganged up and murdered Cooke.Singer Etta James wrote after viewing Cooke’s body that the injuries he sustained were much more serious than the official record stated. He was so violently beaten that his head was nearly separated from his shoulders, his hands were broken and his nose mangled. Bertha received several death threats afterwards and was forced to leave her job and migrate. When Boyer was charged with second-degree murder in 1979 after fighting with a boyfriend, after which he ended up dead, questions were once again raised regarding the legitimacy of the court judgment.

A false claim of rape and molestation is as dreadful and grim as the act of rape or its attempt. One may question the truth in both Bertha and Boyer’s statements but we also must not forget how society treated, as a matter of fact, still treats a rape victim. Their stories are always claimed to be illegitimate and baseless; they are always blamed for the horrible things that happened to them and they are threatened endlessly once they gain the strength and come out with the story.

Cooke’s licentiousness was an open secret. Many women claimed him to be the father of their child. Though he supported them with financial aid, it doesn’t take away the fact that he could have been a potential rapist. Often we turn a blind eye to the nasty side of celebrated figures, but we must view all the details and probable truths as objectively as possible before jumping to a conclusion. While the threads of Cooke’s life and death are confusing in equal measure, one thing that cannot be denied is his impact on culture during his short time at the top of the soul pile.

Fats Domino Was The Grandson Of Slaves

He was a major figure in the development of rock and roll, known for his rollicking piano playing and hit songs such as “Blueberry Hill” and “Ain’t That a Shame.”.

To put things in perspective, Fats Domino was born only 65 years after the end of the Civil War, and the Emancipation Proclamation. It’s not entirely surprising, then, that his father came from a family of Haitians who had first set foot in America as slaves.

Sometimes, it’s impossible for parents to tell what’s going to create that spark in their child, and in Fats Domino’s case, it was a piano that his family inherited. He was 10 years old when the instrument was moved into their home, and then? He was so captivated by it that his parents then decided it needed to be moved to the garage.

There’s a few different stories about how Fats Domino got his nickname, and it ultimately led to his breakout hit. In 1949, he was signed to a record contract, and that’s when he and longtime songwriting partner David Bartholomew wrote “The Fat Man” — which sold more than a million copies within just a few years (via The New York Times).

While Fats Domino might not have the same sort of name recognition today as someone like Elvis Presley, it’s impossible to stress just how important he was to shaping the genre as a whole. Even Presley said in a 1957 interview: “A lot of people seem to think I started this business. But rock ‘n roll was here a long time before I came along. … Let’s face it: I can’t sing it like Fats Domino can. I know that.”

When Fats Domino was in his heyday, the U.S. was still mostly segregated, and Jim Crow laws were still a thing. Rick Coleman — who wrote “Fats Domino and the Lost Dawn of Rock ‘n’ Roll” — says that Domino was one of first and most important artists who kicked down the very physical barrier between Black and white.

Rock has always had a bit of a reputation among those who just don’t get it… ya follow, daddio? There’s good reason for that, and in hindsight, a Fats Domino concert might seem like the most inoffensive venue in the world — but the very first riot happened at his July 7, 1956 show at the Palomar Gardens Ballroom in San Jose.

Why don’t we remember Fats Domino like we remember Elvis? Filmmaker Joe Lauro was invited to make a film about Domino, and says (via Rolling Stone), “he was just being forgotten because of his shyness and the fact that he lived a very private, un-crazy life. The man was on the road for 40 years, but he’s not … lighting the piano on fire. He’s not marrying his cousin that’s 13. … Of course, his extreme shyness is the reason why he was forgotten.” With Domino, there was none of the jail time, none of the controversy. When he wasn’t playing music, Lauro says, he was cooking.

The Everly Brothers were inducted in 1986

They were known for their close harmonies and hit songs such as “Bye Bye Love” and “Wake Up Little Susie” that helped define the genre of rock and roll.

Both of the Everlys were addicted to amphetamines. Don’s condition was worse, as he was taking Ritalin; his addiction lasted three years, until he suffered a nervous breakdown and was hospitalized to treat his addiction. The mainstream media did not report that either brother was addicted. When Don collapsed in England in mid-October 1962, reporters were told he had food poisoning; when the tabloids suggested he had taken an overdose of pills, his wife and his brother insisted he was suffering physical and nervous exhaustion. Don’s poor health ended their British tour; he returned to the United States, leaving Phil to carry on with Joey Page, their bass player, taking Don’s place.

Buddy Holly was another early inductee, in 1986

He was a major influence on the development of rock and roll, known for his songwriting, guitar playing and hit songs such as “Peggy Sue” and “That’ll Be the Day.”

Buddy Holly opened for Elvis Presley.

By the time he hit high school, Buddy Holly was playing guitar; by 1953, when he was only 17, he was playing regularly on radio in the country-and-western duo Buddy and Bob (Bob was Bob Montgomery, a friend from elementary school). On February 13, 1955, at the Fair Park Coliseum in Lubbock, Buddy and Bob opened for Elvis—with Holly borrowing Presley’s Martin guitar for the occasion. The pair would open for Presley twice more that year.

“Peggy Sue” was originally “Cindy Lou.”

The single, released on September 20, 1957, first carried the moniker of Holly’s niece, Cindy Lou Kaiter. But Jerry Allison, The Crickets’s drummer who co-wrote the song (with Holly and Norman Petty), prevailed upon the others to name it after his girlfriend, Peggy Sue Gerron. Happy ending: Allison and Peggy Sue got married. Unhappy: they divorced in 1965.

“Peggy Sue” hit number three on the Billboard singles chart, and in 2011 Rolling Stone ranked it 197th on its list of the 500 greatest songs of all time.

Buddy Holly had just one number one hit.

It’s hard to imagine, because so many Buddy Holly singles are classics, but only one topped the U.S. charts: “That’ll Be The Day,” in 1957. It also hit the top spot in England, and not long after, The Quarrymen covered it, in their first recording. You can hear it on The Beatles Anthology.

If not for Buddy Holly’s band, The Crickets, there would be no Beatles.

John, Paul, George, and Stu Sutcliffe (who played bass for the band during the Hamburg days) were all huge Buddy Holly fans. When trying to come up with a new name for their band (The Quarrymen, their original name after the school they went to, was growing long in the tooth), they thought of the Crickets. Then insects. Then beetles. Then eventually, after several variations, as a pun … Beatles.

“It was beat and beetles, and when you said it people thought of crawly things, and when you read it, it was beat music,” John Lennon explained in 1964. 

Buddy Holly was the prototypical singer-songwriter.

Before Holly came along, pop music performance and songwriting were, for the most part, separate businesses; composers crafted tunes in places like New York’s Brill Building, and performers picked from among those songs to record and sing in concert. But Holly and the Crickets wrote most of their own material, which didn’t go unnoticed by the next generation of rock and rollers. “The fact that the group relied on originals for their singles made them unique and put them years ahead of their time,” Bruce Eder wrote at Billboard.com, noting that the group’s first three big hits—”That’ll Be The Day,” “Oh Boy!,” and “Peggy Sue”—were originals, a stark contrast to Elvis Presley, who didn’t write his own tunes.

The “widowed bride” referenced in Don McLean’s “American Pie” was Buddy Holly’s wife.

Don McLean’s 1971 classic is all about that fateful plane crash. In the third verse, he sings, “I can’t remember if I cried, when I read about his widowed bride.”

The bride was María Elena Holly (née Santiago), who Buddy wed just two weeks after meeting her at a music publisher in New York, where she worked. She was pregnant when he died, but suffered a miscarriage a few days later. Santiago-Holly still controls much of the continuing business related to Holly’s music, but doesn’t own the songs—they’re held by Paul McCartney.

In 2009, Santiago-Holly told MassLive.com that she liked “American Pie” but disagreed with its central premise. “Buddy may not be here, but the music has not died,” she said. “It is still alive and well.”

Jerry Lee Lewis was another early inductee, in 1986

He was a major force in the early days of rock and roll, known for his high-energy performances and hit songs such as “Great Balls of Fire” and “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On.”

Born in Ferriday, Louisiana, Jerry Lee Lewis’s family was very poor. When he first showed a keen interest in his uncle’s piano at the age of eight, his father Elmo had to mortgage the family’s shack to buy Jerry Lee an upright Starck. The first song he mastered was Silent Night, in a boogie-woogie style. Musically, he was colour-blind; aged 14 he would sneak into a nightclub in the black part of Ferriday called Haney’s Big House, then hide behind the bar, and hear people like BB King, Muddy Waters and his favourite, Ray Charles. Like so many other southern boys, he was blown away by Elvis Presley, and spotted an opportunity. In late 1956, Elmo Lewis sold 33 dozen eggs and financed a trip to Memphis where Jerry Lee would successfully audition for Sam Phillips and Sun Records.

Tragedy struck Lewis’s life early, and often. When he was just three, his older brother Elmo Jr. was struck and killed by a drunk driver. Elmo was just beginning to show musical promise when it happened.

Elmo’s tragic passing was just the first of many car wrecks in Lewis’s life. Once, while visiting his parents back home in Ferriday, Lewis was ripping around the local streets at 80 miles an hour when disaster struck—a horse suddenly appeared in the road in front of him. Unable to get out of the way, Lewis simply ducked down in his seat and prepared for the worst. He hit the beast dead on, totaling the car and killing the horse.

Lewis remained mostly famous for the life he briefly led in 1957 and 1958 when he got to hang out on an MGM set with Elizabeth Taylor (“I ain’t never seen a woman that beautiful in my life”) and leave Liberace speechless (he couldn’t believe anyone, not even Jerry Lee Lewis, could play piano that fast, that well, and sing at the same time. Liberace thought there had to be another piano hidden in the wings). Of course, it didn’t last. After his British tour was abandoned in 1958, after the tabloids revealed he had married his underage cousin Myra, and after he told the American press that this didn’t really matter, that “thousands stood and cheered” in London, that there was nothing to apologise for, Lewis was effectively boycotted by TV, radio and concert promoters.

Elvis Presley, known as the “King of Rock and Roll,” was one of the first inductees

He was a major influence on the development of rock and roll, known for his distinctive voice, charismatic stage presence, and hit songs such as “Hound Dog” and “Jailhouse Rock.”

He met his wife when she was 14

Elvis notoriously met his wife, Priscilla, when she was just 14-years-old during his time in the Army when he served in Germany in 1959. At the time, he was 24-years-old. However, the illegality of their relationship didn’t stop him from making advances.

After he moved back to the US, they wouldn’t see each other face to face until 1962 but stayed in regular contact over the phone throughout this period before marrying when she was 22 in 1967. Throughout their relationship, Elvis remained promiscuous and was never exclusive to Priscilla, leading eventually to their divorce in 1973.

That wasn’t a one-off

Priscilla wasn’t the only underage girl Elvis reportedly became entangled with while he was at the height of his fame. He abused his power to manipulate young impressionable fans wherever he went on tour.

Joel Williamson, author of Elvis Presley: A Southern Life, claimed that two years before Elvis met his future wife, he took a group of three 14-year-old girls with him on tour who were up “for pillow fights, tickling, kissing and cuddling”.

Elsewhere in Williamson’s book, he claims that Presley had a 15-year-old girlfriend when he was 19 and that the singer was “obsessed with virginity”.

He once fired a gunshot at his fiance

Elvis was a manipulator who had extremely controlling streaks to his behavioural patterns — and he could get violent. He met Ginger Alden when she was 20, and he was 41, she was a pageant queen who he hoped to make his wife, but their relationship was problematic.

His treatment of her was horrifying, and the pair constantly argued during their time together. After one row, he allegedly asked one of his aide’s to pop the tyres on Alden’s car so she couldn’t leave his home, and on another occasion, when she drove away after a fight, it is claimed that he fired a gunshot. The couple were engaged to be married, but their tempestuous relationship never made it that far.

He drugged Priscilla

It wasn’t just Alden who he severely manipulated. Numerous reports have claimed that Elvis went as far as drugging Priscilla and spiking her with amphetamines to keep her awake through their mammoth sex sessions. Allegedly, after being introduced to them in the Army, Presley had grown addicted to the drugs, and they later grabbed control of his life.

During these drugged-up sex marathons with Priscilla, Elvis also took photographs on a polaroid camera, which he stored in a silver suitcase delivered to Priscilla after his death — years after their divorce.

Allegations of racism

Earlier this year, Quincy Jones revealed that he always refused to work with Elvis because he was a “racist”. The superstar producer explained, “No. I wouldn’t work with him. I was writing for [orchestra leader] Tommy Dorsey, oh God, back then in the ’50s. And Elvis came in, and Tommy said: ‘I don’t want to play with him.’ He was a racist mother — I’m going to shut up now.”

Meanwhile, Public Enemy’s ‘Fight The Power’ includes the lyric, “Elvis was a hero to most/But he never meant shit to me/Straight up racist that sucker was/Simple and plain.”

While there’s no cement evidence that Elvis was a racist, he undeniably appropriated black culture and repackaged it to the general public. The racism in American society allowed him to have such a fruitful career, and it was certainly something he leaned into consciously or subconsciously.
