What an Ulverston girl started
Stan's birthplace Ulverston lays claim to another international legend - the father of "rock 'n roll".
Maude Green lived in Ulverston until she emigrated to the USA at the age of 15. She later married William Haley, and on July 6th 1925, she gave birth to their son, also named William. With his backing group The Comets, Bill Haley instigated the most radical musical revolution probably of all time, and showbiz was never the same again. (With a tip of the hat to Carl Perkins).  The seminal "Rock Around The  Clock" record was released in 1954 and was used as the title music for a youth-rebellion movie The Blackboard Jungle.  The follow-up record "Shake, Rattle and Roll" was  the first "pop" record to sell a million copies, and the scene was set for the great rock 'n rollers' like Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley and Little Richard. Rock and roll lovers should spare a thought for Ulverston on this, the 90th anniversary of the son of an Ulverston girl.
