Big Bill Broonzy

It’s not hard to see where Rock N Roll got it’s start. If it weren’t for masters like Big Bill here, what would we know today?

  2. Great video. When I was growing up, among my father’s jazz albums was a Big Bill Broonzy album that I listed to a lot. I later heard the Derek and the Dominoes cover of his classic road song, Key to the Highway and was stunned by its easy adaption to a more rock based blues. Happy Anniversary!

    When you think about it, Big Bill was already playing Rock ‘n’ Roll — at least proto- or nascent-rock.

    So true HTJ, key to the highway definitely has that sort of feel, as did much of his songs, where you can easily see the transformation into later rock n roll.
