Crazy Man, Crazy: The Bill Haley Story is written by the singer’s son Bill Haley Jr with Peter Benjaminson, and at last reveals the entire explosive saga of this certified rock’n’roll legend. The classic songs, the wild performances, the rough roadhouses, and the Hollywood high points, along with the devastating demons that plagued this troubled trailblazer are all here in this thoroughly detailed and personal account of the amazing life of a true American original.

 

The first complete biography to uncover the mystery of the world’s original rock’n’roll superstar, Crazy Man, Crazy: The Bill Haley Story combines extensive interviews with family members, ex-Comets and business associates, with decades of exhaustive research and rare and previously unseen photos from Bill Haley Jr’s personal family collection. In Crazy Man, Crazy: The Bill Haley Story, the authors break through the shroud of secrecy and offer a unique glimpse into the personal and professional lives of this little understood American musical innovator, including his tragedies, triumphs and the fallout of his failures as a father and husband.

 

Crazy Man, Crazy: The Bill Haley Story illuminates both the public and private life of Bill Haley for the first time, and shows that fact is indeed stranger and more interesting than fiction.

Bill Haley, Jr. and the Comets is a high-energy five-piece combo performing a rousing, crowd pleasing set of songs first recorded at the dawn of rock 'n' roll by the legendary Bill Haley and the Comets, and other popular tunes from the 1950s and '60s.

 

Emphasizing authenticity in sound and presentation, this "Rock 'N' Roll History Show" features Bill Haley, Jr. sharing the inside stories and historical context behind the songs he sings backed by his talented band of comets — saxophonist extraordinaire Kaj Hansen; nimble-fingered Mike Denaro on electric guitar; Christopher Davis Shannon slapping the upright bass; and Rich Flamini's energetic Gene Krupa-style drumming.

 

Be prepared to jump, jive, dance, clap, stomp your feet and sing along as Haley and his Comets rock the joint!
