When we search for a starting point for rock and roll, we find Bill Haley and The Comets as the first who made this music. The composition of the band was near to a jazz band, with a big variety of instruments. The look of Bill Haley was far of a rock star, with his funny hair style. Also he wasn't very young. But they made first step with Rock around the clock, released in 1954 but populirized time after when appeared in a film. The band had some hits, and joined in some films too. They maybe complete a gradual process that finally led to a new music and dance called rock and roll.
