I do not know about that. But in 1956 the British society was turned upside down by the film Rock Around The Clock. When shown in a West End cinema, a group of teddy boys were reputed to have adjusted the cinema's seating fixtures, so that they could dance during the musical bits. Although we had heard of rock 'n' roll, the incident focused the nation's attention to it. Rock 'n roll became the number one controversy and there was huge social division. Questions were even asked in the Houses of Parliament. There was even a joke cracked by Sir Malcolm Sargeant during his speech at The Last Night Of The Proms.
In a documentary, many years later, an ex-teddy boy did say that the incident was not quite as reported.
I have sometimes wondered if it were a publicity stunt. But irrespective of the truth, I still love and adore 1950's rock 'n' roll. But what was not known so much by many of we Brits, was that a vast proportion of rock 'n' roll lyrics were inuendo. It was a slang term from the other side of the pond meaning....dare I use the word?..... here goes.......sex. There, that's me banned. I did not know that I was performing naughty songs until the 1970's. When I found out, I started to see the music in a different light. Now if this meaning was widespread knowledge in this country, I think the controversy would have been even greater.
I shall stop here, as at my age, this is giving me palpitations.
