#518 #RIP Chord-A-Roy boy Jimmy Rocco

The girls adored him, screaming loudly as he drummed and sang the Chord-A-Roys (the local "One Direction" in their day) through many a high school dance!

Sad to hear Jimmy Rocco has passed.

Somewhere in my pile of unlabeled cassettes I have an interview with Jimmy way back in the early 2ks when I hosted "Capital Region People" on WYJB B95.5

Check out the Chord-A-Roys, Saepians, Earl Manion + the Count 5 and Mike Olesko/Billy Cioffi's bands?

After the jump: Chord-A-Roy pictures from the 1967 Haunted Happening at VI!

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
