Hip Hoppin' the Rock[Rock Around The Clock Forever]
by Joey Welz
Released: May 2003
Label: Caprice Intl-Records-Cir-20031
As a member of Bill Haley's Comets, Welz became known as one of the most resilient rockabilly pianists of the day. Hip-Hoppin'... is basically Welz's life story "rapped" to music. And while he can come across as the uncle who gets drunk and sings at family parties, it's very endearing in a Wesley Willis kind of way.
