Wanda Jackson

The music establishment really didn't know how to handle Rock 'n Roll, to say nothing of Ms Jackson. She was the first singer that really caught my fancy as a teenager back in the 1950s. In the first photo I ever saw she was wearing tight black leather pants with a guitar slung low on her hips. Apparently she was too overtly sexual (Oh yeah!), and they toned her down a little. There are really three phases of Wanda - the Rock years, the Country years, and finally Gospel. I'm a rocker myself. So rock out, my children.
