BILL HALEY & HIS FOUR ACES o OF WESTERN SWING, born: July 6, 1925, died : February 9, 1981, birthplace: Highland Park, Michigan. William Haley, Jr. was born in a suburb of Detroit and raised in Wilmington, Delaware, by his father, William Sr. (a factory worker from Firebrick, Kentucky) and mother Maude (a piano teacher from Ulverston, Lancashire, England). Young Bill began performing in an auction house in 1938 and left home two years later at the age of 15 to be a traveling musician, calling himself "Silver Yodeling Bill Haley" and bumming around from hillbilly band to hillbilly band, including Delaware's Cousin Lee's band, performing on WDEL. In 1943 he performed with Red Foley on the WLS Barn Dance. In 1944 he joined The Downhomers and they released "We're Recruiting" on the Vogue label in 1944. By 1946 Bill had his own band, The Range Drifters, and by 1947 he moved to Chester, Pennsylvania and formed Bill Haley & His Four Aces of Western Swing. In 1948 the Four Aces began recording for the Cowboy and Center labels, mostly popular country covers like "Candy Kisses" and "Tennessee Border". In 1949 they changed their name to Bill Haley & The Saddlemen. - - Jeffrey Scott Holland
(continued at the Bill Haley & The Saddlemen listing)

BILL HALEY & THE SADDLEMEN, Bill - born: July 6, 1925, died: February 9, 1981, birthplace: Highland Park, Michigan. In 1949 Bill renamed his Four Aces of Western Swing to Bill Haley & The Saddlemen, and began recording for the Keystone, Center and Atlantic labels with straightforward country songs like "I'm Gonna Dry Every Tear With A Kiss" and "Why Should I Cry Over You". But In 1952 they moved to Dave Miller's Holiday and Essex labels, and began releasing singles pairing the country songs with R&B songs, such as "Rocket 88" / "Tearstains On My Heart" and "Green Tree Boogie" / "Down Deep In My Heart", and stirrings of the first rockabilly records "Sundown Boogie", "Rock The Joint", "Rockin' Chair On The Moon", and "Dance With A Dolly". During this period there were also duets with Loretta Glendenning (including a cover of Memphis Slim's "Pretty Baby") and a Christmas single, "A Year Ago This Christmas" / "I Don't Want to be Alone this Christmas". Around 1952 Haley's band again changed names, this time to the Comets. - Jeffrey Scott Holland
