Johnny Ace

Johnny Ace bears the unfortunate distinction of being the first rock and roll casualty. He shot his brains out on December 25, 1954, backstage at City Auditorium in Houston. Maybe it was an accident; maybe it wasn’t.

Johnny Ace:

Pledging My Love – One of those sweet R & B teen ballads, it was Ace’s first pop hit, and, for obvious reasons, his last.
