Remember When

Elvis Presley made his TV debut on The Dorsey Brothers Show?
Who were the Dorsey Brothers, you ask? You're younger than Contrarienne, aren't you?
Anyhoo, the 35 best Rock n' Roll moments on TV forever enshrined on the intertubes by somebody with a whole lot more ambition and stamina than me. Thanks MetaFilter for making up for a slow news day.

Earlier drummer Keith Moon bribed a stagehand to pack extra charges in his bass drum. Whenever the destruction of the Who's instruments begins and Moon kicks his bss drum over, the explosion deafs guitarist Pete Townshend for 20 minutes. This was the last time the Who appeared on an American variety show.
