How could I have forgotten this?

On yesterday's date in 1954 - July 5 - Elvis Presley, accompanied by bassist Bill Black and guitarist Scotty Moore, recorded Arthur Crudup's blues tune "That's All Right, Mama" with a fast country-and-western spin at Sun Records in Memphis. "That's different," Sun Records founder Sam Phillips said when they played it back. "That's a pop song now."

Rock and roll was "born."
