It does concern me the lack of interest at the moment regarding the 50th Anniversary. Outside of Memphis (where understandably, its a money making exercise), there doesnt appear to be much interest at all. Aloha and 68 Special DVDs due out in June and there is zero publicity and yet we are nearly in May. Elvis 2nd To None generally sold poorly as is Ultimate Gospel and again its down to lack of promotion. We'll see what happens, but dont expect too much.

Here in Germany and Austria Bill Haley and his "Rock Around the Clock" was celebrated quite a lot, as the birth hour of Rock'n'Roll. No word about Elvis and July 5th. Unfortunately. But I am afraid that's how it will be :-(((

I just hope they re-release the single. The potential for a smash hit is enormous!

The tabloids may be celebrating the release of Rock Around The Clock as the defining moment in Rock history, but how many kids wanted to look and sound like Bill Haley back then? Not many! Not to denigrate Mr Haley's talents - I for one enjoy his music - but compared to Elvis how many artists were ever influenced by Bill Haley? To me Elvis' brand of Rock is the defining one. Bill Haley & The Comets always seem to me to have had one foot in the Jazz genre, which the members no doubt played in their early careers. The guitar riff in Rock Around The Clock wouldn't sound out of place in a Jazz number of that era. And of course Mr. Haley - or at least the song - came to the public's attention through the film "Blackboard Jungle", so he had something of a head start on Elvis. Held in high esteem and regard by '50s Rock n Roll fans, in the wider world of iconic Rock status he has little influence - and I'm speaking as someone who is a die-hard '50s Rock n Roll fan! But when all is said and done, to each his own.

I agree - this is important and im going to get in contact with some radio stations here in London to make sure they are aware but i don't really understand what this satellite feed thing is. How do radio stations access it?
What else can we the fans do to make sure people are aware?

Well April 12th has passed, and I didn't hear a word about Bill Haley. I think they'll do something big, for Elvis. I think we all might be surprised. I'm sure they will also do something big for the 50th of Heartbreak Hotel, and the Sullivan show in 2 years from now, but to me, this is more important..

Gribz, I enjoy reading your comments and I think you are right in what you say, but my own personal thoughts are, that not everyone is getting carried away with all this July 5th stuff. Infact I've read major articles in 6 different UK tabloids this week and they were all celebrating Bill Haleys ''Rock Around The Clock'' as the most defining moment in Rock and Roll history. April 12th 1954 was the date to be precise. Hey, we all know that when Elvis came along a few months later, it all exploded further, but don't get your hopes up for a major publicity campaign !

Great now we have to mobilize and get everyone motivate for this historic moment. I hope EPE and BMG realize how important it is to put together an effective campaign at this time. The world needs Elvis now; with all the problems today, Elvis is the one that transcends politics, religion and culture. Please coordinate a strategy that is broad and global. Look what one company did overseas with 'A little less conversation'. The timing is perfect, and their will be plenty of corporate sponsorship to help along, if it's approached in the right way.'Idea; The new 'If I can Dream' video with Elvis in leather, leading the band on stage. How fitting is that for today. Just a thought, We the fans have to create some excitement, and Elvis will do the rest, but it starts with BMG and EPE.
