Sister Rosetta Tharp an early Rock and Roll Diva!

Sister Rosetta Tharp was an amazing performer and innovator. I am convinced that she was the first person to play Rock and Roll. Strange Things Happening Everyday came out in 1944 and it sure sounds like rock to me.

Robert Johnson came amazingly close at an earlier time, so I think he would have invented it if he had lived a bit longer. It is sad when a genius passes on before his time.
