  • I was born when Billy Haley and and the Comets´»Rock Around The Clock» was at it´s top popularity: 1955. A keen listener since early childhood, I remember enjoying many songs from the early Rock and Roll years and early 60´s Highschool Honeydrip. In 1964 I started taking R&R music more seriously with the apparition of a new “a Go-Go” radio station dedicated to this kind of music. That’s when I began jotting down song lyrics and started friendship with classmate Hugh Watts Taylor; another Rock and Roll fan at only ten years of age. One of my passions: electric guitars - their sound and effects (reverb and tremolo back then), their curves and designs (I later became an Architect and designer), their beautiful color bursts and shinny buffed finishing. Wow, it´s still an indescribable thrill every time. In the early 70´s, another beautiful, new and exotic sound came along as well: the Moog Synthesizer! Notebooks and scrap paper started pilling up with all my handwritten song lyrics. In 1970, I asked my parents to have a guitar for my birthday. With Hugh’s help, I got the first chords for my lyrics. From there on, work has never stopped, even working my fingers right done to the bone figuring out the correct chords and tabs for my favorite songs, hunting, wherever, a particular missing chord to a song. In 1972, I built my own electric guitar from instructions published in Popular Mechanics Magazine. Now more than five decades have gone by. It´s been said, from the very beginning, “Rock and Roll is here to stay”, and it´s still going on. Among today’s works I keep finding wonderful pieces of good and pure R&R music. You have to dig a little but, they keep coming. People tend to associate R&R music with loud, crappy music and lots of annoying noise. Every group has made noise to some extend; some less than other. This causes general opinion to forget the beautiful pages of this important music genre. Curiously, the more diminished musical sense some people have, the more affinity towards loud, long, noisy, poor quality music pieces! Melody and rhythm together is “Rhythm and Blues”. Always ask, “Can you whistle or hum to it?” “Can you tap to it?” Rock and Roll is fun and it´s simple. Melodies come from the heart and they touch you. Beat makes you want to move and dance. Lyrics are sometimes naive, sometimes very profound. Love is all around. I hope you enjoy this work as much as I have preparing it. Henry Potdevin This book is dedicated to my son, Johann, who likes my music, plays it so well and asked so many times to have a photocopy of my hand written songbooks. Printing tips: 1 - Use Legal size paper 8.5” x 13 3/4” (215 mm x 350 mm) 2 - Select “print size” to “User Defined”: 8.5 x 11 3/4” (215 mm x 300mm) 3 - Cut printed sheets to A4 size: 11 3/4” length (300 mm) 2 The Potdevin Rock & Roll Songbook - www.lepotdevin.com
