I like George but he has nothing to do with rock.

George Jones' early music sounds to me like rock and roll. Listen to the days when he did "White Lightning"

Yep, I suppose it did sound a little like Rock & Roll...it was written by the Big Bopper (a little trivia for ya).

Not rock and not important enough.

How is the "Greatest living country performer" "not important enough?" Maybe not to rock but certainly to country.

"Not rock and not important enough."

What a moronic comment. No, the Possum isn't rock. He is unquestionably, however, one of the most important vocalists (country or otherwise) in the history of recorded music.

"White Lightnin'" was written by the Big Bopper. That rock enough for ya...?

RIP George Jones. If I had a riding lawn mower I'd take it out for you!

Why was Conway Twitty nominated before George Jones?

Posted by Roy on Monday, 04.29.13 @ 10:33am


Because Twitty's music veered much more significantly into RnR territory than Jones' did. Mystery solved.
