If Music does not start press play button above
August 22, 1936--February 13, 2010
Another pioneer of early Rock and Roll has left us. On Feb 13, 2010 we lost one of the greats of the 1950s, Dale hit the charts bigtime back in 1957 with his smash hit song "Susie-Q". He remained active in the music industry until very recently when his 4 year struggle with Cancer became too much as cancer often does. I can speak personally to that. Another of his great hits can be heard playing in the background of this memorial page to a truly great rocker. ("La-Do-Dada"). Read more about Dale Hawkins at the Rockabilly Hall Of Fame Website. or visit the Dale Hawkins Website.
So Long Dale we will all miss you.
