The Rocky Horror Picture-Show was the first television series to include musicals, and one of the first to feature a musical group.
But as we know from “Rocky,” musicals and musicals only seem to work in small communities.
In this series, we revisit the band and band name of one of Hollywood’s most beloved musicals.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, opened on October 17, 1947, and the opening night of the show was “The Rocky Horror Show.”

“Rockies” was sung by Stanley.
The opening night’s musical numbers were “Rockers,” “Rock of Ages,” and “Rock on, Rock on.”
The Rock of Ages was sung in a style that would be familiar to generations of audiences today.
The first musical number, “The New York Blues,” was performed by George Gershwin.
The Rocky movie was first released on December 19, 1939.
The film starred Frank Sinatra as Rocky Horror.
The movie had been made for a week at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City, which was a hotbed of rock and roll in the early 1930s.
It had been shown to the president of the New York State Academy of Music, but the show’s producers decided that it would be too politically charged.
They called the production Rocky Horror, and it had a special opening.
In 1939, the movie opened in theaters in more than 400 cities, and by 1950, it was the most-watched show on television.
The “Rock in the Park” musical was performed in New Orleans by the St. Bernard’s Choir, which featured John Paul Jones and his wife, the pianist Rosemary.

“It’s a Wonderful Life” by Bing Crosby and Joe Jackson was performed and written by George Martin.
The Broadway musical “Little Women” was performed at the New Beverly Cinema.
The New York Philharmonic Orchestra performed the song “The Little Drummer Boy.”
A song that would soon be sung by every Broadway cast member was “You’re a Fine Girl.”
A band of rock stars was performed on the show, including a number by The Byrds, The Who, and The Who-band.
A musical by Robert Plant and Bruce Hornsby was performed, as were “Gigantic” by the Who, “Truckin'” by The Who Band, and “The Star-Spangled Banner” by The Eagles.
A movie featuring a musical called “Rockymouth” was produced by Robert De Niro, and featured the song written by Johnny Cash.
“Talladega Nights” was the second movie of the series.
In 1949, it opened in more theaters than any other show on Broadway.
The show had its own theme song and featured songs written by the likes of The Rolling Stones, The Yardbirds, and Marvin Gaye.
In 1955, the film was adapted into a film starring Humphrey Bogart, with the musical number “Tough Love” by James Brown and Jimmie Rodgers.
“The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle” was a feature film.
It starred Richard Pryor and featured “Rocko’s Got a Brand New Ride” by Jack Kerouac.
