Ed Helms served as the emcee for the event. Petty later accepted an award and said: “It empowered the youth of America and the government got really nervous,” he said, referring to rock and roll’s rise in the 1950s. “Especially Republicans. They put Elvis in the Army and Chuck Berry in jail and things calmed down for a few years but it was too late. The music reached England.and I joined the conspiracy to put black popular music on the white radio.” Copyright(c) 2017 RTTNews.com. All Rights ReservedLess «
