Rest In Peace Wee Willie

Wee Willie Harris, a pioneer of rock and roll and an inspiration to The Beatles, has passed away at the age of 90. Harris was known for his wild stage antics and energetic performances, which made him a favorite among audiences in the 1950s and 1960s. He was often compared to American rock and roll legends like Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis.

Harris began his career in the early 1950s, playing in clubs and theaters throughout the UK. He gained a following with his high-energy performances and his signature tune, “Rockin’ at the Two I’s,” which became a hit in 1957. He went on to release several more singles and albums, but never achieved the same level of success as some of his contemporaries.

Despite this, Harris remained a beloved figure in the rock and roll community and was known for his kindness and generosity to other musicians. He was also an inspiration to The Beatles, who cited him as one of their early influences.

Harris continued to perform into his 80s and was a regular at rock and roll revival shows and festivals. He was known for his distinctive style, which included brightly colored suits, thick-rimmed glasses, and a signature quiff hairstyle.

Harris’ passing marks the end of an era in rock and roll, but his legacy lives on in the music he inspired and the memories he created for fans around the world.
