Cousin Brucie!

I hosted the Friars Celebrity Interview series with the legendary Cousin Brucie—an hour, one-on-one interview about his career, with stories about Elvis, his introducing the Beatles at Shea stadium, and the evolution of rock music.

Here's a tidbit:

I asked him: "If you could place one year of rock music in a time capsule for future generations which year would you pick?"

"1965—it built on the foundation of American rock from the 50's and was open to include the English wave and the West Coast sound."

By the way, Dick Clark's answer to the same question was 1957.

Both were memorable years.
