BY the GRACIE Of KOOLNESS!

 

On May 14, ’16, Rock & Roll Legend, (and we use that term strongly), Charlie Gracie celebrated his 80th birthday, and received a personal birthday song tribute via Facebook by his good friend, and another Rock and Roll legend, Sir Paul McCartney of the Beatles. Paul and the Beatles have long praised Charlie openly for being a major influence on their unbelievable career. Check it out! Paul McCartney birthday tribute to Charlie Gracie http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZYqFwMNkNA8&sns=em

Charlie is a outstanding person, guitarist, vocalist, and his gold record “Butterfly” hit the charts big in the 50’s. He’s one kool kat, and still fisty and kool, at 80 years old. Charlie has his life in over-drive, keeps his young looks, still performs to big crowds, sounds great, and still drives the same Caddy he bought way back when the chips were stacked high.  

Fellow teen angel kempers of the 50’s will remember seeing Charlie sing his hits on Dick Clarks American Bandstand in the 50’s, and some will remember Charlie’s appearance at the 2008 KKOA Leadsled Spectacular in Salina, and Sled scene East. Charlie Gracie is one straight-shootin’, happily married guy with a great wife and family. And we also use that term strongly. - ed. @ KKOA
