Pat Boone: I was smart enough to know that these songs were catchy, they were memorable, they were exciting. People who didn't live through the time don't realize, until 1955 there was no rock and roll, there was rhythm and blues. What we came to call rock and roll was an erotic expression that was heard in some rhythm and blues songs -- we're gonna rock and roll all night long -- that phrase you could say was referring to dancing, but when artists sang it it was more erotic than that. So the music was not acceptable. However, when Randy Wood played me the record of "Tutti Frutti" I'd already had several R&B hits and I was picking up on the flavor, the excitement and I knew immediately that this song -- as nutty as it seemed -- that it was uncharacteristic of anything I'd done, but I felt it was a hit. I knew kids would dance to it.
