Happy Birthday to The Godmother of Rock and roll who was born today 99 years ago. Whew! Seems like yesterday to some people. Part sermon, part gospel, part rock and roll. Rosetta was immensely popular and successful. Go to the biography channel to read up on her life. By all means watch her biography if you have the chance. Or check out wiki here.
Rosetta must have known guitars well as I've never seen a picture where she was holder a inferior instrument. I think she might have been able to run circles around some guitar aficionados.
Sadly, diabetes took Rosetta at an early age of 58.
She certainly played expensive guitars! Here she plays a 1952 Gibson Les Paul Gold Top.
Happy Birthday Rosetta!
