1Cousin of Florence Ballard.
2Hank Ballad created "The Twist," the dance craze of the '60s. The social changes among the sexes and the older generations brought forth by "The Twist" and its many offshoots; like "The Mash Potatoes", "The Monkey", and "The Frug" are immeasurable. Heretofore, males who had difficulty with the dance steps of "The Lindy" would often "sit one out" while their girlfriends danced together . Now they could buy records that they could dance to as well. These dances were also adopted in by older generations in nightclubs world wide , giving "R n R" a fan base, beyond the "teenage years".
3Was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame in 1990.
