Quotes by Johnnie Ray
My only real claim to fame is that I was an original. Before me there were the people like Russ Columbo, Perry Como, Crosby, Sinatra... they were more or less, stand-up singers. I revolutionised all of that. I imagine that I paved the way for what was to come, which was to be called rock and roll... and which was really no more than a bastardised version of rhythm and blues.
