Wanda Jackson, on why she always traveled with her father to performances: "It  was very important that my reputation stay intact. And I’m sure that  was probably the main reason that he traveled with me.  So I wasn’t able  to ever go from city to city in the car with Elvis.  You know, Dad had  to drive me; I had to be in my car.  And, you know, he didn’t allow me  to sit on someone’s lap, and I couldn’t lay my head on someone’s  shoulder if I was sleepy and they were riding with us, you know.  And he  was pretty strict in those things.  But it did keep my reputation  intact."

  1. In the 1950s, Wanda Jackson  became one of the first women to start singing rock ‘n’ roll music.  Now, after more than 50 years of performing everything from country to  rockabilly to gospel, Jackson is updating her sound. She’s released a  new album of covers with the help of a performer nearly 40 years her  junior: Jack White of The White Stripes. View in High-Res
