Bill Haley, Jr. with the Comets

Bill Haley, Jr. with the Original Comets at Bubba Mac Shack in Somers Point, NJ

Bill, Jr. looks just like his dad. I met him at a Philadelphia Folk Fest sometime in the 1980s, and when the Original Comets got back together he showed up at their shows and they asked him to join them on stage and sing a few songs, which he did on more than one occasion. These photos are from the now defunct Somers Point Bubba Mac Shack, where the Original Comets played around Labor Day weekend for four or five years in a row. Bill, Jr. also jammed with them at the Gloucester Rock & Roll Fest.
