Otto Fuchs was born on May 13th 1978 in Mariazell, Styria /Austria. He discovered a deep passion for rock & roll while still in his early teens. At fourteen years old, he becomes the youngest writer for the German “Rock & Roll Music Magazine“. From 2000-2004 he hosted “The Rocket 88 Show” for KRKT 99.1 FM Rock It Radio, Ventura, California. Numerous interviews with 1950s Rock & Roll Legends such as Billy Lee Riley, Marvin Rainwater, Gene Vincent Blue Cap Drummer Dickie “Be Bop“ Harrell, Bill Haley’s Comets members Mar-shall Lytle and Bill Turner are led & recorded by Fuchs for this show ... During that period he also places various articles in the German “Dynamite – The World Of Rock & Roll“ magazine.

In 2005 he began to contribute reviews and interviews for German jive, swing & rockabilly magazine “Slam Bam“. Bob Timmers of the Rockabilly Hall Of Fame recruited him as columnist for the Tennessee-based Rockabilly Hall Of Fame.

While Otto Fuchs continued to write in German for the “Stompin’ News” magazine, the column for the Rockabilly Hall Of Fame is the first medium requiring him to write in his second language, English. During a trip to his former home, London (where he lived from 1997-1999), Otto Fuchs met

John Howard. Soon the two men come to the agreement that “UK Rock” (whose editor John Howard was, at that time) will publish his work as well. Otto Fuchs currently hosts the Internet

Radio Program “Rockabilly Rules OK” on Rockabilly Radio

(www.rockabilly-radio.net). And is back on Rock It Radio (www.rockitradio.net) with a new programme entitled "Rockin´ The Joint". As February 9th 2011 marked the 30th year of the death of Bill Haley, this book’s central purpose was to contribute to the continuation of Bill Haley’s legacy. This newly revised edition aims for the same goals and purposes in 2014, when the world celebrates sixty years since

the recording of “Rock Around The Clock”. 2015 is the sixtieth anniversary of "Rock Around The Clock" reaching Nr.1 on both the Billboard and Cashbox charts!
