Ralph Jones (III) (1921–2000)

Ralph Jones became the drummer for Bill Haley and the Comets in late 1955, after a career that included playing in a number of jazz groups. He stayed with the band until 1960. An avid home movie buff, Jones' camera captured many moments of Bill Haley's golden years in the 1950s. In the mid-1990s, Jones survived major heart surgery. See full bio »
