In December 1955, Carl Perkins wrote a song called, “Blue Suede Shoes.” It took the music scene by storm. In the years since then, dozens of artists have recorded “Blue Suede Shoes” – artists as diverse as Buddy Holly and Merle Haggard on the country side and on the pop/rock side – Black Sabbath, Jimi Hendrix and of course, the legendary Elvis Presley. In a chance encounter with this Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, he talked with me about the early days of rock, his experiences and career, and yes, his friendship with Elvis. He also shared a life philosophy — a leadership lesson from rock and roll — that could be a cautionary tale for any leader.
