Estate and Brand Management Firm to Preserve and Extend the Father of Rock 'n' Roll's Legacy

ALG Brands ("ALG") has signed an exclusive, worldwide representation agreement with the estate of music legend Bill Haley, it was announced on December 29, 2018 by ALG COO Scott Austin.

ALG will provide comprehensive management services for the estate, including brand partnerships, oversight of the licensing of Mr. Haley's music and personality rights and administration of official digital and social media assets. 

ALG will work in tandem with entertainment estate attorney Ken Abdo of Fox Rothschild LLP to preserve Mr. Haley's legacy and perpetuate awareness of his music catalog and life story.

ALG recently brokered a deal with producers Scott Mednick (U2 3D, Superman Returns, 300) and Skyler Mednick to develop a feature film surrounding the life and career of Mr. Haley, with an authorized biography about the late rocker being penned by published scholar David Deacon-Joyner.
"The Haley family is tremendously excited about our relationship with ALG," Pedro Haley, estate trustee and son of Bill Haley, said. "Having the veteran industry professionals of ALG as our advocates will go a long way in garnering long-overdue credit for the Father of Rock and Roll. We can't wait to work hand-in-hand with ALG to search out new and fruitful opportunities."
"Bill Haley is one of the most important figures in modern music history," ALG COO Scott Austin said. "His innovative approach to blending country, western and R&B helped birth a new genre of music. ALG is honored to have the opportunity to work with Mr. Haley's estate to identify new initiatives that assist in the preservation of his legacy and the continued discovery of his music by future generations."
Widely respected as a pioneer of the rock 'n' roll movement, Bill Haley has been dubbed "The Father of Rock 'n' Roll," recording a string of music hits in the 1950s including "(We're Gonna) Rock Around The Clock," "See You Later Alligator," "Shake, Rattle and Roll," and more.

Born William John Clifton Haley, Haley was a member of several groups including The Downhomers, Bill Haley and The Four Aces of Swing, and Bill Haley and the Saddlemen, but it was with Bill Haley and His Comets that Haley changed music history. 

Haley was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987, and "(We're Gonna) Rock Around The Clock" was inducted into the Library of Congress' National Recording Registry in 2018.
