BILL HALEY's COMETS are planning to celebrate the 50th anniversary of their smash-hit ROCK AROUND THE CLOCK by recording a new album with British rock legend GRAHAM NASH.

The Crosby, STILLS + NASH star has signed up to produce the elderly backing band's new studio album, which will feature reworked versions of the group's biggest hits and revamped covers of tracks by the Beatles, The Who and Bob Dylan.

The Comets manager, MARTIN LEWIS, who is also planning a world tour for the group, who are all in the 70s and 80s, says, "The Beatles covered three of their tunes and so they're keen to return the favour - they'll record ONE AFTER 909, which was a track on the LET IT BE album.

"They also plan to cover Pete Townshend's SQUEEZEBOX and Dylan's FOREVER YOUNG, which will be sung by the Comets' 82-yearold drummer Dick Richards."

Meanwhile, Lewis is also planning a special one-off London concert with a host of stars they inspired.
