I think I see what's going on here. :)

The style of music now known as rock and roll did indeed evolve from R&B as I said.

However the phrase "rock and roll" was a slang term for sexual intercourse and showed up now and then in music of various other genres.

Since most rock musicians consider it a sign that they made it when they get parodies by Weird Al, and Alan Sherman was a predecessor and influence on Weird Al, would Alan Sherman belong on this thread?

No.

But not because he's bad.

Because he was too late to be a predecessor.

But he mostly made fun of folkies not rockers.
