There are four Rockabilly bands I'll ALWAYS hold in high regards. Not because they sold records. Not because they're examples of the "traditionalist" sound, but because they personified the spirits of Rock N' Roll, put the pedal to the metal and never looked back. 1.) Ronnie Hawkins and the Hawks. Mostly for the single "Bo Diddley/Who Do You Love?" that was released on Roulette. Roy Buchanan, Pat Travers, Levon Helm (and the rest of The Band) and Lonnie Mack all appeared in this group, which mixed the Sun Rockabilly style with the rising Blues-Rock vein. 2.) Jerry Lee Lewis. While his Sun stuff was great, the one that REALLY knocks it out of the park is that FEROCIOUS record "Live at the Star Club 1964." Sheer explosive potential. Only way they could make it moreso would be to press the record into a C4 explosive. Also features the Nashville Teens, who would later be famous for "Tobacco Road" 3.) Sonny Burgess & the Pacers. One of the dynamite live acts that came from Arkansas (so did Ronnie Hawkins & the ...
Joe Lee passed away Monday of this week. Known by many as "Papa Joe", he owned Papa Joes records and tapes in Jonesboro in the heyday of the Record business. More famously , Joe owned Variety Recording , home of Alley Records. He was producer,engineer, musician, general collaborator and inspiration guy. He recorded many artists some of whom became quite successful and famous including ... Bobby Lee Trammel, Narvel Felts, Charlie Rich, Scotty Moore, Ace Cannon, The World Famous Sabers, Sonny Burgess and the Legendary Pacers, The Fabulous Esquires, blues legend Willie Bloom, Jim Messina, Ray Coble, Knowbody Else aka Black Oak Arkansas, The Joe Lee Combo, The Bill Black Combo, Larry Donn Gillahan, The New Castle Blues, The 1932 Ballroom Blues, Jamie Holmes, The Tuesday Blues, and God only knows how many I'm leaving out, because I just can't think of them all. Joe was an accomplished jazz sax player and musician... And somewhere in there he was a band director in Trumann, Arkansas. Visit ...

Listening to my fave Radio prog, Bob Harris Country, BBC Rad2 Thurs 7Pm, (as well as Del Richardsons' "Good Rockin' Tonite" Tues 7pm Caroline, of course). Bob started with Dale Watsons' " Johnnys' at the Door" started me wondering what is everyones' favourite Johnny Cash song, lately mine is " The night Hank Williams came to Town". It paints such a beautifull picture of how it must have been, living in small town America with the excitement of the biggest music star of the day coming to town. I can relate it to when the Beatles came to Plymouth and I managed to get a ticket outside and walked right in. But how I would love to be able to time travel and go back and see Hank, Elvis, Scotty and Bill, Gene Vincent, Sonny Burgess, Johnny Mason and all those good rockin' guys play live in their day. Meanwhile I'm really hoping that I will be able to get into The Ace Café on Saturday to see the Fab Dale Watson do his thing in a great venue right here in London. So what is YOUR fave Johnny Cash song?
Response from fellow Texas Artists about my new single DONE."Love it!" - Pat Green "Thumbs Up!" - Stoney LaRue "Sound good! Feisty!" - Josh Abbott "Love it! Sangin' your tail off!" - Sonny Burgess "I love me a goodbye song" - Bo Phillips Band What's your quote?
Just got off the phone with Sun artist Sonny Burgess. He interviewed me for his radio show for the upcoming concert I'm playing in Jonesboro in March. My band will be the opening act and will feature Stan Perkins, the son of Carl Perkins, Sonny Burgess and The Pacers and Narvel Felts.
A last minute show has just come up. I'll be performing at the White Elephant Saloon (106 East Exchange St.) in the Ft.

If you're in the area, come on by. HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL!

Elvis - october 24 1955 Together with Sonny Burgess, Elvis performed in "The Silver Moon Club" New Port, Arkansas. 1956 Elvis had to leave for New York, but before that he, his parents and Juan Juanico attended a special screening of a rough cut of Love Me Tender. Except for Elvis everyone was enthusiastic. Elvis however was not satisfied by his acting. 1959 Elvis was again hospitalised in the 97th General Hospital in Frankfort for tonsillitis. 1961 Elvis had to attend a music meeting after which he was introduced to some fighters, to choose someone as his double in Kid Galahad. 1976 Elvis performed at the Roberts Stadium, Evansville, Indiana at 8:30 p.m. The crowd was 13500 and Elvis wore "Chief" suit with the second belt.
