Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The "rebellious youth music" we know as rockabilly was born in the '50s and enjoyed a great revival in the '80s and '90s. This book is a straight-from-the-heart account of how the genre's greatest artists - author Billy Poore's personal friends - made their mark. Billy gives the low-down on everyone from pioneers like Gene Vincent, Elvis Presley, Eddie Cochran and Charlie Feathers, to the next generation of stars like Link Wray, Dave Edmunds, The Stray Cats and BR5-49, to the unlikely artists who have been influenced by rockabilly, including Conway Twitty and The Beatles. His uncensored stories and incredible unpublished photos deliver an inside look into the wild art of one of America's greatest inventions.
