Rockabilly: The Twang Heard 'Round the World: The Illustrated History

Post by andrew666 on Fri Apr 15, 2011 7:29 pm

Coming next month is Michael Dregni's "Rockabilly: The Twang Heard 'Round the World: The Illustrated History"



This has to be the book for all rockabilly enthusiasts. Here’s the story of Elvis Presley’s first Sun recordings. And here’s Carl Perkins also, Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, and many more rockabillies from the golden years of 1955–1959. But the story doesn't end there of course and Michael's book brings us up to date with a rockabilly revival that began with the Stray Cats and Robert Gordon, spreading around the world from Europe to Japan. Today, rockabilly is better than ever, with bands like Rev. Horton Heat and others playing the music and living the life from Memphis to Helsinki to Tokyo.
