More About Rockabilly by Billy Poore
 
 
 
Overview
The "rebellious youth music" we know as rockabilly was born in the '50s and enjoyed a great revival in the '80s 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 lowdown on everyone from pioneers like Gene Vincent, Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Eddie Cochran and Charlie Feathers, to the next generation of stars like Link Wray, Dave Edmunds, Robert Gordon, Dwight Yoakam, The Blasters, 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 His uncensored stories and incredible unpublished photos deliver an inside look into the wild art of one of America's greatest inventions. The book is also a great reference guide, detailing artists' (from the legends to the one-hit wonders) chart activity, career milestones and tours. With its sentimental foreword by the late Danny Gatton, this book is a must-read for all fans of music and Americana!
