Part two of a rockabilly series on the side of my other rockabilly series, the first one of this series being "Mentally Unstable, Petty Little Sawdust Ceasars". This one details the rockabilly revival of the 70's on thru the 80's up to now and it's still going pretty strong.

Throughout most of the 60's rockabilly went kind of underground, but in the 70's there developed an interest in the 50's and rockabilly in particular. I'm not sure what the catalyst was but the evidence can be seen in movies like Grease and American Grafitti and their respective spin off t.v. shows.

An Italian immigrant named Ronnie Wieser, who grew up listening to American rock 'n' roll eventually came to America in the lat 60's and couldn't believe his eyes. This wasn't the America he heard about or got a feeling from in the music he he set about bringing it back. Rockin' Ronnie started Rollin' Rock records in the 70's, with a few new groups, most notably , The Blasters and he also found quite a few old timers, driving buses, trading commodities, data processing. He dusted them off and was responsible for quite a few people having second careers 15-20 years after their original brushes with fame. I think I've got most of the heavy hitters here. Thanks once again to Sean Lally and Joey De Vivre for selected tracks.

By the way, I think you'll look long and hard to find a better early 80s American band than the Blasters. Man, they was great.

Link Wray was super.

Heavy hitters indeed! You're still my hero man. Too bad the camera didn't pick up on the blood dripping from your power chord hand.
