What exactly is "Rockabilly"? I'm interested in learning more about it, because everyone always refers to Brian Setzer as Rockabilly and I love his guitar.

early 50s 0rock and roll, taking in a lot of influence from blues, bluegrass and country

sounds about right to me.

you should check out some songs from these two rockabilly staples:
Gene Vincent - Be Bop a Lula
Eddie Cochrane - Summertime Blues, Come On Everybody, Cut Across Shorty, Twenty Flight Blues

I like:

Phobos (he oozes cool)


Misfits and AC/DC Covers + original recordings (jazz/punk, hardcore, "shredish").

My grandpa played rockabilly. He was on albums with Eddie Bond and others.

I like more modern psychobilly stuff to be honest, which you should check out as well as the old stuff (Carl Perkins, Elvis, Buddy Holly, etc.). Stuff phobos listed was good, and I also love Duane Eddy (don't know if he counts, but he's cool anyway) Psychobilly's like a rockabilly and punk hybrid generally with horror themed lyrics, but not necessarily in some cases (thought that's treading on being called punkabilly).

Here are some of my personal favorites:
http://www.myspace.com/reverendhortonheat - Guy's a legend. Can't wait to see him at Lollapalooza.
http://www.myspace.com/thebloodyhollys - Smaller, lesser-known band from California.
http://www.myspace.com/nekromantix - They're Danish. What else can I say.
http://www.myspace.com/batmobillly - Cool psychobilly from overseas.
http://www.myspace.com/tigerarmy - Blink 182 of psychobilly

And then of course there's The Meteors (the inventors of psychobilly), and maybe even The Cramps.

whoa, related to the greats... ....can i touch it?


all excellent bands listed. if you like rockabilly, you might as well just throw yourself head on into a lot of 50s rock 'n roll, i'm sure you'll dig it. i'm a fan of psychobilly as well, probably more than rockabilly. i've also done an acoustic cover of a Tiger Army song (which i think you know of primusfan).
