Articles and thoughts from the mind of Deke
Gene Vincent was an iconic rock and roller, with his tortured facial expressions, classic greasy coif, perfect cat clothes. And yet, from his very first session to his last, he loved to sing ballads.
Faron Young’s hillbilly boogie songs of the early and mid-1950s, with their braggadocio-laden lyrical content and aggressive boogie-woogie guitar-based sound, were highly influential to the new crop of rockabillies.
Johnny Paycheck spent years making a slew of brilliant honky-tonk, near-rockabilly, and stone country records, some of the best records he would ever make, under the forgotten nom de plume of Donny Young.
