    Ahh psychobilly....I dunno I've never been to a PB show where you can understand anything anyone is singing.
    Just saw once again the Roy Orbison PBS special again. Great guy, great singer.

    I went to ye olde guitar store the other day, and on a whim deviated from my normal Paul Reed Smith fetish to try out some Gretsches. HOLY SHIT. They rock. I tried a Setzer model, a Chet Atkins Country Gentlemen, and some assorted white falcons and 6120s. They won't handle heavy distortion the way I require, but man! That clean tone was so crisp and bright while retaining hollowbody fullness.

    Love Setzer, btw. And his thick, plucky, overdriven Gretsch tone!

    Rockabilly is good stuff!
    From childhood, I love Carl perkins, but as an adult, I added D.J. Bonebrake/Knitters and Setzer. :)

    Do The Eagles count sort of? I mean, their music is somewhat rooted in rockabilly if you look long and hard enough.

    SoCal has a fantastic harder genre of Rockabilly..... some mixed in like Social Distortion, but other great bands like Deadbolt (The Scariest Band in the World).... love the lineup, with two dudes on bass:

    HARLEY DAVIDSON: Voodoo Guitar, Vocals
    R.A. MACLEAN: Bass, Vocals
    3RD DEGREE BURNS: Bass, Vocals
    BADTIME CHARLIE: Drums
    PATCHES: Unknown

    the Hootenanny festival in OC, Royal Crown Revue, X (they dipped a bit), Road Kill Kings, and a slew I know I'm missing.

    How about some rockabilly blended w/that delicious and potent variant known as western swing? How about the now defunct Cave Catt Sammy orthe Two Timin' Three. Love the Chops Tops also.
