I loved him back in the Stray Cats days and then forgot that he even existed. The other day I heard a snippet of Sleepwalk, you know the dreamy guitar piece that means someone in the cast is dead.
I found out that it was The Brian Setzer Orchestra and asked about it at the secondhand CD place. The young guy there said they get his CDs in but they never hang around and told me I should go and get the DVD of the band live in Japan and watch the second camera angle of Setzer playing Sleepwalk.
Well Lordy I must have played it ten times in a day. All closeups of the guitar and boy can he play. I won’t forget him next time great guitarist discussions begin.
Okay, retrace your steps. Where did you last see him? Did you check your coat pockets? Really don’t ask, if you can’t keep track of one Rockabilly musician, your father just won’t let you have that band you’ve been asking for.
Heh. I got back into him during my early swing-dancing days (almost ten years ago now), otherwise I probably would have no idea that he was still making music. Pretty good stuff, even though a lot of it is too fast to be really danceable.
