It's Rockabilly Sunday. Why says you. Why not says me.
The Lonesome Drifter was born, on December 6, 1931 on a cotton farm in north Louisiana. As a youth, He worked as a water boy for the cotton pickers on a plantation and recalls hearing his first blues music while watching an old black man playing a slack string guitar out side of an old country General Store. Other musical influences included Jimmie Rodgers Bill Monroe, and Bluegrass Music was the foundation of his style.If you have never heard the Lonesome Drifter, you have missed out on life. This is true Rockabilly heaven.
