Thanks, PC31 for the history. It's amazing the circles these boys traveled in, even before they were really good!
I read that Eddie Cochrane history on one of your other posts as well. I like rockabilly a lot, and it's been really fun to see how it helped define the Beatles. My favorite album right now is the BBC one, LOTS of early influences there, it's just so cool to see how they took 'em in, made 'em their own, and then moved on.
