    Why, it must be Bono. Why else would he have a signature Falcon?

    Honestly, it makes as much sense as Jeff Beck...

    I know it's early in the thread but really, no Grady Martin mention yet?!
    When REAL Rockabilly is blaring in front of the speaker, Grady's standing behind them!

    Junior Barnard, tho he's mostly known for Western Swing, the man could seriously rock!

    Say what? Jeff Beck is a Rockabilly ripper when he wants to be.

     
  13. He’s a fighter, not a strummer.

    God Himself = Chuck Berry :



    Ah, OK : it's Rock'n'Roll, not Rockabilly...

    So my German pals from LUCKY 13, then :



    Annie on Bass, Thomas on Drums, Eddie on Guitar and Vocals.

    A+!
