It's one for the money....

Sixty-nine years ago today, Carl Perkins was born in Tiptonville TN. It could be argued that Perkins was the greatest influence on the The Beatles, as John Lennon and George Harrison were both not only big fans, but imitators of his style...especially in the early days. In fact his style and influence far out weighed his actual chart action, but you cannot say, "Rockabilly" without thinking of Carl Perkins....I can't decide which video to play, and such a cast of players along with I'll play em' all....happy Saturday everyone!
