You WISH you could be this cool!

At 75, on Sunday Aug 2nd, one of the coolest dudes of all time passed on. He was on Sun Records at the same time as Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis and Johnny Cash - he recorded this and Flying Saucer Rock n Roll and many a great Rockabilly gem. Here he is at 69 performing at the Old Style Weekend - this cat still hadn't ,missed a beat. Most guys are not this cool at 28 much less 69 - R.I.P. you great cat - Billy Lee Riley. Everybody, lets try to learn how to be cool from this dude. His obits are HERE and HERE - or you could just listen to the Rockabilly swing below - which is prob what he'd want you to do! Go on Cat!
