Only three people born since "Blue Suede Shoes" hit the charts have managed to follow Elvis Presley and his '50s peers to stardom by playing rockabilly music. Lee Rocker is one of them. He was still in his teens back in 1980, when he and his band mates in the Stray Cats--Brian Setzer and Slim Jim Phantom--began scoring hits with a musical style that had gone out of fashion before the Kennedy Administration began.

His new album with the re-formed Stray Cats bombed; he's fed up with his record label, rock critics, contemporary radio and varied other constants of life; he's tired of being underrated as a guitarist while new metal bands ("that can't even play!") fill arenas; he got held up for hours in border traffic the previous night returning from a club gig in Tijuana; and he's running out of room for new tattoos. So why does Brian Setzer sound so darned happy?
