I don't get how some guy from Europe gets the title "Mr. Rockabilly"!
George just gave me that title ... I don't really care about it.
But let me tell you this: this whole rock'n'roll thing started in the USA some 60 years ago, and we all know that it's almost everywhere now, not only in Oklahoma City. I neither call myself an expert nor Mr Rockabilly. But I started recording in 1989 and I was always interested in 50's/60's recording techniques. Until now I have recorded quite a few rock'n'roll, rockabilly, country, western swing and rhythm'n'blues acts, among others. I was born in the 70's, but I do know how the 50's sounded like, and I'm getting closer everyday.
Besides that, you're right with your other posts!
And by the way, I'm from Switzerland, not Germany.
