Orbison/Cash/Lewis/Perkin - Class Of '55 Memphis..
Roy Kelton Orbison (April 23, 1936 - December 6, 1988), nicknamed 'The Big O', was an influential American singer-songwriter and a pioneer of rock and roll, whose recording career spanned more than four decades. By the mid-1960s Orbison was internationally recognized for his ballads of lost love, rhythmically advanced melodies, three-octave vocal range, characteristic dark sunglasses, and sometimes distinctive usage of falsetto, typified in songs such as 'Only the Lonely, 'Oh, Pretty Woman', and 'Crying'. His career stagnated through the 1970s, but several covers of his songs and the use of 'In Dreams' in David Lynch's Blue Velvet revived his career in the 1980s. In 1988, he joined the supergroup Traveling Wilburys with George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, and Jeff Lynne and also released a new solo album. He died of a heart attack in December that year, at the zenith of his resurgence. His life was marred by tragedy, including the death of his first wife and his two eldest sons in separate accidents. In 1989, he was inducted posthumously into the National Academy of Popular Music/Songwriters Hall of Fame. Rolling Stone placed Orbison at number 37 on their list of The Greatest Artists of All Time, and number 13 on their list of The 100 Greatest Singers of All Time.
John R. 'Johnny' Cash (February 26, 1932 - September 12, 2003) was an American singer-songwriter, actor, and author who was considered one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. Although he is primarily remembered as a country music icon, his songs and sound spanned other genres including rockabilly and rock and roll—especially early in his career—and blues, folk, and gospel. This crossover appeal won Cash the rare honor of induction in the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and the Gospel Music Hall of Fame.
Cash was known for his deep, distinctive bass-baritone voice, for the 'boom-chicka-boom' sound of his Tennessee Three backing band; for a rebelliousness, coupled with an increasingly somber and humble demeanor; for providing free concerts inside prison walls; and for his dark performance clothing, which earned him the nickname 'The Man in Black'. He traditionally began his concerts with the phrase 'Hello, I'm Johnny Cash.', followed by his standard 'Folsom Prison Blues'.
Much of Cash's music echoed themes of sorrow, moral tribulation and redemption, especially in the later stages of his career. His best-known songs included 'I Walk the Line', 'Folsom Prison Blues', 'Ring of Fire', 'Get Rhythm' and 'Man in Black'. He also recorded humorous numbers like 'One Piece at a Time' and 'A Boy Named Sue'; a duet with his future wife, June Carter, called 'Jackson'; and railroad songs including 'Hey, Porter' and 'Rock Island Line'. During the last stage of his career, Cash covered songs by several late 20th-century rock artists, most notably 'Hurt' by Nine Inch Nails.
Is there an early rock & roller who has a crazier reputation than the Killer, Jerry Lee Lewis(born September 29, 1935)? His exploits as a piano-thumping, egocentric wild man with an unquenchable thirst for living have become the fodder for numerous biographies, film documentaries, and a full-length Hollywood movie. Certainly few other artists came to the party with more ego and talent than he and lived to tell the tale. And certainly even fewer could successfully channel that energy into their music and prosper doing it as well as Jerry Lee.
Lewis has had a dozen gold records in both rock and country, won several Grammy awards, including a Lifetime Achievement Award. Lewis was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986, and his pioneering contribution to the genre has been recognized by the Rockabilly Hall of Fame. In 2003, Rolling Stone listed his box set All Killer, No Filler: The Anthology number 242 on their list of '500 Greatest Albums of All Time'. In 2004, they ranked him number 24 on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time. Lewis is the last surviving member of Sun Records' Million Dollar Quartet and the Class of '55 album, which also included Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Roy Orbison and Elvis Presley.
Carl Lee Perkins (April 9, 1932 - January 19, 1998) was an American rockabilly musician who recorded most notably at Sun Records Studio in Memphis, Tennessee, beginning in 1954. His best-known song is 'Blue Suede Shoes'. According to Charlie Daniels, 'Carl Perkins' songs personified the rockabilly era, and Carl Perkins' sound personifies the rockabilly sound more so than anybody involved in it, because he never changed'. Perkins' songs were recorded by artists (and friends) as influential as Elvis Presley, the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, and Johnny Cash, which further cemented his place in the history of popular music. Paul McCartney even claimed that 'if there were no Carl Perkins, there would be no Beatles'.Called 'the King of Rockabilly', he was inducted into the Rock and Roll, the Rockabilly, and the Nashville Songwriters Halls of Fame; and was a Grammy Hall of Fame Award recipient.
