There are many rockabilly fans on this forum. The 21st century Irish artiste Imelda May credits Buddy Holly, Eddie Cochran and Gene Vincent as her influences, with a nod too towards Billie Holliday and Elmore James. Not only has she got a great voice, on her first 4 albums she also had a great guitarist, Darrel Higham. I recommend a listen to those 4 albums, as they are as authentic a set of 1950's rockabilly as any I've heard, and that includes the Stray Cats.
As an aside, on her most recent album there is a track called Black Tears. It came on the radio as I was driving, and I had to stop. Awesome.
