Issue #57 - Winter 2001/2002

 

 Blue Suede News music magazine #57 (winter 2001/'02). It features a story about Country music legend Hank Locklin, who wrote hits like "Send Me The Pillow You Dream On". He tells some great stories in this interview and there are several cool vintage photos. His son Hank Adam Locklin is following in his footsteps. If you like hillbilly and 40s and 50s country, the Zeke Turner story is very interesting, too. Oklahomabilly describes a festival in honor of Rockabilly queen Wanda Jackson. She played with old pal Big Al Downing. There is a story about the Krazy Kats, a hot Missouri combo that started in the late 50s with cool rockabilly and is still active today. There is also a story about Rockabilly, Blues and Country shows in Los Angeles with hot tips where to go and what to see (Big Sandy, Ray Campi). Rockabilly festival Hemsby #27 is reviewed, Charlie Gracie and Robert Gordon played it among others. Whatever happened to Bonnie Guitar ­ it's in here. There is a cool story about legendary blues harp player Rod Piazza. Also here is a photo collage of The Rockabilly Ball and other roots music shows in Seattle, including the Three Bad Jacks and Bill Kirchen (as part of the Twangbangers).

This issue of Blue Suede News "House Organ of the Church of Rock'n'Roll" has 68 pages and features articles/interviews/photos on pioneers of American Roots Music, and on those artists who are carrying on the traditions with a strong sense of roots. There also is a huge review section covering CDs, DVDs, books, videos, even sometimes vinyl records.
