London Bass Guitar Show
I'd waited a long time to see Lee Rocker. I came close back in 2008 but the Stray Cats farewell show in Manchester was cancelled at the last minute. I did get to see two Stray Cats at Brian Setzer's 2011 Rockabilly Riot and I've been watching out for a UK visit by the third Cat ever since.
I was therefore delighted to see that the London Bass Guitar Show had pulled off an admirable coup in adding the rockabilly hero to their weekend. I booked a ticket immediately.

There was even the opportunity for a post-show chat with Lee and Buzz. Both were very friendly and approachable.
