From the cover of the Rolling Stone magazine, to appearing on Saturday Night Live, to headlining the 1983 US Festival and touring with the Rolling Stones, Lee Rocker has seen and done it all. Rocker made his mark singing, playing, standing on, spinning and rocking his giant upright bass as a founding member (along with Brian Setzer and Slim Jim Phantom), of the Grammy-nominated music group, The Stray Cats. They sold more than 10 million albums, garnered 23 gold and platinum certified records, and were music video pioneers of MTV. The Stray Cat’s worldwide mega hits “Stray Cat Strut,” “Sexy and Seventeen” and “Rock this Town” have become a part of the fabric of rock and roll. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has included “Rock this Town” as one of the 500 most important rock songs. In addition to The Stray Cats and the Rolling Stones, Rocker has toured and performed with George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Willie Nelson, Leon Russell, and John Fogerty. Rocker’s 40 years of performing around the globe have attracted a fanatically loyal following of rockers, rebels and music lovers. His concert show is also a time for sharing colorful stories about his days on the road and in the music business over these past four decades.
