I was surprised to see J Geils Band come out in 1982 with pop hits as they were well respected as a hard core jamming rock and Blues band.

The set list is interesting as they did their new big hits first and then got in to some hard core jamming with "Whammer Jammer" and others.

The Stones Meet the Stray Cats







          
          
             Patti, Keith, Charlie, Mick & Jerry waiting for the Stray Cats



The Stray Cats in London 1980



Rockabilly was born in 1954, in the Sun Studios of Memphis, where Elvis Presley and
guitarist Scotty Moore and bassist Bill Black invented the rocking hillbilly blues. It was
then propagated by such fiery evangels as Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, the crippled Gene
Vincent and the Burnette brothers, Johnny and Dorsey. One could go on. But by decade’s end,
the music had virtually disappeared, withered by death and personal disasters and
commercially minded career detours. Rockabilly was gone before it ever really had a chance
to go anywhere. But its legacy of rock-cat style was never completely extinguished. Bands
like the Beatles and Clearwater Revival tended the flame in the Sixties; such revivalists
as Robert Gordon, the Cramps appeared in the Seventies; and as recently as 1980, the
British art-rock group Queen scored a hit with a stripped-down rockabilly cop titled “Crazy
Little Thing Called Love.”

The Stray Cats is a rockabilly band which formed in 1980 in Massapequa, New York, United
States. The band consists of Brian Setzer (vocals, guitar), Lee Rocker (bass) and Slim Jim
Phantom (drums).

The Stray Cats landed at a time when music was changing, says Larry Morgan, assistant music
director at KRTH (101.1 FM). Punk music was still in its infancy, and pop music was edging
into more electronic sounds and keyboards.

“Here came this kind of throwback sound, but it wasn’t nostalgic. There was this edge and
danger to it,” Morgan adds. “They were great musicians, and the songs were really fun and
catchy and great to move to. In a way, those songs still sound very fresh.”

By June 1980, The Stray Cats were ready for a change. “Rock & roll was definitely not at
its peak,” says Setzer. “And disco music had obliterated any kind of live entertainment.”

The band scraped up the money for some one-way tickets, packed up a guitar, a bass and a
drum, and flew off to England. Cold. Lee Rocker was 17 when he and his childhood friends in
The Stray Cats decided to leave New York for London.

Fortunately, rockabilly music had never really died in England. Bill Haley and Gene Vincent
had worked there for years past their prime. Suddenly, here were three real rockabilly
kids, playing their own songs in the hallowed style. At last.

At first, they spent their days knocking on doors and their nights sleeping in all-night
movies, or in Hyde Park. Finally, they got their first gig — opening for the Fabulous
Poodles. More jobs followed. Soon the record companies came sniffing around. The band
signed a deal (for everywhere but North America) with Arista Records, home of the dreaded

Barry Manilow. Setzer explains: “We were at a party one night with one of the guys from
Arista, throwing Barry Manilow records out the window, and he was laughing — he thought it
was great! We thought, wow, this is the record company for us.”

All they needed was a producer. It was a short-lived lack. “We played a show at the Venue,”
Jim says. “Afterward, we walked backstage, and there was this guy in the back room drinkin’
the vodka. We said, ‘Who the hell is this? Get him outta here,’ you know? They said it was
Dave Edmunds. I had his records, but I never really knew what he looked like. He approached
us and said, ‘I gotta work with you guys before a modern-type producer gets his hands on
you and kills your sound.’ “

Setzer said, “Yeah, we agree.”

                
                  
                              Slim Jim Phantom on drums

Dave Edmunds, a noted expert on the rockabilly sound, took the Stray Cats into a tiny
London studio and started recording them. In November 1980, they released their first
single, “Runaway Boys”; it crashed into the British Top Ten, as did its 1981 followups,

“Stray Cat Strut” and “Rock This Town.” The Stray Cats were the talk of the city. Their
faces — and, of course, their clothes. Their self-titled debut album was an international
smash, going Top Ten in Britain and creating a sensation on the Continent.

The Stray Cats’ vintage sound apparently stirred fond memories in many older rock stars,
too. When the band played the northern industrial town of Birmingham, Led Zeppelin’s Robert
Plant brought his wife and daughter out to see them. Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and
Charlie Watts went to a gig at the Venue,



Keith inviting Stray Cat Brian Setzer to come over for a jam!


Richards even left Brian a phone number for his country house and invited him to drop in
for a jam. “I called him later, and he said, ‘Come on over.’ It was just an impromptu jam.

He picked a guitar off the floor, like a ’58 Les Paul, and he started doin’ these Scotty
Moore licks, ‘Baby, Let’s Play House’ and stuff. And he did them exact, you know. I mean,
he knows all that stuff. We played all night.”

Still, Setzer and company couldn’t believe it when the Stones invited them to be the
opening act for three shows on their 1981 North American tour. “I was in awe,” Brian
admits. “That was an honor, to be on that tour.” Jim agrees: “I was on cloud nine. I just
kept pinchin’ myself, you know, makin’ sure — ‘Hey, am I really up here with the Rolling
Stones, or am I gonna wake up any minute in Massapequa (NY where he grew-up?) “

The Stray Cats’ exposure on the Stones’ tour helped make their first British album a big
import seller. The band returned to the U.S. and signed a deal with EMI-America Records,
released "Built for Speed", an LP drawn largely from their two British albums. The Stray
Cats then embarked on an intensive U.S. tour, backed up by heavy video exposure on MTV.

"Built for Speed" sold steadily throughout the summer and by fall had entered the Top Ten,
as had their first U.S. single, “Rock This Town.” By January, after thirty weeks on the
Billboard charts, the album had sold nearly 2 million copies.

The Stones Meet the Stray Cats Continued




Guitarist and co-songwriter with the Ruts, Paul "Foxy" Fox stops by to talk to Charlie as
two body guards spring up to protect the Stones.
Paul Fox later joined the Dirty Strangers.



“Over the years Paul Fox has performed and recorded with many of
the world’s greatest musicians but he will mainly be remembered for his
revolutionary punk/dub reggae fusion guitar playing with influential punk band
The Ruts.

The Ruts, who came together in 1977, were among the best of the second wave of
British punk bands, inspired by the likes of the Sex Pistols and the Clash.

Like many in that second wave, the Ruts hailed not from the art school milieu
of the first wave but from the London suburbs. Decent musicians, they had
schooled themselves in jazz-funk and pub rock. Fox played a pivotal songwriting role,
and quickly became a model punk guitarist at a time when the
three-chord thrash was the height of many of his contemporaries' ambitions. "The Crack"
showcased his menacing, often haunting, style to great effect, but
also revealed his versatility; he was a lover of reggae and could switch styles with ease.

with Fox sharing some of the vocals - until late 1982, after the release of the
patchy Animal Now album, and the dub reggae Rhythm Collision that further
enhanced Fox's credentials.

Fox later joined a west London band called Dirty Strangers, which he freely
described as "a budget-priced Rolling Stones"; they recorded two albums on
which Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood guested. Richards was a fan - they toured
together briefly in the US - and Fox was also openly admired by the likes of
Pete Townshend and Jimmy Page."

The Rolling Stones American Tour In 1981 Set A Record That Would Stand For 33 Years


JUNE 26, 2019
by: RANDY SAVOIE

It’s the Summer of ’81 and Keith Richards, attired in a black
bomber jacket, black t-shirt, black jeans and blue suede boots, strides into
the rural Massachusetts recording studio basement—Long View Farm—with
a copy of the Neville Brothers Fiyo on the Bayou in his hand. He slides the
cassette into the stereo and proclaims it “the best album of the year”
to Rolling Stone journalist Kurt Loder, who is sitting nearby.

“An exhilarating feast of rolling, New Orleans-style R&B,” Loder wrote. “Keith
poured himself a tumbler of Jack Daniels. I grabbed a bottle of red wine and
we settled at a table to soak in Aaron Neville’s breathtaking rendition of the
ancient doo-wop classic, ‘The Ten Commandments of Love.’”

Just a few months later, Richards’ beloved Neville Brothers would open for the
Rolling Stones at the Louisiana Superdome—the Stones’ first U.S. tour in three
years.

Sitting in his office in California, legendary concert promoter Bill Graham
searches for the answer as he puts together The Rolling Stones American Tour
1981.

“New Orleans was a tough one because I had to make a decision as to whether we
should play there or go to Baton Rouge to the university stadium,” Graham said
in his 1990 auto-biography My Life Inside Rock and Roll. “The history of rock
and roll shows in New Orleans was not all that great. I decided to go for it
and do the Superdome.” It’s a gamble that would pay historic dividends.

Over in Tennessee, Pat Adams and his friend hear that the Stones will be
playing at the Superdome in New Orleans and purchase a pair of tickets at a
Nashville record store for the princely sum of $18.50 each. They start up the
car for the all-night drive to the Crescent City. “We made it to New Orleans
the next morning. We checked into the hotel, rested up a bit and headed to the
concert. We got there early and were among the first people to get into the
Superdome,” Adams writes on his website www.tennesseeconcerts.com. “We
enjoyed walking up the ramps and checking out this massive venue, eventually
ending up on the floor level when the concert began.”

The larger-than-life stage was the handiwork of Japanese designer Kazuhide
Yamazaki. “We had the bright, bright primary colors and we had these enormous
images of a guitar, a car and a record (and an American flag),” Mick Jagger
recalled in a 2003 interview.

Back then, there was no reserved seating. It was all general admission seating—
first come, first served. If you secured a spot near the front of the stage,
you could not leave to go to concession stands because you would never get
your place back. The Neville Brothers opened the show followed by George
Thorogood & The Destroyers. “Both acts were great. They flashed up a sign that
the concert had set a record for the largest indoor concert ever held with
87,500 people,” remembers Pat Adams.

Then, it was time for the main event. Jagger gyrated onstage clad in a red
Hawaiian shirt and yellow football pants. They opened with the 1960’s hit
“Under My Thumb” as the crowd rocked back and forth and the force of it
separated friends in the front rows as the pandemonium unfolded. An anonymous
fan said, “Standing on the Superdome floor front and center five rows back,
the sound was incredible. With all of the crowding and pushing, I had long
been separated from my brother and sister. During ‘Under My Thumb,’ my sister
was on the front row being forced against the plywood barricade. She remembers
looking at Keith Richards who was standing 15 feet from her. The Stones
security guards thought she was going to pass out, so they pulled her over the
barricade and threw her under the stage. They then threw her back into the
audience.”

The Stones would proceed to play for two and a half hours. “First time I heard
them play ‘Let It Bleed’ live,” remembers a fan. “They played many songs from
their 1981 album Tattoo You and the 1978 album Some Girls. Before ‘You Can’t
Always Get What You Want,’ Jagger yelled, ‘We’re going to need your help on
this next song. New Orleans, can you sing?’ At the end, all of the lights came
on and they blew the lid off the Dome.

Bill Graham’s gamble on New Orleans had paid off.

“We went into the record books for doing the biggest balloon drop in the
history of an indoor closed stadium,” remembered the late Graham. “Since we
had a few days off, I decided New Orleans was the ideal spot to throw a middle-
of-the-tour crew party. We got Paul Prudhomme, the great Cajun chef, to cater a
party for us on this beautiful paddlewheel steamer (SS President). I invited
all the local musicians—the Meters and Allen Toussaint and Professor Longhair
and a lot of local Cajun musicians. Nine hundred people on the boat and we
danced all night and it was a great party.”

Roger that, Roger!

I removed all of your photos. I'm very disappointed and sad since obviously I love your work. I'm you biggest fan! I wish I could buy the photos.

Your name and websites were well posted all over the photos giving you plenty of credit and advertisement and direction to your websites. I thought I was promoting you and your great work. Sincere apologies.

Sorry I didn't post links like you do. I thought that topic of who you are and your websites were well covered over and over. The only ones to get more press than you are the Stones themselves! With well over 300,000 hits on this thread, just know that sharing your photos online gave many people much enjoyment and you much advertising to you make you a household name among Stones fans. Thanks for sharing.
