Firstly, I'm not one of those who blindly listens to most of the bands/artists which influenced the Great Moz, but I kinda like Jobriath and Ludus.

Anyway, I was listening to some 50's & 60's rockabilly and pop and thought of giving a listen to Billy Fury, who I had already heard lots of things about but never took the time to look for any of his songs.
And what do you know- I love it!
Haven't heard much yet, just 5 or 6 songs, but I'll be definitely searching for more about his music.
As I adore those oldies-style Morrissey ballads, Billy's "In my room" (he even mentions Wilde in the lyrics) quite moved me, I almost shed a tear...

Rambling over.

Happy New Year to you all.

Yeah, Eddie Cochran was great as well (I'm more familiar with his music).
Do you know him?

Here's a pic of Eddie to brighten this forum.

If you want some rockabilly Billy Fury pick up "Sound Of Fury," it's ace!

I'm on to it already. I am searching for it later.
But I admit I like the mellower stuff better.
Thanks for the tip.
