Johnny Carroll !




Part of the original rockabilly movement in the 1950s, singer/guitarist Johnny Carroll issued several oft-overlooked yet classic singles for the Decca label, including such titles as "Crazy, Crazy Lovin," "Wild, Wild Women," and "Hot Rocks." Although he never truly obtained substantial success stateside, European rockabilly audiences revered Carroll. After falling off the rock & roll radar shortly after his '50s singles, Carroll emerged once again in 1974. He immediately recorded a tribute to Gene Vincent, "Gene Vincent Rock" (also issued under the title "The Black Leather Rebel"), following it up three years later with the full-length Texabilly, as well as a few other releases during the '80s. On January 13, 1995, Carroll passed away due to liver failure.

The alien monstermen from outer space always carry off earth women. In reality all life forms beyond Earth are happily homosexual so maybe they are seeking housekeepers.
