"This is one of the best books I've ever seen about rockabilly history. Its layout is dripping with 230 colorfull informative pages containing comments, quotes and interviews. You will be impressed with its photographs of artists, posters, guitars, record labels, etc. It is reasonably priced and I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves rockabilly music ... whether you are a veteran fan, a collector, or one who is new to this genre."

The legendary guitarist was saluted May 3, 2008 as the lastest "Nashville Cat" at
the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville.
Also known as one of "The Memphis Boys", Reggie is
acknowledged as one of the great guitarists in popular music history. He lent
his guitar to the rockabilly explosion in the mid-1950s (with Eddie Bond); Memphis'
hit-producing American Studio in the 1960s; and the expansion of Nashville's recording scene
in the 1970s. His guitar work can be heard on Dobie Gray's "Drift Away," Waylon
Jennings' "Luckenbach, Texas," Wille Nelson's "Always on My Mind" and Reba McEntire's
"Little Rock," the Elvis Memphis Sessions among hundreds of others. Photo: Rockabilly Hall of Fame
One of the highlights of the recent "Northest Rockin' Festival in the World"

every second of it. Marti was thrilled afterwards, and stated that she's always been a
huge Robert Gordon fan. Also pictured, guitarist Marco Di Maggio.
