Rockabilly 101
It's true that there is nothing new in rock, only creative amalgamations of what has gone before. This may be the case in the 2000's, with the reworking of New Wave and Garage Rock, but it was also true 50 years ago with the birth of rock and roll. Add frenetic hillbilly to boogie woogie piano, soul shouters and the electrified guitar, and rockabilly was the natural result.
