Killer double shot with Jerry Lee Lewis, Linda Gail Lewis, Cash covers and more!

The Lewis family proves once again why they are such a force to be reckoned with as we hear a Killer double-shot from Jerry Lee and a rockin' tune from his sister, Linda Gail.  The only thing holding them back is there are only 88 keys on the piano and they rock every one of them!  We hear a couple of Cash covers from Reverend Horton Heat and Dion, plus some rockers from Stray Cats, Fats Domino, Charlie Gracie, Blue Plate Specials, Joe Clay covering Jack White and so much more!!

Johnny Cash was born this day in 1932

Johnny Cash was born on February 26th, 1932 in Kingsland, AR. His legacy and influence is far reaching.  He was elected in the Nashville Songwriters Hall Of Fame in 1977, the Country Music Hall Of Fame in 1980 and the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 1992.  While it would be impossible to post all of his hits, here's a brief snapshot into the career of The Man In Black.  RIP Johnny!

"Folsom Prison Blues"

"Get Rhythm"

"Boy Named Sue"

"Rusty Cage" (with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers)

California Dreamin' with The Beach Boys

The lyrics to the Mama's & Papa's smash hit "California Dreamin'" ring true especially for all dealing with a such a cold winter filled with an abundance of snow and ice this year.  In 1986, The Beach Boys recorded a stellar version of this for their greatest hits compilation, Made In The U.S.A.  Terry Melcher produced the track and it featured Roger McGuinn from The Byrds on 12-string guitar.  John Phillips and Michelle Phillips (from Mama's & Papa's) along with Roger appear in the Beach Boys' music video for the single.

This photo was taken during a break in filming.  Let the words and the warm harmonies heat things up and help you hold on for Spring!!

Buddy Holly & The Crickets record "That'll Be The Day" in 1957

Buddy Holly and The Crickets recorded their hit version of "That'll Be The Day" this day in 1957 in Clovis, NM.  The title was taken from a line in the John Wayne movie The Searchers.  Buddy had recorded a version a year earlier for Decca and was prohibited to re-record those songs under his name even if Decca didn't use them.  It's why this came out as "The Crickets" on Brunswick.  Buddy was also signed to a "solo" deal under Coral so recordings on that label came out under just Buddy's name.
