Very cool blsabob! I love Rockabilly, and Brian Setzer is one of the most under-rated guitarists around.

"All Rock n Roll guitarists stand on the shoulders of the giants, Gene Vincent and Eddie Cochran."

That is try to a certain extent, but you also have to consider the great blues guitarists such as Muddy Waters, BB King, and Chuck Berry. These guys inspired the great British guitar players of the 60's.
