Description
Rockin' (The Rockabilly Scene) For enthusiasts, rockabilly isn't just a kind of music; it's a way of life. A raw fusion of rhythm and blues with country and western, rockabilly heralded the start of teenage rebellion in America in the early 1950s. The stripped-down sound witnessed a revival in the 1970s that has continued until today, with modern rockabillies embracing not only the music, but also the clothes, cars and lifestyle of the 1950s youth counterculture. Rockin' is photographer Andrew Shaylor's unique portrayal of the contemporary rockabilly scene. Granted exclusive access at events on both sides of the Atlantic, Shaylor captures the raw energy of the music and the commitment of the rockabilly community to authenticity. Featuring the history of the subculture by rockabilly legend Jerry Chatabox, this striking book evokes the passion and intensity of a scene that is as exciting today as it was more than 50 years ago.

  • Rockin' (The Rockabilly Scene)

    Here is a very small selection of images from my latest book. It was published last spring (2011) and was a complete joy to put together. The rockabilly crowd are a very happy, vibrant and welcoming group of people that get together and party on a regular basis. It was a treat to visit this scene both in the UK and the USA. I really enjoyed my road trip through states like Alabama and Tennessee in search of the roots of rockabilly, and then into parts of the west coast where the scene is more Latin in flavour. The strength of the scene appears to have shifted to Europe and in particular to the UK. The book is published by Merrell Publishers.
