Becoming possessed by the demon of rockabilly music can be a shock to your lifestyle. One day you've never heard of Elroy Ditzell. The next day you're listening to his records. The day after that you're dressing like him. There's no law that says it has to happen to everybody, but more often than not, it does.
But if your ultimate goal is to be crowned king or queen of rockabilly, you've missed the point altogether.
This whole scene is about having a great time and sharing the fun with everybody. No one person has more of a right to the music than any other. Please accept this open invitation: If the music moves you, join the riot and have a ball. - KM
