Lee Rocker and the Stray Cats sold more than 10 million records, garnered an astounding 23 gold and platinum records worldwide, were music video pioneers of the MTV generation and secured their place in the history of rock and roll. The Stray Cats’ worldwide mega hits “Stray Cat Strut,” “Sexy and Seventeen” and “Rock this Town” have become a part of the fabric of rock and roll.
From the cover of Rolling Stone magazine, to appearing on “Saturday Night Live,” to touring with the Rolling Stones, Lee Rocker has seen and done it all. In addition to the Stray Cats, he has toured and performed with George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Willie Nelson, Leon Russell, Keith Richards and John Fogerty. As a member of the Rockabilly Hall of Fame, he is known for making his upright double bass appear as if it were a lightweight instrument as he spins, throws it in the air, catches and plays it on stages throughout the world.
