Coddington died at Presbyterian Intercommunity Hospital in suburban Whittier at 6:20 a.m. Wednesday. His La Habra office spokeswoman Amanda Curry wouldn't disclose the cause of death.

Coddington, who started building cars when he was 13 and once operated a gas station in Utah, set a standard for his workmanship and creativity, with his popular "Cadzilla" creation considered a design masterpiece. The customized car based on a 1950s Cadillac  ... continue reading

Billy Lee Riley - Heart attack
Billy Lee Riley has had a really bad heart attack. He was in a Little Rock hospital for a hip operation, and had the attack while he was there. He had five arteries blocked, four at 97% blockage, and one a little less. After the heart operation, fluid began to build up in his chest cavity, and a blood clot developed, so they had to open him up again and fix that. Right now, he is still asleep, but everything is stable. The doctors say after the next 24 hours, they'll know more, but if nothing else happens, and he remains stable, he will probably be around awhile longer.

Rockabilly Performer, Politician Bobby Lee Trammell Dies
Rockabilly performer Bobby Lee Trammell, whose varied career led him from recording the "Arkansas Twist" to getting elected to the state House of Representatives, has died. He was 74.

Trammell died Thursday night at his home in Jonesboro, according to Roller Funeral Homes.

Trammell was known for wild gyrations and a rambunctiousness that would incite audiences and get him in trouble with promoters and authorities. He never gained the popularity of other stars from the broader region, such as Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis.

Trammell sought fame in California early in his career, after growing impatient with Sam  ... continue reading

Legendary Rock'N'Roll Tour, 1960
Author embraces legendary tour which defined rock and roll

Feb 21 2008 by Philip Key, Liverpool Daily Post

Liverpool Rock 'n' Roll archivist Spencer Leigh

IT WAS the tour which defined rock and roll in its moody glory of hair styled with enough grease to lubricate a battleship, liquorice-tube trousers, padded shoulders, sneers, leers, a few good tunes and panting girls.

In 1960, the Americans Gene Vincent and Eddie Cochran hooked up with some milder British rockers from the stable of impresario Larry Parnes. Included were Joe Brown and Liverpool's Billy Fury with the coat-hanger shoulders, husky voice and gold  ... continue reading
