Some wonderful, rich singing and great grooves from these old timers!
T-Model Ford. He didn't even start playing guitar until he retired and his fifth wife left him, leaving a guitar as a going away gift.
Buster Brown was nearly 50 when he recorded Fannnie Mae, a top 40 hit.
Ronnie Dawson was a teenage star in Dallas in the late 1950's. After releasing the great song Rockin' Bones he toured with Gene Vincent before signing to Dick Clark's Swan label. But during the payola scandal Clark divested himself of most of his assets before testifying to Congress and that included Ronnie. For the next 25 years or so Dawson played locally but never regained the initial attention he had enjoyed. Then a funny thing happened. In the late 1980's Rockabilly became hip again, the kids in Europe started noticing his early recordings and the Cramps cut Rockin' Bones. Ronnie was able to tour England and people saw that he still had the juice. At 51 years old he got a second chance, started releasing new albums and even appeared on Conan.
Captain Kirk is doing something now with Iggy Pop
Don't get me wrong, I love me some Iggy, and Shatner is a part of my childhood, but the excuse that 'It's Xmas' is no reason to unleash **** like this on the world.
Susan Boyle (from the voice) comes to mind.
I’m tryin at 55!
Hound Dog Taylor
I know he had a few sides and singles when he was young, but his “fame” came later, when Bruce Iglaur (sp?) formed Alligator records specifically to record Hound Dog and the Houserockers.
Also, Junior Kimbrough...
Great stuff!! Have seen them a few times.
He was 33 when he released his first album. There were another 12 before 'You Want it Darker'.
It's not the rest of the world's fault that the USA didn't 'discover' him until he was nearly dead.
Back on track, The Zimmers.
