Brian Setzer’s Hair

by , Featured Writer, Eleven-Nineteen

No matter what you think about The Stray Cats, Brian Setzer had a damn great head of hair. The rockabilly revival hit England hard in the late 70′s, early 80′s, after punk lost some of it’s shine, and The Stray Cats were right there to cash in. Having failed in their home country (USA) they fled to England to make their fortune – and briefly they did. By the time they finally got picked up in the States on a major label the movement was just about done (Brian even cut off his pompadour and dyed it black for the lp cover). Brian would eventually split to go solo with a sort of rockabilly-alt. country hybrid. He continues to play today w/ The Brian Setzer Orchestra and still has a pretty good head of hair.
