Lee Rocker formed a punk rock style group that just happened to play rockabilly.  The Stray Cats had a host of hit records, first in England and beginning in the early 1980s in the United States. Uniting their sound and the three members was their friendship since they were in grade school and their passion for all things music.  Even in the late 70s when punk was using fast tempos and roaring guitars, the Stray Cats proved the same expression could be conveyed by way of the music that was created in the rare early years of Rock and Roll.  Since that success, Lee has proudly been able to play with many of his musical heroes and continues to record and produce the music that he finds can help him express himself.
