Personalities | Charlie Feathers | Rockabilly | Country
(Vocals, guitar, 1932–98)
A cult hero, especially in Europe, Charlie enjoyed no commercial success whatsoever but was revered for his authentic rockabilly sound. Born near Holly Springs, Mississippi, he first recorded for Sun in 1954, but cut his finest rockabilly for King and Meteor. His unusual vocal technique – complete with hiccups and stutters – is instantly recognizable and he was much loved by purists because of his refusal to compromise his primitive style.
