Album Notes

With over many years of singing and playing drums under his belt, Jackslacks is a true Rock and Roll Dinosaur. This singing drummer has played hundreds of shows across the U.S.A. and shared the stage with classic and neo rockers including hero Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry, Stray Cats, The Blasters, NRBQ, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Robert Gordon, Junior Brown, Big Sandy, Beat Farmers, Paladins, Mojo Nixon and lots more.

The quality line-up of musicians who appear with Jackslacks on this record include Tommy Byrnes, Buzz Campbell, Johnny Mercury and Bill Giorgio on guitars, Billy Bacon and Johnny D'Artenay on the upright bass and boasts the ace studio production of Stray Cat Lee Rocker. A Shield Of Love Production (SOL-1).

The original songs on "Dinosaur" are both energetic and uniquely fun to listen to. Foot tappin' music! With influences and musical styles melding elements of the blues (Heat Lightning), rockabilly (Bank Account's Too Small), country (Nothin' Shakin) and 1950's rock and roll (Baja Baby / Too Much Fun) this CD is a fine addition to any collection.

Having received good press and reviews from the Detroit News, Novi News, LA Times, San Diego Union, Charleston Daily Mail, Graffiti Magazine, Blue Suede News Magazine, BlackCat Rockabilly and others, Jackslacks looks to take his solo career to the next level.

Scott Burnson

Neo-rockabilly with a twist!
After listening to this CD for about the 10th time in a row, I've come to the conclusion that Jackslacks and some of his old bandmates really know what they are doing. I recognized some of the players (Buzz from Hot Rod Lincoln, Tommy Byrnes from Billy Joel). Former Stray Cat slap bassist Lee Rocker produced many of the songs. I would recommend it to my friends because it crosses over with some early Beatles sounds and even has some Doug Salm sounding Tex-Mex.

William E. Thomas

Rocka-rocka-billy, groovin' boogie-woogie and slammin' 50's R & R!
This CD has a constant theme, that is, my foot was tapping from the 1rst track to the last. I really appreciate the diversity of the rock and roll here. Track 2 (Bank Account's Too Small) a classic Carl Perkins sounding ditty. Baja Baby, a kind of Chuck Berry meets Doug Salm and Too Much Fun definitely a late 50's straight ahead jam.


Test of time
This CD certainly stands the test of time -as most good music does. Love the rockabilly!
