When many rockabilly's contemporaries think about the genre, that is the idea that comes from the idea of a three-part group consisting of a drummer, keyboard bassist, and a singer playing an electric guitar. It is a class of ordinary rockabilly in modern times. But the piano played a key role in rock music long ago. Let's look at some rockabilly activities that make the piano an important part of their voice.
- Jerry Lee Lewis: This is obvious. Jerry Lee, "The Killer", is known for its crazy piano anti-Turks and style. Lewis began as a man sitting on Sam Phillips's Memphis Recording Service studio and played piano at San Records (which also belonged to Phillips). Until Philips gave Lewis his shot and he did the best. Lewis has played and acts as a wild man and really puts the piano on the fire literally at least in one case. She was a proud showman in her style and playing. Lewis has set the standard for rock and rock pianists years ago.
- Big Al Downing: Big Al was a bit rare in her early age. He was an ordinary boy from Oklahoma, who taught him to play a piano with an old, half-operative trick that someone gave his parents. He started playing the country's music, which is rare for a white musician, but for a black man (actually, only 14 years old, when he first noticed), the country's music was unusual. He also took a lot of things from the R & B piano players and his R & B game, which eventually landed on him, playing with Bobby Poe and Poe Cats. After all, Poe Cats became Rockabilly Queen Wanda Jackson band, and they traveled with him as well as in his most successful recordings in the "Let's Party" series. Downing's piano play became the most part of Wanda's voice. Downing continues playing music and playing with innumerable artists until his death.
- Sonya Burning and Pacers: Sonny Burgess and his band The Pacers were the wildest action rockabilly. In addition to the piano, their columns included a trumpet, as far as I know they were the only rockabilly band to show this instrument. Pacers's pianist was Kern Kennedy, Phillips became a pianist when Jerry Lee struck a big blow. Finally, Kennedy was sitting with Byuring and two of his long-time friends. Kennedy's style was very similar to Lewis and was filled with Burgess's practices.
- Jerry Lee's Smoochy Smith: Yep; Another pianist named Jerry Lee. Smith became one of the pianist Samuel Phillips and in 1957-1959 he appeared on numerous Sun records. His style was like the other Jerry Lee, and both are already known as innovators in the voice of the "pompous piano" of the day. He played on recordings of Billy Lee Riley, Warren Smith, Aki Kennedy and others, though she was not often written on her recordings as she was young and naive and did not belong to the musicians' union. Sometimes Lewis was captured and Jimmy Wilson's name was used the other time.
- Charlie RichRich is another huge name that was written at Sun Records. He brought more piano and piano music for his royal recordings, and, in the future, it would become a musical star.
The music that these men make with their piano is like every one of them, like rogue, like records without piano. The piano brought a different dimension to the royal music, and these pianists brought a lot of seduction to the rockabilly stage.
