Product Notes

In the late '70s and early '80s Lightning was one of the biggest draws in Texas nightclub history. Rocky's fame was such that Gibson honored him by making him the only non-record label endorsee in the company's history. At 23 Rocky Athas was named as one of the ten best guitarists in Texas, as an inductee to Buddy Magazine's Texas Tornadoes. Rocky wasn't only recognized by Texas musicians, the English rock band Thin Lizzy wrote the song Cocky Rocky after hearing Rocky play. Their notoriety in the South led to a very strong and loyal fan base, which brought them a deal with United Artists then onto Capricorn Records, but Capricorn filed bankruptcy and the band couldn't regain it's momentum. Rocky has collaborated, on this project to re-record some of their personal favorites from the past, with Lightning veterans Walter Watson, Skipper Wilson and Larry Samford.
