Column #45 - published May 5, 2001

Second Annual
Viva Las Vegas Picture Show


This Column will be short in words and long in pix ... well the words are done, here come the pix, ain't that a relief???


First are the pictures from
THE INTERNATIONAL
ROCKABILLY REBELS MEET & GREET:



Rockin' Ronny shakin' the Rock: have you ever, in your whole life, seen anybody wearing 1950s style LEVI's 501 cowboy-cut jeans in ORANGE DENIM???
Well, doggone it, gimme some credit!!! :-) :-)



Well, if the orange blue-jeans didn't cut it for you, how about this orange Mercury from the Lonely Knights Car Club?
If this beauty doesn't wake you up, you must be in deep freeze!



Now, if you don't like oranges, you may go for this cool hot-rod, proudly owned by Paul Galaxy, Rollin' Rock Records' latest recording artist!!



Bob Timmers, a bit out of focus......the photograph, that is, not Bob!!!



Larry Shell & Co: dig the Hawaiian motive!



Rick & Shaunna Hand, all the way from Canada, we're glad to see them every year!!



Benny Weiser and friends: the new generation of Rockabilly Rebels



Next are the pictures from

VIVA LAS VEGAS 2001:


Rockabilly China Doll: Rockabilly is an International language!!



Frederic: DJ from Portland. Too bad the pic didn't catch the full effect of his rainbow colored hair, nor that of his belt with blinking lights!!



The VLV fashion show: nothing is sexier than 1950s fashions!



Johnny Legend screamin' out "Rockabilly Boogie/Soakin' The Bone" for the 30 Year Anniversary Show of Rollin' Rock Records produced by Bob Timmers at Viva Las Vegas.



Ray Campi at the Rollin' Rock Anniversary Show.
Backed by Dave Crimmen (lead guitar), Pep Torres (rhythm) and Eli Rinek (of Johnny & The Blades, on drums).



Rip Carson likes too cut lose at the Rollin' Rock show, but then of course his latest fashion customized jacket (pic on the right) kinda "restrained" his rockin' madness!!



30 Year Anniversary Tribute Show To Rollin' Rock Records: Texas Legend Alvis Wayne backed by the Chop Tops, with Shelby Legnon on guitar.



Here's Alvis Wayne with Jessica Rooth belting out their Rollin' Rock Hit Record "Those Lonely Lonely Teardrops" Number 9 on Spinner.com radio!! (Chose "Modern Rock", then chose "Rockabilly").



Skinny McGhee (one of the top acts of VLV) and Hot Rod Hooligans.



Shifters Car Show at Viva Las Vegas: If these three don't excite you ....



then, as Paul Galaxy said, these TWO will!!!!
