This page was created: March, 1997
THIS SITE is unique to the Internet, as it probably is one of the very few that are
supported, by the fans and artists of the music it represents. Built on a core of the "Foundation Team"
(see name listings in adjacent column) and its parent company
(Rockabilly Music Preservation, Inc.) this Hall of Fame belongs to the people. This site also hosts
a "rockabilly family" of readers with its 450+ member extremely active
e-mail discussion group
that continuously posts messages within the group and on its
message board. As you browse through the hundreds of
pages ahead, starting with the nucleus of the Rockabilly Hall of Fame:
"over 5,000 legends listed" - view the news, tidbits,
features, columns, etc., and consider being a part of this effort to preserve one of America's timeless musical
gifts to the world ... rockabilly. Hundreds of artist profile pages, links, photos, upcoming performance information and some
rockabilly music downloads,. Above all, have fun!
This site is dedicated to all the original rockers, living or
dead ... those who showed us the way to make people happy through their music.
God bless 'em all!
IF YOU ARE AN ARTIST or a fan with roots are in rockabilly music,
please consider supporting this web site. Many performers claim that rockabilly got them started
in music and they owe their career to the influence of early rockers. If that's true, here
is a chance to prove it.
Contribute to the preservation of rockabilly now. Several veteran artists have said that the Rockabilly Hall of Fame
has helped resurrect their careers ... that's great!
So, if you can afford it, it's payback
time (and tax deductible)! We've been here for almost 13 years with the same goals: to help and promote the
veteran and young rockabilly artists ... and to carry the genre's history to fans around the world.
Where are you? Like the Killer says. "Think about it!"

THE QUESTION MOST ASKED:
Is there a special criteria or maximum number of inductees into the Hall of
Fame per year?
Answer: This Internet based Hall of Fame is different than most.
Our main goal is to give recognition to many artists, sidemen and other important
individuals who made the whole rockabilly (early rock) scene happen in the first place.
We add names from time to time as we discover them, often they are unknowns to
many of us, but still important enough for world-wide recognition they will
never get anywhere else. Don't look here for the just the best, because our arms
are open wide to embrace all pioneer rockers that made the difference in a large or
small way. This is a "people" Hall of Fame where the friends, fans, relatives
(especially the children and grandchildren) of roots artists can gather, learn and
emjoy themselves. PLUS...we have an open door policy toward welcoming new talent.
