OLDIESMUSIC.COM/NEWS: Rockabilly guitarist Paul Burlison, who
influenced Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck and Eric Clapton, died Saturday
(September 27) of cancer. He was 74. Burlison teamed with Johnny
and Dorsey Burnette to form the Rock 'n' Roll Trio, who won Ted
Mack's Amateur Hour three weeks in a row in 1956. The group
recorded for Coral Records, making more than a dozen records
before splitting up in 1957. His version of tunes like "Train Kept
A-Rollin" were a big influence on British Invasion artists.
