One of the rockabilly greats, Sonny Burgess has passed away aged 86 (or possibly 88) - he had four great singles released on Sun Records in 1956-8 and one on Phillips International in 1960 - although I wouldn't have heard of him until 1973 when 'We Wanna Boogie' was included on the excellent "Sun Rockabillys - Put Your Cat Clothes On" compilation LP.
