Happy Birthday, Carl Perkins

Happy birthday wishes to the late, great Carl Perkins, writer of classic rockabilly hits: “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Gone, Gone, Gone,” and “Honey, Don’t.” Killer lyrics: “You can burn my house / Steal my car / Drink my liquor from an old fruit jar / Well do anything that you want to do / But uh-uh, honey lay off of my blue suede shoes.” Nothing more needs to be said to state his place in rock ‘n’ roll history than Paul McCartney’s remark that “if there were no Carl Perkins, there would be no Beatles.” Happy Birthday, Carl.
