About Robert Gordon

Robert Gordon was among the first of the rockabilly revivalists, and one of the only ones singing the praises of Elvis Presley's primal early work while the King was still alive. Gordon went on to a long career championing the first rock & roll era with a strong, flexible voice that was ideal for the vocal dramatics of rockabilly, and a sense of style that suited both the mood and sound of vintage rock. His early work captured him at his most passionate and energetic, especially on 1978's Fresh Fish Special and 1979's Rock Billy Boogie, while 1981's Are You Gonna Be the One found him embracing a more mature and diverse approach; 2007's It's Now or Never, a tribute to Presley, was a latter-day triumph. Gordon returned in 2020 with Rockabilly for Life, whose many guests included members of the Blasters, the Stooges, and the Go-Go's.
