: I guess I must be the least cool guy around. I started playing bass again a few months ago, after a fifteen year breather, and only when I started perusing bass websites did I encounter for the first time the term, "Rockabilly."

: Enlighten me, please. What type of music is this, and who plays it?

Precursor to rock and roll (or early rock and roll if you prefer). 1950's stuff with small drum kit, double bass (often slapped), guitar, occasionally sax. You must grease your hair into a duck tail to properly play this form. Vintage bowling shirt also helps. The Stray Cats played rockabilly.
