Fresh off of the 40th Anniversary celebration with the Stray Cats, Lee Rocker has gotten back to his solo work with a new single and accompanying video. “Dog House Shuffle” pays homage to the original rock bass players that influenced him and the genre itself. The video features quick clips of his heroes.

“Bill Black was Elvis Presley’s bassman – he drove the mystery train groove that helped break the king Elvis Presley,” Rocker shares. “Also included in the video is the genius of bass players, Willie Dixon. Marshall Grant is in there as a member of the Tennessee Two with Johnny Cash. Dorsey ‘Rockabilly Boogie’ Burnette and my dear friend Carl Perkins with his bass slapping brother Jay– these were the architects of rock and roll. Me and the Stray Cats can trace parts of our sound back to these players. I just gotta say (quoting the song’s lyrics), ‘Put that old guitar right back in that case/Now it’s the time I’m gunna slap the bass.’ Let’s have some fun with the ‘Dog House Shuffle.'”

“Dog House Shuffle” is available now for download via iTunes and Amazon MP3. Check out the video:

Rocker currently has several U.S. tour dates followed by a run of shows in Canada. 2020 will see the rockabilly icon head back to the U.S. and across the Atlantic for a string of concerts in the UK.
