It was the summer of ’82. I was lying in the sun on Santa Monica beach watching the girls go by. Bikini-clad girls with Hollywood looks on roller skates whizzing past like angels in the wind, infecting my libido and twisting my melons.
And Tainted Love was all around. I felt it in my fingers… It poured out of radios and ghetto blasters and cafes and big cars full of big men with hot chicks eating hot dogs. It was fucking everywhere. 
Carl Perkins 2.

Son of a Tennessee sharecropper, Carl Perkins was born in 1932 and the middle son. He grew up picking cotton and got his first guitar aged 7 and it was made by his father from a cigar box, broomstick and baling wire. Carl would practice endlessly behind the chicken house pretending he was singing on Nashville's Grand Ole Opry. His boogie rhythm guitar style developed with lessons from a neighbour. He won a talent contest when he was 13 and had written a song called “Movie Magg," which a decade later would convince Sam Phillips to sign him to his Sun Records label.
