Video of the Weekend: “Red Hot,” Billy Lee Riley

Rockabilly artist Billy Lee Riley, filmed in 1980 doing “Red Hot,” his greatest hit and a classic rockabilly tune.  Billy Lee passed away a little over a year ago of cancer, this is a late version of this song but great nonetheless.

  1. He looks like Kurt Russell!

  2. I photographed him a few times back in the early 80’s. Nice unassuming guy. Of course, he flattered me by signing one of my prints “to the world’s greatest rock and roll photographer” Not hardly but the print means worlds to me now. He put on one hell of a show and I only wished I’d seen him back when he was at the top. The audience may have moved on but he was just as great as ever.

  3. THANKS FOR THE CHANCE TO SEE BILLY AGAIN, GREAT ROCK-A-BILLY………….PCM
