Drummer Nation Show #41 "Its Gotta Rock and Swing" Slim Jim Phantom

Drummer Nation

Slim Jim Phantom grew up listening to his parent's jazz records and started playing drums at the age of 10. By the late 1970s he was playing in bands with his school friend and bassist Lee Rocker. They soon joined forces with guitarist Brian Setzer to form the band "Stray Cats." The band spearheaded a rockabilly revival by blending the 1950s Sun Studio sound with modern punk musical elements. Jim often performed standing up, using only a bass drum, snare drum, hi-hat and a crash cymbal, rather than a full drum kit. Their high energy shows shows brought an updated heavier sound to traditional Rockabilly music. Their hit, "Rock This Town" is listed in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as one of the 500 most important songs in the history of rock and roll music. Jim is also an active member of the Love Hope Strength Foundation, a charitable organization which raises funds for cancer units. Find out what he’s up to now, on Drummer Nation.
