He's the man who wrote "Blue Suede Shoes," the hit song sung by Elvis Presley which became the first Sun label record to sell over a million copies. CARL PERKINS has also written the songs, "Matchbox," "Honey Don't," and "Everybody's Trying to Be My Baby" which have been recorded by the Beatles. PERKINS is the pioneer of a style of music called Rockabilly, which is described as "a country man's song with a black man's rythm." PERKINS, born in Tennessee, learned to play guitar from his uncle and formed a band with his two brothers before touring the South with Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash. It was Cash who gave Perkins the idea for the song, "Blue Suede Shoes." PERKINS has just written a new book, entitled "Go, Cat, Go!"(Hyperion) in which he talks about his career.
