Lee Rocker

A longtime bassist with the rockabilly revival trio the Stray Cats, Lee Rocker was born Lee Drucker in 1961. With fellow Long Island schoolmates Brian Setzer and Slim Jim Phantom, he formed the Stray Cats in 1979. The group relocated to London the following year, scoring a series of U.K. Top Ten hits including "Runaway Boys," "Stray Cat Strut," and "Rock This Town" before returning stateside to enjoy similar success. The group's meteoric rise took its toll on the bandmembers, however, and in 1983 they split up; Rocker and Phantom then recruited ex-David Bowie guitarist Earl Slick to form Phantom, Rocker & Slick, scoring a minor hit in 1985 with "Men Without Shame."
