Very sad to hear of the death of the “Rockabilly Rebel”, Ray Campi. The Blasters and I owe Ray Campi an awful lot for his all help in our very early days. In 1979/80, he spread the word about us among the small but passionate rockabilly/roots crowd, then Ray got us our first gig at the Whiskey Au Go Go and a month later took us out as his opening act to the San Francisco Bay area on our first tour away from Southern California.
A few years later we’d bring Ray out to join us on stage when we were headlining joints like The Palace, The Whiskey and The Starwood. My favourite time was when we were playing the Club 88 and Phil suddenly got sick on stage. Phil ran offstage leaving the rest of us Blasters trying to figure out what to do. I looked around at the audience and saw Ray standing at the bar so I called him up.
Ray ran to the stage, grabbed Phil’s guitar and we did a whole set as Ray’s back-up band. I loved it. Of course, the first song we did was Ray’s 1957 rockabilly classic Catapillar. I’ll miss seeing, talking and playing with you Ray, but I know you’ll be rocking some sweaty, smokey, flat top joint somewhere on the other side.
