    (1979- )
    Born in Long Island, New York
    Brian Setzer (April 10, 1959- ), guitar and vocals
    Lee Rocker (birth name Leon Drucker; August 3, 1961- ), double bass
    Slim Jim Phantom (birth name James McDonnell; March 20, 1961- ), drums
    Recorded the singles 'Runaway Boys,' 'Stray Cat Strut,' 'Rock This Town' and '(She's) Sexy + 17'
    Recorded the albums 'Built for Speed' (1982), 'Rant N Rave with the Stray Cats' (1983), 'Rock Therapy' (1986), 'Blast Off!' (1989), 'Let's Go Faster!' (1990), 'Choo Choo Hot Fish' (1992), 'Original Cool' (1993), 'Forever Gold' (2002) and 'Rumble in Brixton' (2004)
    They are heavily tattooed.
    They broke up in 1984, got back together in 1986, then broke up again, initiating a nearly continuous break-up/reunion cycle.
    Setzer apparently decided that their 50s rockabilly was not retro enough, so he moved back another decade for the jump blues/big band sound of the Brian Setzer Orchestra.
    They opened for the Rolling Stones' 1981 North American tour.
    Their colorful retro appearance made them an early MTV favorite.
    They had three Top Ten hits in both the US and UK.
