Johnny Horton - honky tonk singer who was a regular on the Louisiana Hayride before releasing a string of modest hit singles in the fifties. Success peaked late in the decade with several historical narrative songs, such as The "Battle Of New Orleans," "Sink the Bismarck" and "North to Alaska." He died in a car crash in 1960.
Vincent Eugene Craddock (February 11, 1935 – October 12, 1971), known as Gene Vincent. His 1956 top ten hit with his Blue Caps, "Be-Bop-A-Lula", is considered a significant early example of rockabilly. Known as the screaming end, his band would often end their act by rolling the drum kit across the stage and kicking over the amps. Something a band called the WHO emulated many years later. He died in a car crash in England along with Eddie Cochran.
