Happy Birthday Juan Carlos! #thequakes #psychobilly #rockabilly #standupdrummer
It was 30 years ago today that we lost Dave “the ace” Hoy. Just days before his 18th birthday he was struck by a car in Buffalo NY. He plays drums on the first Quakes album but he could also play the bass and probably any other instrument he wanted to. A real talent for sure but he was also a great friend. There is no doubt that he would still be rocking today if he was here. Here are some pictures of Dave. If you have any pictures or stories, please share them, Thanks, Paul Roman #thequakes #psychobilly #rockabilly #davehoy

The first album by The Quakes was released 30 years ago (1988). We got the parody idea from the way Dave Phillips had parodied the Gene Vincent album. Like the Stray Cats, we had sold all of our stuff and moved to London to try and get an audience. Of course it was a gimmick and it was a good way to draw attention to us as we were an unknown band at the time. When The Stray Cats came to London on the Blast Off tour, they saw our record someplace. Long story short, I was able to get tickets and backstage passes for the concert at The Odeon from their photographer Gavin Cochrane. The Guana Batz opened the show. Thanks to the Stray Cats for not suing us :-) #thequakes #psychobilly #thestraycats #rockabilly #americanpsychobilly#davephillipsandthehotrodgang #genevincentandhisbluecaps
