Bobby Poe RIP
Poe was a Rockabilly Hall of Fame inductee, based on the Poe Kats' own recordings and their work as the backing band for Wanda Jackson, including on the classic "Let's Have a Party."
After his career as a singer and guitarist, Poe became an artist manager in the 1960s. Among the acts whose careers he oversaw was The Chartbusters, the Washington, D.C.-based group whose one-hit-wonder story partially inspired Tom Hanks for the film That Thing You Do! Poe also co-managed an early Roy Buchanan band called The British Walkers. more on this story
