PostSubject: I AM WORRIED ;(   Mon Jun 02, 2008 1:58 pm

hi guys ! Wink , i have only just registered on the forum but have been a stray cats fan for many years , just wanted to introduce myself and say hello ! Very Happy , i know this may be a strange first post but i have this problem , over the last few years i have been piling the weight on and now with the cats doing this farewell tour i decided to go back to my youth a bit and have bought myself a rockabilly bowling shirt and a pair of red creepers , they do look cool in my opinion but because i have lost a lot of confidence since the weight gain i now don't know if i have the nerve to wear them and draw even more attention to myself ! , i have a rockabilly festival ( americana) and also the cats gig in manchester coming up and trying to decide if i should wear the stuff scratch any advice please ?

I say wear it! Im mid-40's and a little plump myself & I wear my creepers, mary janes, TUKs, and Rockabilly stuff all the time. There may be someone there in the same situation wearing their regular clothes and thinking "Man, that guy wore his stuff, & should've worn mine". Screw anyone who doesn't like it, you wearing it for yourself, not anyone else. Enjoy the show! Can't wait to see them here!

Hey ROCKABILLY_BHOY
Are you going to the Manchester GIG!! If so my family and I will meet you there. I am quite a big built bloke ( a lot of sloppy muscle from years of weight lifting "no Kidding",but I have got a gut. Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed )
I'm gonna wear a leather waist coat and bandana Ive bought just for the GIG,so dont be shy,we can all have FUN!! together.Dont worry about the weight thing,most Stray Cats fans in thier 40's 50's have a bit of middle age spread. Just put it down to GOOD LIVING!!!

I'm with everyone else here - wear the stuff! I think by drawing attention to yourself you are saying 'Look, I know who I am.. and I'm cool with that.. the rest of you can just sod off!'..

Welcome to the forum, have fun at those gigs!

Welcome! And just do it, you know you want to!

Now, if you must know, I'm somehow glad the Cats are doing a farewell tour right now because I'm losing my hair. A couple years more and I'd go to a rockabilly gig looking like doctor Phil.

lol!

I don't really care too much what other people think about the stuffs I'm wearing. I wear lots of 50's clothes because I like the way they are, and because they're rare and absolutely awesome. Yeah, 45 out of 50 people thinks it's strange, but be honest- and Im not a teenager(36) anymore-..WHO CARES? Nothing else better than be yourself, and live your life the way you want to.
" They might stare, but baby I don't care, we're gonna rock..rock..rock..LET'S ROCK!!! ENJOY THE SHOW!!!

I will be wearin my George Cox Blue suede shoes and my red and leopard skin shirt to the OC show..............wait that what I wore to dinner last night and i'm 45 yrs old, but thats what I want to wear and if "they" cant take it F*%K em i remember when if they werent starin I wasnt happy........................ wear it loud and proud go forth............you are rockabilly

Well it's one for the money, two for the show
Three to get ready, now go cat, go
But don't you step on my blue suede shoes
Well, you can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes

Well you can knock me down, slap in my face
Slander my name all over the place
And do anything that you wanna do
But oh-oh honey lay off of my shoes
But don't you step on my blue suede shoes
Well, you can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes

Well you can burn my house, steal my car
Drink my liquor from my ol' fruit jar
Do anything that you wanna do
But oh-oh honey lay off of my shoes
Now don't you step on my blue suede shoes
You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes

Listen here young Hoop, most of us are the same now. At 42 I'm no longer playing football, dodgy ankles and knees (all those years of goalkeeping) the weight has piled on alright, and how but it hasn't stopped me wearing my creepers, turned up jeans etc. I'm a Rockabilly, I made that choice coz I like that music and the clothes/hair/style that goes with it. I have began to lose weight, a decision I made myself, not pressure form others or what others thought. Be yourself wear what you want. Remember The Polecats?

"Goin downtown looking mighty cool,
I may act funny but I ain't no fool,
Rocka Rocka Rocka Rocka Rockabilly Guy.
Rockabilly Guy ain't ever gonna change my style

Hail Hail young man.

Welcome aboard.

As above,wear what you want! I dont have creeper's.
You dont have to wear them too show your a fan.

Alot of us Cats here,are putting on weight,since i meet Brian,i have put on at least a stone and a half! Partly due to the medication i now have to take,but hae,not been back to hospital since.

Enjoy the show.

Mark.
PS I'm losing my hair too! Very Happy

i don't think you can waste time worrying what others think -I'm 47 and bald but am still the same 'rockabilly guy' that I was in the late 70's!

I'll be at Manchester - but as I expect to be fighting for a spare inch at front of stage I'm just wearing stuff that I don't really care about getting trampled on etc!

Alright since everyone's in agreement that you should wear your rockabilly threads I think some pictures need to be posted. Laughing

You guys rock. Very Happy

Hey Paul, glad to hear you've settled yourself a bit now. Take a look at our website and you'll see all the cats and kittens in our Rockabilly Club here in Belfast, on www.redhotrockabillyclubbelfast.com and you'll see all sorts, greasers, teds, quiffs, baldies, chubbies, skinnies, drapes, creepers, swing dresses, stockings (oooohhhhh man!!) biker jackets, Betty Pages you name it. The thing is it doesn't matter, ya wera what ya want. Rockabilly Rules OK. Hey ya wanna get over for the Dublin gig we're Gonna Ball.

Hail Hail Wink

A wise old woman (my Grandma) used to be quite the fashionable lady in her younger days. After several children, and lots of years of well fed marital bliss, she "bloomed" in her older years. And her opinion of it all:

"I used to be built for speed, now I'm built for comfort!"


Here's to being built for comfort, and still having the personality of being built for speed!

I think that if you don't just be yourself, then it ain't rockabilly! Dude, you gotta have the fun inside. No real man has flat abs! We're too busy downing PBR to care about it.

I think youd draw more attention if you didn't go with the bowling shirt and creepers! My creepers are leopard, to match one of my bowlers!
