Tore Up


I had to actually do some digging on this one. I thought it was strange to not find a Wikipedia article when searching “Tommy La Beff” but I was able to find quite a few YouTube videos. Some were labeled “LaBeef” and since music has such a long history, I figured this Tommy character had passed away and some new musician had twisted the name for themselves. Nope! I was wrong! Same damn person.

Sleepy LaBeef is the stage name of Thomas Paulsley LaBeff (born July 20, 1935), an American rockabilly musician. He got his start by singing gospel music on local radio stations before venturing into rockabilly and eventually country.

He received the nickname “Sleepy” as the result of a lazy eye. He stands 6.5 ft tall.

Tommy James and the Shondells


You know what’s kind of weird? I know pretty much ALL of these songs, but had no clue who actually sang them. That’s rare. Usually, I’m the source for the music and celeb news!

Tommy James and the Shondells are an American rock and roll group whose greatest period was in the late 1960s. They had two No. 1 singles in the U.S., “Hanky Panky” (1966) and “Crimson and Clover” (1969), and also charted twelve other Top 40 hits, including five in the top ten.
