For a few short years in the late 1950s, rockabilly music rode the top of the charts, and rockabilly musicians were just about the coolest cats around. The music they made formed a bridge between old-time country music and the brand-new sound of rock 'n' roll, and they influenced generations of rockers to come. One of rockabilly's brightest stars, Carl Perkins, was born Apr. 9, 1932, and we're celebrating his birthday with a photo gallery of some of the greats of the genre.
