With a net worth of $6.5 million, musician Brian Setzer has carved out a respectable living for himself despite never hitting the biggest highs of rock stardom. Still, many are the struggling musicians that would kill for a career like Setzer's. That career began in the year 1979, when an almost 20 year old Setzer started a rockabilly band called The Stray Cats. Their retro sound was popular, particularly after the release of their 1982 album Built for Speed, which signaled their "arrival" in American pop music. The singles off of the album, "Rock this Town" and "Stray Cat Strut," were both top 10 songs, and continue to get airplay on radio stations across the country today. From there, The Stray Cats eventually separated in 1984, leaving Setzer to pursue solo projects. His first album, The Knife Feels Like Justice, had a much more mainstream sound than his fans were accustomed to, and was not the smashing success he'd found with The Stray Cats. Since his early-80s peak, Setzer has continued to work as a musician, both by himself and with a variety of other bands. He can also be heard in some rather unexpected places, such as the children's Disney Channel TV show House of Mouse, for which he composed and performed the theme music.
Brian Setzer (born April 10, 1959) is an American guitarist, singer and songwriter. He first found widespread success in the early 1980s with the 1950s-style rockabilly revival group The Stray Cats, and revitalized his career in the late 1990s with a jazz-oriented big band, The Brian Setzer Orchestra.
Setzer was born in Massapequa, New York. Beginning in January 1979, he fronted the popular rockabilly band, the Stray Cats.
After performing locally from New York to Philadelphia under various band names with no real success, singer and lead guitarist Setzer, drummer Slim Jim Phantom (born James McDonnell) and bassist Lee Rocker (born Leon Drucker) decided in June 1980 to go to London, England where they believed people would better appreciate their sound and style.
To get the money for their plane tickets, Brian, Lee and Jim went to Sam Ash Music on 48th Street to sell their instruments and gear to the store, and rather than negotiating simply sold all of their equipment for just enough money for three one-way plane tickets. Upon their arrival, they decided to call themselves the "Stray Cats", a name suggested by Rocker because of their status as 'strays'. After performing for only a few months they drew the attention of British producer Dave Edmunds and released a series of successful singles in the UK, which countered the already-entrenched punk scene in London with the more simple stripped down rockabilly sound, which immediately caught on with the youth.
After releasing several singles and two albums in England, the Stray Cats finally caught America's attention with the 1982 album Built for Speed, which included the two Top Ten hits, "Rock This Town" (#9) and "Stray Cat Strut" (#3). This album was basically a re-release of many of the songs from the two previous albums: the self-titled "Stray Cats" and "Gonna Ball" (they have never been released in America). Their follow-up 1983 album Rant 'N Rave with the Stray Cats included the two successful singles
