Rockabilly artist born in Bono, Arkansas in 1941, whose full name was Larry Donn Gillihan.  He was best known for the 1959 classic, 'Honey Bun' [Vaden 113].  Nowadays, a mint copy of this single will cost you at least £200.  From the early '90s, he wrote a great rockabilly column in the UK magazine, 'Now Dig This', and in 2006 released a new album called 'Burning!'.  Sadly he died in 2012, aged 70.
