Inducting Mack Banks into the Rockabilly Hall of Fame was a no-brainer. The Alabama-born and Mississippi-bred hellion cranked out country and bluegrass in the early 1950s until Elvis Presley blitzed the scene. Then he "went from hard-core country to rock 'n' roll," recording two raw rockabilly workouts on one microphone at WCPC radio station in 1956: "You're So Dumb" and "Be Boppin' Daddy," which eventually were released on Houston's Fame label under the name Mack Banks & His Drifting Troubadours. After almost joining Sun Records, Banks went on the wax blues and country sides for Nashville's Vee-Eight label before opening a supper club (complete with chicken wire shielding the stage) in Crawford, Miss., where he performed from 1967 to 1994, and also was a regular at the Sparta Opry. A racy, politically incorrect comic, he has released several comedy albums catering to the truck-stop market. Don't be dumb: Experience Mack Banks at the Ponderosa Stomp.
