Rocky Athas, known by critics and fans as The Texas Tornado, The Malice from Dallas, The Young Eric Clapton and The Last Great Bluesbreaker Guitarist, possesses an arsenal of punishing guitar riffs and catchy hooks that have opened every door. From his first solo album at Willie Nelson’s studio with multi-Grammy winning producer, Jim Gaines, to recording with Buddy Miles and SRV’s Double Trouble to Glenn Hughes, Joe Walsh and John Mayall, Rocky has a blues rock pedigree that reads like a Who’s Who of musicians. You might not know how to pronounce his name correctly, but you will most certainly remember his playing! With his wonderfully crafted new album “Shakin’ The Dust” Rocky is here to announce his return from the international touring stage with The Godfather of British Blues to reclaim his rightful place front and center delivering his musical message with Texas style.
