Biography | show moreshow less
Carl Perkins (1932-1998), had a No. 1 hit with  "Blue Suede Shoes" in 1956. In a tragic twist of fate, Carl and his brother were seriously injured in an auto accident while on their way to appear on television shows in New York City (The Perry Como Show on Saturday night and The Ed Sullivan Show on Sunday evening). While in traction, Perkins watched Elvis Presley perform his hit on Sullivan's variety show. While his own career never regained its momentum, Perkins continued to record and write songs for other stars, including Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline and the Beatles, and his guitar style was highly influential. Before his death from throat cancer, he saw himself elevated to "living legend" status and elected to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
