    Stray Cat member Lee Rocker, known for playing the upright bass, will join the cast of the smash Broadway hit Million Dollar Quartet as bassist Jay Perkins in a limited, twelve-show run from January 21st through 31st, 2011.

    The Broadway musical Million Dollar Quartet is inspired by the legendary recording sessions that took place Tuesday, December 4th, 1956, in the Sun Record Studios in Memphis, Tennessee. The session was an impromptu jam among Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash and additional session musicians. That is certainly what I'd call "legendary," for sure. Rocker is set to play Carl Perkins' brother, the bass player Jay Perkins. "The story is especially close to my heart," says Rocker, who was a close friend and musical collaborator of Carl Perkins up until his passing.
