Brian Setzer: Behind the Music #134

Season 1 Ep 13411/12/2000

Brian Setzer has made a career of going against the grain. A pop pioneer who has defied the naysayers, rolled the dice and hit it big every time. For twenty years, Brian Setzer has followed his heart up the charts. Along the way, he's single-handedly resurrected not one but two musical genres: Rockabillly & Big Band Swing. From the ups and downs, breakups and reunions, the retro music of the Stray Cats endures. Brian's big band, The Brian Setzer Orchestra, has become more successful than the pioneers he emulates and won him 2 Grammy awards. This BTM focuses on the man who's passion for music superseded the musical forces of the 80's & 90's.
