If you you like Rory Gallagher, Stevie Ray Vaughan or ZZ Top then Rocky Athas is for you. In the late 70s and early 80s Lightning was one of the biggest draws in Texas nightclub history. In both 1978 and 1982 Lightning won the Texas Battle of the Bands contest, which had over 3000 entries. Rocky wasn't only recognized by Texas musicians though when Thin Lizzy wrote the song 'Cocky Rocky' after hearing Rocky play one night. And Queen's Brian May was so floored by Rocky's finger tapping style that he incorporated it on the next Queen album.
