Mike's Music News

For about a six month period in 2016,  Nathan Willis of Little Rock got permission from original Sun Records rockabilly musician Sonny Burgess to follow Sonny and his bandmates to gather material for a short  film,  The Arkansas Wild Man.  This 18-minute work poignantly conveys that Sonny was nearing the end of his career. The most impressive segment was filmed in England where Sonny played his last Hemsby festival in 2016.
