Happy 57th birthday to Slim Jim Phantom, born on this day in 1961. James McDonnell, known by the stage name "Slim Jim Phantom," is best known as the drummer for the Stray Cats. Alongside his band mates Brian Setzerand Lee Rocker the band spearheaded the neo-rockabilly movement of the early 1980s. He was raised in Massapequa, NY. Phantom grew up listening to his parent's jazz records and by the age of 10 took up the drums. "To be honest I think the drums chose me, I can't remember ever wanting to do anything else." remembers Phantom. He took lessons with Mousie Alexander (who played with Benny Goodman). By the late 1970s he was playing in bands with his school friend and bassist Lee Rocker and they soon joined together with guitarist Brian Setzer. During downtime from the "Stray Cats," Jim Phantom played in several bands, notably one with Rocker and guitarist Earl Slick, ("Phantom, Rocker & Slick,") which produced 2 albums, and also with "The Swing Cats." He was married to the actress Britt Ekland from 1984 to 1992, and that is when I booked his band, "Phantom, Rocker & Slick," opening for Pat Travers in South FL. Phantom played with Jerry Lee Lewis, and he formed "Col. Parker" along with former "Guns N' Roses" guitarist Gilby Clarke, releasing the album "Rock n Roll Music," in 2001. Most recently he has been busy with some projects; his trio, "Dead Men Walking," with Kirk Brandon, Mike Peters and Captain Sensible, the band "Kat Men" with Imelda May guitarist Darrel Higham, and "The Head Cat" starring Lemmy and Danny B. Harvey. "Rant n' Rave with the Stray Cats" is the 3rd album from the Stray Cats, released in August of 1983. The album features the hits "(She's) Sexy + 17" and "I Won't Stand in Your Way." The album is out of print on CD. It’s another great album from the Stray Cats, however some critics panned the album. Music critic Robert Cristgau said, "Brian Setzer is a poor songwriter and 'a preening panderer, mythologizing his rockin' '50s with all the ignorant cynicism of a punk poser." LOL. #slimjimphantom#straycats#rantnrave#rockabilly#briansetzer#leerocker

Its high tide on dumped cats and kittens. This kitty should have been given proper medication rather being thrown away like trash. With proper treatment at a reasonable price, her then first symptoms of scabies would have cleared just fine. And wouldn't have escalated to this stage. She's been admitted to Kimmy Klinik until she can safely be with her foster pawrents.
BE A RESPONSIBLE OWNER.
HAPPY HEALTHY CAT.
