Slim Jim Phantom
ABOUT SLIM JIM PHANTOM and THE WILDCATS:
As the legendary drummer for Stray Cats, Slim Jim Phantom, alongside bandmates Brian
Setzer and Lee Rocker, spearheaded the neo-rockabilly movement of the early 80s. Over
four decades later, Slim Jim Phantom continues to inspire and excite audiences
worldwide. With a sound, style, and image that remain as fresh today as they ever were,
Phantom has cemented his place among rock royalty. Considered by many as the
coolest drummer in rock ‘n’ roll, Phantom’s influence is still clearly felt on today’s music
scene with countless rockabilly drummers imitating his pioneering stand-up style. Slim
Jim’s new band, Slim Jim Phantom & The Wildcats, will see him joined by his wife,
musician and songwriter Jennie Vee (Courtney Love, Eagles of Death Metal) on bass.
