Wicked Hot Rod record, one of my very favorites!
Johnny Fortune was born in Ohio moving to California in 1959 to work as a session musician in LA in '60 & '61. It is purported that he played on Sam Cooke's Chain Gang, although this has been disputed.
He was called the World's Greatest Guitarist by Sammy Hagar. Dragster was released in 1963.
His album Soul Surfer had his 10 year old brother playing drums on the title tune.
