    Beautiful Rough - Best Of Rock-Ola CD

    This 27 track Best Of Rock-Ola collection covers the whole his career.
    Rock-Ola is rockabilly royalty in the book of his many admirers.
    As with many others, Rock-Ola's first idol was Rock 'n' Roll King of Kings, Elvis Presley - and it us impossible not to notice his influence on Rock-Ola's singing.
    Starting his musical career as a drummer, obtained a nationwide reputation in the lineup of Johnny and The New Dodgers, but when he was invited to join The Lonestars, he started to gain attention also as a vocalist.
    The Lonestars was Finland's own rockabilly super group with three equal vocalists - Teddy Guitar, Buck Jones and Rock-Ola.
    The solo career of Rock-Ola soon gained international momentum.
    He played with various Swedish backup bands, and then in 1981 he recorded his first solo single with The Blue Cats, a solidly popular British rockabilly band.
    In 1990 RockOla claimed new territory by joining The Charades – which had been an instrumental group until then – as a vocalist.
    When Ola managed to bring together his current band Rock-Ola & The Freewheelers, it promptly joined the frontline of Finnish rock 'n' roll.
    Recordings and live shows of the band are powerful proof of the strong gig credentials of the band.
