Slim Jim Phantom
A Stray Cat Struts - My Life as a Rockabilly Rebel (book)

In June 1980, 19-year-old James McDonnell (known as Slim Jim Phantom) boarded a plane to the U.K. with his childhood friends and bandmates Brian Setzer and Lee Rocker.
In less than a year, they went from being homeless, hungry, and living in punk rock squats to being the toast of the London music scene.
The Stray Cats released double-platinum records and scored worldwide success, embraced by classic rock acts and punk rock heroes.
After ten years of marriage to actress Britt Ekland, Phantom moved to Los Angeles' Sunset Strip where he raised his son and owned world famous nightclub the Cat Club, while continuing to play with a host of well-known musicians.
A veteran of the London and LA music scenes, Slim Jim Phantom's memoir recounts not just the Stray Cats' rise but a life spent in the upper echelon of rock 'n' roll stardom.
