As the founder and lead of The Stray Cats, he is well-known for the songs “Rock this Town” and “Stray Cat Strut.” He received the Orville H. Gibson Lifetime Achievement Award and has won three Grammy Awards: Best Pop Instrumental Performance (2), and Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal.
