Lee Rocker to be honored at Art Star Awards
The Laguna Beach Alliance for the Arts will be honoring homegrown rockabilly musician Lee Rocker with the "Visionary Arts" award during the Fifth Annual Art Star Awards on April 1 at [seven-degrees].
The Laguna Beach resident achieved fame in the '80s as the bassist for The Stray Cats.
Rocker recently came off a tour, not for his band but for the musical "Million Dollar Quartet" on Broadway.
"I'm genuinely honored to be receiving the 2011 Laguna Beach Alliance for the Arts Award," Rocker said in a statement. "The community is my adopted home and where my wife and I raised our family. The Laguna Beach community is well known for its support of the arts, and living here I've been able to find my creative, personal and professional home base."
