She used to date Elvis. That grabs attention when talking about Wanda Jackson, but there's plenty more that can be said: that she's the sizzling voice of "Fujiyama Mama," "Let's Have a Party," "Mean Mean Man" and other classics of the narrow field of female rockabilly (she remains the undisputed queen of that genre), that she wrote "Kickin' Our Hearts Around" for Buck Owens. At 60, she's back on the American circuit after years of European tours and singing gospel. The Queen pays a royal visit to the Valley at 9 p.m. Tuesday, April 7, at the Rhythm Room, 1019 East Indian School. The cover is $9. Cadillac Angels share the bill. 265-4842.
