Life of Riley

Sun Records' rock 'n' roll pioneer survives cult-hero status

"When people talk about Sun Records, they forget that we were even there," Riley says blankly, as if he is tired of yakking about it. "If hadn't been for us -- me and my band -- I imagine some of those guys wouldn't have made it. We were the music behind it. Me and my band as a group and as individuals, we played a bigger part in Sun happening than anybody around there."
