"Gadsden Entertainment News This week, Gadsden Entertainment News features the talented Russell Gulley who can be seen around these parts, playing at various venues and carrying on his musical traditions. He is a veteran of the road with a long and colorful history, steeped in the blues and early rock and roll. Born in Rome, Ga. in 1947, Gulley loved music all his live and grew up loving to listen to am radio, WCKY and WLAC, catching all the latest tunes. He moved to Fort Payne with his family at a young age soaking in all the local music, listening to local deejay, Jeff Cook (of Alabama) and catching the spiritual groove of the Pentacostal choir on Sundays. He heard those strains of music and realized that this early rock and roll Sam Phillips was cranking out of Sun Records up in Memphis was somethin akin to 'hopped up gospel and blues'. Gulley never turned back from there.Check him out at"  Alabama Annie, Gadsden Entertainment News
