Tommy Blake, 1931-1985 (American rockabilly singer, songwriter)


* Tommy Blake had Pluto in the 8th at the apex of a Cardinal T-Square involving an opposition between Uranus and the Moon/Mars. He was jailed for rape at an early age, then signed with the Marines for a tour. While enlisted he lost an eye, in mysterious circumstances. Eventually he recorded several songs including "Sweetie Pie," "Cool Alligator" and "I'll Be Free." He also co-wrote "Cool Gator Shoes" with Carl Belew in 1959 plus writing or co-inking "The Story Of A Broken Heart", picked up by Johnny Cash on Sun in 1958, "Lonely Street" and "Am I That Easy To Forget". During his last two decades Blake signed away the rights to songs he was writing, while succumbing to alcoholism, drug abuse, and heart disease. He died on Christmas Eve, 1985, when his third wife shot him to death under the Christmas tree in his Carthage, Texas home.
