Columbus, 1958 - 1970s
Bill Strickland was a pioneering Columbus rocker. He helped originate the Columbus rock/R&B sound that influenced so many bands included the Nutrons, Skip Robinson, Four Knights, and the Bishops.
Bill played with many different musicians, but one of the
early band was the Bill Strickland Trio, with Frank Queen on guitar and Roger Wolfe on drums.
Together, these three formed the Fabar record label, named for the
first name initials ( F and B and R).
Over the next four years Bill released several 45s and continued to work at Columbus bars, primarily the Boathouse where he was the main house performer.
He passed away in the early 1980s.
