He started his first band while in high school called the Rocketeers. Upon entering Indiana State College, Rodgers began another band. He finally decided to quit college, move to Los Angeles and give his full time attention to his music. He has not limited himself to performing, in 1973 he produced the album Sonny and Terry on A&M.

Lyrics

Cadillac Jack

Written By: Maurice Rodgers

I'm on a one way mission to bring the fishtail back
"Cause the heart of rock and roll is the 50's Cadillac
America's rise can be traced to the fact
When they put the fishtail on the Cadillac
We got to bring it back
You know the 59 Caddy the fishtail was on the rise
In a rock and roll caddy America was so alive
Get out of the boxes toot your horn
Let the whole world know what's goin' on
Come on come on
Cadillac Jack says bring the fishtail back (2X)
We got to bring it back

Come on we got to get it back
Sing along with Cadillac Jack
Cadillac Jack says "Bring the Fishtail Back"
