Happy birth­day Duane

Total Guitar - - SCENE -

One of the elec­tric gui­tar’s trail­blaz­ing gui­tar he­roes will cel­e­brate his 80th year in style when he plays three rare UK gigs in Oc­to­ber. Duane Eddy’s re­verb-soaked leads on the bass strings wrote a vi­tal chap­ter in the evo­lu­tion of rock ’n’roll gui­tar dur­ing the golden era of the late 50s with the sig­na­ture low twang of his in­stru­men­tals, such as Rebel Rouser, Peter Gunn, Shazam! and Can­non­ball. He’ll play Lon­don, Glas­gow and Manch­ester on his visit and we’ll be talk­ing to Duane in the next is­sue when he shares his gui­tar wis­dom.

WHEN 23-30 Oc­to­ber
