Happy birthday Duane
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.
