Shadows guitarist Hank Marvin inspired a whole generation of youngsters to pick up the guitar and create amazing sounds just like him.
Among them was 11-year-old Andy Powell, of rock band Wishbone Ash, as he began playing the guitar after watching Hank in action.
Several decades later, Andy is still going strong and regarded as one of the best players in the world of the Gibson Flying V guitar, an instrument another one of his musical heroes, Albert King, played.
On Sunday, there’s a chance to hear his remarkable skills when he brings Wishbone Ash to Aberdeen.
They’ve reached a remarkable milestone – 50 years of continual touring and recording at the highest level – and will celebrate with a specially extended show which includes back-projections taking the audience on a journey through their history.
Having sold millions of albums, the band’s iconic twin-guitar sound has become familiar to audiences around the world with legendary classics such as The King Will Come, Throw Down The Sword and Blowin’.
● A night not to be missed, especially for classic rock and guitar fans, the shows is at the Lemon Tree, Aberdeen, and starts at 7.30pm. Contact: 01224 641122.
