Personal Quote:

I started playing the bass strings as they made more impact - especially when amplified - but you had to have a strong riff or melody, and that's what I did - and I played it with authority and feeling. See more »


Noted guitarist and composer who churned out a slew of highly charted instrumental hits in the late 50s and 60s ("Rebel Rouser","Cannonball", "Yep", "Forty Miles Of Bad Road","Because They're Young", "Pepe","Peter Gunn", "Boss Guitar"), best known for his "twangy" guitar riffs. See more »
