His guitar sounds may be familiar though his name may not be.
I am not one to remember names, just music. It's just something I am not interested in unless I meet someone personally. It did ring a bit of a bell but I could not have told you who he was or what he did.His name may not be??? Where ya been hiding for the last 50 years?
Hank Marvin is the hero of many subsequent guitar heroes. The prized possession of a late friend of mine (a Brit by origin) was the red-with-white-pickguard Standard Strat his wife bought him; "just like Hank's".
In Ottawa, the Saturday afternoon teen dance show in the 60's was named "Saturday Date". The theme - which I thought was the epitome of rock at the time - was "The Rise and Fall of Fingel Bunt". It was the heaviest thing I had ever heard, and featured Hank Marvin's clean and piercing tones.
