Bob Rogers - a top working guitarist. His first gig was in 1942 and he subsequently "played on hundreds of BBC broadcasts, films, shows and recordings" including as a member of the John Barry 7, Don Lang's Frantic Five - even a session with Jimmy Page! Films including 6.5 Special and Beat Girl and, most recently as a Skinnerette on the Frank Skinner show in 2001!
