But the conversation didn’t go like that at all…!

…We were discussing contradictions, inaccuracies and the missing end of Roger Cooper’s last sentence in the “Great British Electric Guitar Bible”!!

Also Frank’s first instruments — his first bass which was a Gibson EB 1 which is now on display in the Hard Rock Cafe, Reyjavik.

Guy Mackenzie with The Searchers Guy Mackenzie … with the Searchers who are still playing to packed out venues (including Falmouth!) all over the world and have been voted No. 1 60s band by the readers of Beat Magazine in 2012 — 50 years after the band split with Johnny Sandon!
