The Guitar Collection Archive
Andy Scott (formerly a winner on TV’s “Opportunity Knocks”) joined Sweet in 1970, replacing ex-Pirate Mick Stewart, and the rest, as they say, is history!
Sweet … Andy Scott and (vocals teacher) Andy O’Hara, ex-”Sailor” Pete Lincoln and powerhouse drummer Bruce Blisland. This must be the best line up since the band split in 1981 and they performed a blockbusting set in Truro. I can’t wait to see them again!
Former session guitarist, John, (RCA, Virgin, Polydor etc.) who has appeared on TV’s Top of The Pops, Pebble Mill, Wogan etc, and backed artists such as Alison Moyet, Jennifer Warnes, Neil Sedaka, Boy Meets Girl etc.
Pictured with his favourite PRS – just one of an impressive arsenal of Fenders and PRSs’. But his first guitar, bought for him at the age of 13, was an Audition – identical to one in my collection!
John and ex-recording artist Roger Lane (Roger De’Coverly) who now perform as Barfly and are currently lighting up the West Country with some great vocals and magical guitar work (Clapton, Hendrix, Moore, Mark Knopfler, Santana, SRV…and, of course, their own compositions).
Ron Barrett who with his wife Rosalind, toured throughout the UK in the 1970′s & early 80′s,pictured with Guy Mackenzie on drums who was gigging for the first time in over 25 years! My next gig? Definately with my chiro!
