The Searchers

Posted on: 4th May 2007

As the bassist with the Searchers for 43 years my great passion is guitars and after meeting Guy at one of our shows I checked out the site and was thrilled. I just love those quirky old instruments that might not be the finest or best to play but which are so iconic of my youth. It`s easy to love an old Gibson or a Fender but in the days when all we could get were Hofners and Framus just owning a guitar no matter how good or bad was something special. Like Guy I too have a lot of these fun pieces in my own collection which, by the way, was also the subject of a Guitar & Bass magazine feature. All the best from me to guitar lovers everywhere.
