As a fifteen year old teenager starting out as an aspiring lead guitarist, I could never have imagined ever meeting our heroes The Shadows, let alone playing in bands with them and being invited to play on Bruce's shows - 

These moments were indeed priceless!



This was me at fifteen with my first guitar 

Priceless moments . . . . . .

My favourite picture, I used to try and imagine what it would be like playing with a drummer like Brian Bennett, I now know.
