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
