During the 2017 NAMM Show in Anaheim, Calif., Gretsch hosted a Tribute Concert honoring Duane Eddy and Cliff Gallup with special performances by Eddy himself, Jeff Beck, Darrel Higham, Paul Pigat & Cousin Harley.
“I wish Cliff could have been here,” says Eddy in the exclusive Gretsch video clip below. “It would have meant a lot to him I’m sure. He has no idea how venerated he is, but I do, and it’s very nice of everybody to make a fuss over an old man like me and I love it.”
The clip also includes interviews with Pigat and Higham, who explain why it was important for them and the legendary Beck to take part in the special evening.
