Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Duane Eddy is one of the few guitarists who can claim to have invented a new sound and style.
When he came on the scene in 1958, Eddy developed a technique using a low-note guitar riff that has launched several hits, such as Bruce Springsteen’s “Born to Run,” the Beatles’ “Day Tripper” and the Rolling Stones’ “Satisfaction.”
Eddy eventually became the most successful instrumentalist in rock history, charting 15 top 40 singles from 1958 through 1963 and selling more than 100 million records worldwide.
In an exclusive interview with The Guitar Show with Andy Ellis, Eddy talked about his latest album, Road Trip. Released in June of 2011, Road Trip was recorded in Sheffield, England and produced by former Pulp guitarist Richard Hawley.
No doubt, the 11 tracks feature the classic twang Eddy made famous 50 years ago.
