What a co-incidence! Our local ABC (BBC) radio station is right now interviewing Hank B Marvin. The story of his early days was fascinating.

Hank has no trace of his Geordie accent and almost sounds as if he is from Liverpool.

Hank told an interesting story about Cliff buying him a better guitar than the cheap Japanese one he was using when they first met. They decided on a red Fender Stratocaster with gold fittings. You could not buy them new in UK at the time as guitar imports were embargoed and only the odd second hand ones were available. They had to have someone bring them in from the USA.

Hank and Hank Marvin's Gypsy Jazz group are playing in one of our local town halls in October, I will be going.

The radio presenter said his favourite Hank B Marvin track was Sacha, not heard often
