Twenty five years after releasing his last record, Duane Eddy, one of the truly legendary guitarists is back for his second show at the De La Warr Pavilion.
Duane learned his craft in assorted clubs and honky tonks when he was a teenager, developing the 'twangy' sound he's since become known for. The mercurial figure of Lee Hazelwood looms large in Duane Eddy's early recording career. While he would go on to work with Nancy Sinatra and enjoy a career of his own as a solo artist, the work he did with Eddy proved to be without compare.
Eddy's second single, Rebel Rouser, was a US Top 10 smash in late '58. Featuring doo wop outfit The Rivingtons on backing vocals and “rebel yelps” and championed by legendary television impresario Dick Clark, it preceded a further 32 charting singles and over 25 albums that would see the man sell in excess of 100 million records. In 1994, the Grammy Award-winning American guitarist was inducted into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame.
Duane will be playing tracks form his recent release, Road Trip - co-written and co-produced with Richard Hawley - alongside Hawley's own band.
