Gibson hails legendary backing guitarists
Legendary vocalist Elvis Presley would have turned 75 last week, on the same day that enduring pop icon David Bowie reached his 63rd birthday.
Gibson stated that on the surface, these two artists have very little in common.
However, it said they do share one notable similarity - many of their records feature some truly great backing guitarists.
The manufacturer said Bowie was also lucky to have worked with "some of rock's most magnificent players" over the years.
Gibson singled out Earl Slick, Robert Fripp and Stevie Ray Vaughan as notable examples, as well as the late Mick Ronson, who appeared on early Bowie classics such as Life on Mars? and Changes.Posted on 11 Jan 2010 14:00 to category : Instruments News
