Hank Marvin regrets not taking George Harrison's advice
Although the band did collaborate with Cliff Richard on many tracks with vocals, they rarely sang on songs that came out solely under their own name.
However, Marvin has revealed that The Beatles' electric guitar player George Harrison encouraged them to change their approach following the release of Don't Make My Baby Blue.
"He told me how much he loved the single," Marvin commented.
"'Take my advice,' he said - 'forget about being an instrumental group and follow up on the vocals'."
However, The Shadows did not take this advice - a decision that Marvin said he now regrets.
Indeed, he stated that the band were "idiots" for ignoring Harrison's suggestion.
The band achieved considerable chart success on instrumental records such as FBI, Apache and The Rise and Fall of Flingel Bunt.
George Harrison's appreciation of the band is evident in the first ever original composition that was professionally recorded by The Beatles - an instrumental entitled Cry For A Shadow.Posted on 28 Sep 2009 15:15 to category : Band / Celebrity News
