Guitar Legend by Viktalon Guitar Legend by Viktalon
The ones who created history, the ones who was betrayed by history itself.

Unbeatable, yet unknown to many.

Back in the days I had A Bass, Just like Paul McCartney's from the Beatles a (Hofner Bass.)Then I had A Fender Mustang 2 Bass. Now I Only Have An Ovation Guitar. A friend of mine gave it to me. The Action is really good. And it sounds Great. I'm Still Learning how to play it. I'm not a Pro.
ON the Drums I Had A Pearl Set 4 Pieces. Then I Had A Ludwig Drum Set with Zildjian Cymbals. Cost A lot of money. Then I had Hard Times, So I no longer Have the Drums, But I still Have my Guitar that my Friend gave me, I treasure it well, Great memories.

I agree with you. All these stuff really cost a lot of money, quite a fancy toy for rich people. What happened to your Mustang? Have you ever played the legendary Fender Stratocaster, Telecaster, or the Gibson Les Paul?

Money was a big issue back then? First on the Mustang. Someone stole it. I Was Furious. Yes I Have played A Fender, Telecaster, and A Gibson Les Paul. I Loved the Gibson Les Paul Better. In My opinion is my Favorite out of the three. I Also Played A Kramer, A Jackson, And Many Others.

Fenders have been the primary target for guitar thieves. So you play a lot of guitars, which one do you find out to be the best and most favorited?

Sadly, this happens so often that many great musicians aren't recognized for their talent and contributions to music history.

You might want to add the group's name and members in the artists comments and a link to a YouTube video (if there is one) so that others of the younger generations can experience the music.

Through my work with Memories In Music (UK) there are many such musicians that I am just discovering, and I was a child of the 60's :) and a big fan of British Rock.

Nice draw, btw, I love the B&W contrast. Very wonderfully retro and appropriate! :D

Thanks for your suggestion, sounds like a good idea.

There are too many underated but great musicians out there, only a handful actually received overwhelming worldwide credit. The golden era of 50's to 60's are always the most memorable moment of the pop music history but most people only know Elvis and Beatles and nowadays people talk about MJ. They all are commercially success but that dosen't mean that they are unbeatable in terms of the talent and capability. The Shads are not really famous among casual audiences especially younger generation but have been deeply influencial among professional musicians due to their innnovative performance. You can easily find any guitarist who quote Hank Marvin as his influence (Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page and even Santana are just a few among them) while Roy Orbison is influencial for his vocal (he inspired Bruce Springsteen)but it's not likely to find anyone who quote John Lennon or Elvis as an influence and both aren't well-known for both vocal and guitar playing, but more as superidols. Furthermore, The Beatles were too short-lived unlike the Shadows who had been playing for more than half a century and still able to hit the pop music chart but the Beatles brief resurgence in the mid-90's was a total failure. People only imitate Elvis's fashion and hairstyle, not so for his vocal.
