Hank Marvin just isn't cool for today's generations. But the former Shadow was probably one of the first electric guitar heroes. When The Shads decided they could do quite well, thank you, without their singer (and whatever happened to Rich Cliffard?), they created this amazing number one record, called Apache, with a haunting guitar melody instead of a lyric.

These days I understand the Shadows don't speak to each other much. So this, from 2000, is Hank Marvin all alone.
