Hank Marvin

A major influence on British guitar heroes of the '70s such as Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page, Hank Marvin played lead guitar for the Shadows, one of the U.K.'s top instrumental outfits and backing band for Cliff Richard on most of his hits. Born Brian Robson Rankin on October 28, 1941, Marvin grew up in Newcastle learning guitar, banjo and piano. He played in various skiffle groups around the area, and met up with rhythm guitarist Bruce Welch. After moving to London in 1958, the two were recruited to serve in Cliff Richard's backing band, the Drifters, with Ian Samwell and Terry Smart. Richard's first single "Move It" hit number two on the British charts, and two other singles -- "Living Doll" and "Travellin' Light" -- hit number one the following year. Samwell and Smart left the band -- now called the Shadows, to avoid confusion with the American vocal group -- and were replaced by bassist Jet Harris and drummer Tony Meehan.

The Shadows recorded several sides as an instrumental act in late 1959; one called "Apache" hit number one in the British charts. From 1960-63, the band racked up four number ones and seven Top Ten hits before disbanding in 1968. Marvin, while continuing to appear and record with Cliff Richard, began a solo career with a self-titled album in 1969; it reached number 14 in the album charts. In the early '70s, he reunited with Welch and also John Farrar as Marvin, Welch and Farrar. The trio recorded both an eponymous LP and Second Opinion, and then Marvin and Farrar recorded an additional album as a duo. Marvin moved to Australia and became a Jehovah's Witness in 1973, but later joined a re-formed Shadows. The group resumed recording, and hit the Top Ten in 1978-79 with "Don't Cry for Me Argentina" and "Theme from 'The Deerhunter'."

Hank Marvin's only chart success as a solo act was 1982's Words and Music, which featured the U.K. hit "Don't Talk." He recorded All Alone with Friends in 1983, and then re-appeared in the '90s with four albums -- Into the Light, Heartbeat, Hank Plays Cliff and Hank Plays Holly. ~ John Bush, Rovi

In Going Down the Road Feeling Bad, he's going where the climate suits his clothes. Not a huge difference, unless you are an old f*rt deadhead like me.

I can hear Hank's style in Beck and Gilmour. Sure they were influenced by him. Nice stuff.

What is the name of the song in the Mid Night Cowboy movie. Dustin Hoffman and John Voight played the big stars. I remember the song had lyrics like " I'm going where the weather suits my clothes". Does anyone know the name of the song ?

Ypu can always pick up Hank Marvin's style. He influenced many of today's artists and chek him out on the Shadows Final Concert, DVD or CD. He really loves playing the stuff RIGHT.

That is totally the Jose Cuervo you are a friend of mine guitar. Anybody know which came first, I'm guessing this guy just cause I like the no lyrics, I remember "I kiss all the cowboys then I shoot out the lights" from the 80's I think anyway.

You have to respect someone who has the cajones to cover a Jean-Michel Jarre tune like Oxygene. If you haven't heard Jarre's original version, you should at least check it out.
