Duane Eddy Info
Truly one of guitar music’s legendary innovators, Duane Eddy’s importance is immeasurable. He is credited as one of the originators of rock ’n’ roll’s grittier guitar sounds and has been cited as an influence by significant players such as Hank Marvin, Jimmy Page, Steve Cropper, Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, Ry Cooder, George Harrison, Mark Knopfler, Dave Davies of The Kinks and many more
In the late 1950s and early 1960s Duane had a string of hit records produced by the legendary Lee Hazlewood, including "Rebel Rouser," "Peter Gunn" and "Because They're Young," all featuring Duane’s unmistakable signature guitar twang. Duane was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994, and was given the honorary title of "Titan of Twang" by the mayor of Nashville, Tennessee in 2000. In 2004, Duane was presented with the Guitar Player magazine "Legend Award," the second player to receive the rare, prestigious accolade (the first was Les Paul).
