    Obviously, Keef is just anxiously 'showing off' the brand new RING he just got (he,he).

    Probably little known in the USA apart from a brief stint with Macca ... Mick Green ...

    This pic might be after Johnny Kidd had tragically died but ..
    They had a sound and style way ahead of most others, indeed the "fab four" were said to acknowledge them as early '60s rivals.
    Viva ...Johnny Kidd and the Pirates.

    I'd guess my biggest influence on wanting a Tele was Bruce Springsteen. Other than that I just always thought they looked cool.

    After Springsteen it was Muddy Waters in my musical journey of discovery.
