TWANGIN' AND GRINNIN'






Duane Eddy does the “Cannonball Rag” (1975)

Do guitar geeks and music fans still revere Duane Eddy? Do they even know who he is? The rebel rouser in me certainly hopes so. His IMDb credits reveal he had a career as an actor and a performer on movie soundtracks that was far more extensive than I would have guessed, though it seems he hasn't worked in either capacity for about 12 years. He did, however, get his chrome and hot leather on for Richard Rush in one of the nastier pictures of my youth, The Savage Seven (1968), playing, of all things, a biker named Eddie. Duane, whatever you're doing these days, I hope it's with a twang and a grin to match the ones you put in my heart when I was just a little rocker.

Well, I wouldn't call myself a "guitar geek" but I'm certainly a music fan, and I still really like Duane Eddy; I even have the album pictured! His stuff can be kinda samey, it's true, but it's some really wonderful stuff when you're in the right mood.

And "Rebel Rouser" is one of the best song titles of all time.
