Eddie Bertrand 1945-2012

by admin  7th Nov 2012 Comments [22]

Surf guitar pioneer Eddie Bertrand has passed away from cancer at the age of 67. Bertrand formed the Belairs with his high school classmate Paul Johnson in 196o, going on to unleash the classic “Mr. Moto” and several other excellent surf instrumentals. He left the Belairs in pursuit of a harder-edged sound, which he found with Eddie & the Showmen, a popular live attraction in the surf-crazy South Bay area of his native Southern California. His heavily picked, driving leads during the Showmen era revealed a big Dick Dale influence. Eddie Bertrand’s special brand of guitar artistry puts him in the top echelon of surf guitarists and his recordings deserve an exalted place in any music collection. (Dave Gnerre)

    Virtually all of whatever you point out happens to be supprisingly precise and it makes me ponder the reason why I hadn’t looked at this in this light before. This article truly did switch the light on for me as far as this particular subject goes. But at this time there is actually one particular position I am not too comfy with so while I make an effort to reconcile that with the central theme of the position, permit me see what all the rest of the subscribers have to point out.Well done.

    Hey there, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog site in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, superb blog!
