Synopsis

Best known for his unique musical style and blindingly fast hybrid picking technique, English guitarist Albert Lee is often referred to within the music industry as the ""guitar player's guitar player,"" renowned for his work across several genres of music and for the respect that he has garnered from other industry giants. This comprehensive biography tells the entire story of Lee's long career and personal experiences, beginning with his upbringing in south London and his early experimentations with skiffle music (the British equivalent of American rockabilly). The story continues into the 1960s, through Lee's career in Chris Farlowe's Thunderbirds and the British rock and country group Heads, Hands, and Feet before covering Lee's move to the United States in the 1970s and his subsequent work with Eric Clapton, the Crickets, Emmylou Harris and the Hot Band, the Everly Brothers, and, more recently, with Bill Wyman and with Hogan's Heroes.Throughout the work, the author sets Lee's career against the background of changes in popular music and assesses how Lee, as a British artist with nomadic Romany roots, has impacted traditionally ""American"" musical genres. The work includes 66 photographs, many from Lee's personal collection, two appendices, and an extensive bibliography.
