    Duane is a true gentleman. I had the privilege of meeting, and speaking with him at NAMM, a few years back. I came away very positively impressed with the man, his character and the humble nature he exudes. I heard him on the radio as a youngster. I was familiar with his name, although it was sometime later that I learned the names of some of the songs I heard associated with Duane Eddy. I’ve always loved that rolling style, the bassy sound of his guitar and the feel of his playing, strong, but never harsh.

    The interview was interesting. He came across as a sincere fellow and certainly is not egotistical, in the slightest.

    I bought many of his albums when I was a teenager. Songs of our Heritage (1960-61) is one of my favorites.
    He is very talented and probably helped Gretsch to sell many guitars!

    We love Duane and Deed! Kind, big hearted people who are genuine through and through. Young people need to pay attention to the contribution that Duane has brought to American music, he is a Giant. A soft spoken Giant with a HUGE Twangin Gretsch guitar tone that rattles your bones. He turned my Dad onto guitar as a kid the second his music hit the airwaves along w Chet. From my childhood, the stereo console would throb with haunting sounds of his original tones. The Lonely One will always be my #1. and that DeArmond oil can trem sound w tank verb (not spring mind you, chamber)
