Thank you, sir!
Eddie Cochran -What'd I Say
Pre-dating "the first rock & roll" record by 5 years, providing Chuck with his intro riff...
thought the question was guitar heavy, not heavy guitar...
Mickey Baker was best known in the '50s for "Love Is Strange," as part of the duo Mickey and Sylvia. But he also did a lot of session work, and in 1959 put out the guitar instrumental album The Wildest Guitar on Atlantic.
Link Wray was the first at a lot of things we call rock. He invented fuzz tone by cutting slits in his speakers. He had the second home studio after Les Paul That he built himself called the Three Track Shack and he was the first person in rock to self produce his records. He was also the first punk rocker. He should be at the Helm of the Rock and Roll HOF right next to Chuck Berry.
True, I should give him a try from what I’ve heard I was never wow’d maybe it’s just the style.
Yea Berry and Holly are probably the most “famous” electric guitarists/front men from the 50s.
Maybe I should have said guitar playing frontmen, as it seems there’s a lot of back up electric but it’s not necessarily the guy singing or leader of the band?
Yeah..reading your whole OP and not just the title, my answer was probably not responsive. Although, in his work with Mary Ford, they were an act and arguably frontmen. I just figured he deserves a mention in any discussion of guitar and the 50's.
I’ll give him another try, I honestly use to hate everything prior to 1990, I was born in 85 lol.
I took me until I was 27 or so to actually like Led Zeppelin! Figure that one out.
How about Bo Diddley?
We didn’t like country in 1967 and thought Johnny Cash was a square, but now everything is Americana and Johnny Cash is god! I expect your musical tastes will come full circle as you get older?
