Duane Eddy and A Band He Couldn't Refuse

Don Snowden, Los Angeles Times, 27 July 1983

DUANE EDDY's "twangy" guitar sound on hits like 'Rebel-Rouser' established him as a major star during the golden era of rock instrumentals, so his return to active performing in America after 15 years – he plays the Beverly Theatre Friday – is news in itself. But on top of that, he's also assembled an all-star backing band that's a rock historian's dream.
