The artist is still around..at Holan. Same time, probably same fellow community with Anneke Gronloh and Weiteke Van Dort.

These "Indo rock" entertainers were locals and entertained at various nite spots in Indonesia during the 60's...similar to big band and local entertainers in Singapore cabarets, nite clubs and dance halls, till nationalists shunned all these as Western influence and the industry practically died. It happened in Malaysia too, thats why all these disappeared. I suppose those Indonesians found it better off migrating to their colonist master's land than being shunned or displaced by nationalist or religious society. I guess that was the history. I'm sure The Ventures, The Shadows and British Invasion genre groups were their major influence, so was our Pop Yeh Yeh.. The Cliff Richard and Shadows wannabe..

Note for note, the song is the same as compared to the "modern" version! I don't know what to feel.

I think the intro by Rudy is taken from the Ventures music " Nite rider"

All our pop bands during the 60's seem to be heavily influenced by 60's British Invasion pop, the like of Cliff, Shadows, Beatles, etc...hairstyle pun copy!

BTW, I find this one so similar to one track some 60's popular Malay artist popularized.

Yup.... this was the popular style of playing the electric guitar in the 60s.... it caught on....

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/0Zou2V-e0zo" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

p/s the electric guitar Hank is using in the video is the Fender Stratocaster Hank Marvin edition.... and it is solid gold frets, buttons everything.... USD35,000.... :eek:

This one is gold-plated and played by "Slowhand" Eric Clapton.... if the drummer looks familiar, that's Phil Collins from Genesis and the back-up guitarist is Mark Knopfler... this is one of the best "Live" blues performance by Eric Clapton "Same Old Blues"

Haha! and amazing about guitars, the massive cost, the pride of ownership...just like cars.
I can never ever play the guitar. My fingers aren't meant for playing guitars but for superb DIY skills in those areas I do.
Just spent the afternoon fitting an underseat subwoofer in my small car. The usual meticulous work..takes hours and my own sweet time, BETTER QUALITY than ANY auto accessories shop will do.
Maybe now I can listen to Hank Marvin Apache in my car at a higher level of hifi...got bass mah! Before void of deep bass.
