PS and what is this telecaster lookalike?

Postby Gatwick1946 » Tue Nov 14, 2017 12:50 pm

I just happened to catch the last 3rd of Children in Need Rocks The 80s, (BBC1 last night) (not really my favourite decade), but I did enjoy a few brief glimpses of the house band - credited as "Steve Sidwell and his band". They backed Boy George on a version of Purple Rain and I quite enjoyed the guitar solo. At 01:23:22 the camera rests on the guitarist for a whole 4 seconds; the guitar was based on a telecaster, but the headstock was different from the usual Fender type.

Can anyone identify it please?

Kindest Regards

Don't know. Could it be Adam Goldsmith? He sometimes plays for Steve Sidwell and there's YouTube footage of him playing a Tele-style guitar. But I didn't see the programme.

No, not AG... older with a beard. I didn't watch it either, just found it on iPlayer and skipped to the spot mentioned in the original post. Could it be one of the Strictly guys?

I've now done the same and thought the guy looked familiar, maybe from Strictly. I also noticed Andrea Grant of Strictly in the backing vocal group.
