Rory strat on TV

Postby Stevo » 06 May 2016, 08:40

I've been watching a programme called Tonight at the London Palladium on Wednesdays on ITV (UK), and I've noticed that the guitarist in the session band on stage uses a Rory Strat. You just catch a glimpse of it every now and then, but it's definitely a Rory model.
Good to see the Rory strat on TV.

Isn't that a show that was aired in the early 70s?

Even before then in the 60's, it was called Sunday Night At The London Palladium hosted by Bruce Forsythe ,The Shadows were often on.

Thanks. I remember watching it with my parents. Obviously I would only remember it from the 70s. I was just a wee kid in the 60s.

Watching it now.. Doesn't look like the guitarist in the house band on this show tonight, has a Fender RG Tribute stratocaster?

No. He seems to be playing a Musicman type guitar tonight. Typical.
