Guitar Classics

Classic Guitars-2887

‘My guitar is not a thing.It’s an extension of myself. It’s who I am.’

Joan Jet

 

Guitar Classics is best described as a source of eye candy to anyone with a love of guitars. Located in Webbs Road in Clapham, the shop opened in 1997. Graham was originally a maths teacher living in Chelsea but following the sale of his flat in Gunter Road, to his neighbour, John Lydon, he moved south of the river and set up the shop.

Vintage Fender Stratocaster, Gretsch, Rickenbacker and Gibson guitars are all sold here and clients include the Maccabees, Maxi Jazz , Mark Owen, The Lavender Hillbillies and ‘a guy who raced in the Tour de France’!! The most expensive guitar sold to date was a Gibson Les Paul which fetched £9000.

Actor Cokey Falkow

portrait of actor Cokey Falkow, London

Actor Cokey Falkow was recently described by Time Out as ‘Fantastically Intelligent’. He is also multi talented, having a acting career that has seen him work worldwide, filming commercial campaigns and supporting roles in international film. And if that weren’t enough, Cokey has established himself as an edgy stand up act.

Recently I was fortunate to spend the afternoon with Cokey shooting on location in London. Great styling by Jade Alice Galston at ‘Fertha‘.

You’ll never believe who I had in the back of my cab !!

Cabs to Holland_April 2015_Legion_

Back in May a fleet of over 100 London black cabs took as many World War veterans to Holland to visit sites of The Battle of Arnhem and to remember lost friends. This feature for ‘The British Legion’, highlighted the great efforts and generosity of many of the cab drivers.

On the 17th Sept it is the 71st anniversary of the conflict and later in the month I will blog photos of the trip to commemorate ‘Operation Market Garden’ and to remember the huge sacrifice so many made.

“I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,
And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking,
And a gray mist on the sea’s face, and a gray dawn breaking.”

War Veterans Reunited

This December will be the 75th Anniversary of ‘The Battle of The River Plate’ – the first big battle of WW2 and the only combat to take place in South America.

In September, 3 veterans from the conflict, were reunited for the first time. With an average age of 93, old comrades Basil, Jim and Frank met in Cambridge. The British Legion has devoted  7 pages to this rare reunion.
