He Doesn't Want To Make Them Cry or Sing

This is the headstock of my very old, but trusty Fender Stratocaster that I used to “…make them cry or sing” when I played Dire Straits “Sultans of Swing” live in a pub in Leeds (when I say Leeds I mean out in the sticks in the back of beyond!).

The guitar was “given” to me by the band’s keyboard player and singer Les who owned the local video library…so now I’m dating it! Of course, it was the audience who were tending to cry when we played this fine song…we had a “get ’em off” tray that used to circulate while we played. We always said, if we raised £400 we’d stop playing…the band played on, we weren’t that bad!
