Personalities | Dave Edmunds | Seventies | Rock

(Guitar, vocals, b. 1944)

Multi-talented Welshman Edmunds’ first exposure was as lead guitarist on Love Sculpture’s 1968 hit ‘Sabre Dance’, followed by the UK No. 1 and US Top 5 single ‘I Hear You Knocking’. After building Rockfield, a state-of-the-art studio, in south Wales his recording career took a backseat as he became an in-demand producer, working with, amongst others, Shakin’ Stevens. Edmunds subsequently formed Rockpile with Nick Lowe but the band’s recorded output failed to match their live shows.
