Eric Stewart talks about the Rotosound photo
It would have been 1967. We are holding my circa 1958 Gibson Les Paul Custom, that I bought from Albert Lee after using Jimmy Page’s Custom on the WF and the Mindbenders hit ‘The Game of Love’. in 1965.
We did use Rotosound strings in those days. I still have the guitar, very modified since that picture though!
Eric Stewart and Graham Gouldman both used Rotosound strings in the late 1960’s and were featured in Rotosound advertising.
