Around that time Johnny asked me to play for him on his instrumental theme for The Moonshot (Footsteps on The Moon), which was the theme music for ITV’s coverage of The Moon landings. Soon after, Johnny started his LP (Movements). I played lead guitar throughout this LP, mostly with a wha fuzz peddle, which I still have today. Johnny loved the sound of it and asked me to use it most of the time.
I have seen the re-release of Movements on CD. I was surprised to discover that Warner Brothers had made a big mistake and credited the Tom Jones previous guitarist with playing on this album. Harold Fisher the drummer on the album rang me and said ‘who the F*** is this guy who has been credited for your work on the Movements LP?’ I told him I was very upset that someone else had stolen my thunder, even though it wasn’t this guitarist’s own fault.
The guitarist credited is very good in his own right; country rock, etc, but he does not play in the same style as me.
