Mike Oldfield's "Tubular Bells" Tele on eBay!


"This guitar is the original 1967 Fender Telecaster used by Mike Oldfield and was the only electric guitar sound source on his breakthrough Tubular Bells debut LP.

The guitar was formerly owned by Marc Bolan, it was originally white, has had refins and was then stripped to natural.

The middle pickup is a Bill Lawrence, routed and fitted by Mike Oldfield and his father in their garden shed."

I wonder if Viv Stanshall was bunged in as a deliberately tongue-cheek job, rather than a pretentious MC. He was a bit barking. Now Jeff Wayne's album was narrated by Richard Burton, no less. You're talking about an actOR there, Lee :)

War of the worlds? more like Geoff 'Waynes World'.
People tried to read in all sorts of nonsense in to that LP, it was just a mediocre soundtrack, even if it did have Richard 'Broadsword calling danny boy, come in danny boy' Burton on it.

:lol: , Mustard Mitt; Sometimes, my guitarist and I have a nice little idea going - then we stop dead. Reason? We can just hear that "On drums, Mr..., on bass, Mr..." etc while we're playing. Kills the idea stone dead. Rather like the tune that smacks of "C'mon everybody, raise your hands in the air. I wanna see those hands clapping"

Choke, barf, retch. Shame on anyone who reads this thread and thinks "what's wrong with that?"
