The Attic Classic: Eddie Angel has been hard-wired to playing rock n roll guitar since he was 12 years old. In interviews he lays the blame (or gives credit to) his two older sisters, teenagers who played those early 1950’s rock n roll records around their house all the time. And of course the early Beatles records, which inspired him to play guitar and be in a band.

With a career spanning over five decades, a stop at any point in time would reveal Eddie’s devotion to playing guitar as the basis to his development as a songwriter, in-demand session player, entertainer and record company owner. In the 70’s, Eddie played with popular Albany lounge band Tino and The Revlons, then toured with the Star Spangled Washboard Band. Those tours led to his joining Washington DC rockabilly legend Tex Rubinowitz and the Bad Boys. Back to Albany in the 80’s, then a move to Nashville with the promising rockabilly band Jeannie Smith & The Hurricanes. In the 90’s, there’s a leap across the Atlantic with The Planet Rockers; back again for caveman rock with The Neanderthals, and of course the ongoing instrumental guitar outfit Los Straitjackets.

For the Attic Classic, we’ll go back to the period with Tex when Eddie began writing guitar instrumentals and recorded his first single, “Rampage” in 1981.
