An early episode of American bandstand hosted by the late Dick Clark featuring the great 'twang' guitarist Duane Eddy. This one titled "Forty Miles of Bad Roads", an instrumental with Duane on his signature GRETSCH CHET ATKINS model electric guitar. Chances are about 100% good that though staged outside in a parking lot so they could use the tractors, if you look closely, the guitar and bass are not plugged into any amplifiers so I'd say they are lip-syncing which was done almost exclusively back then on all those shows. Check out the drummer only using a floor tom-tom too. Duane is 79 years old and one of the few remaining rock icons from the 50's and one of my idols.
