One Hour BBC Special on John Williams, Guitarist


John Williams - GuitarHere’s a one hour BBC special of fifty years of John Williams including interviews with Williams and others such as Julian Bream. What a treat. Here’s the BBC blurb: “Fifty years of performances from guitarist John Williams that takes in classical masterworks, the prog rock of Sky and comedy with Eric Sykes, as well as duets with Julian Bream.” Haha, one old clip says that “a rock guitarist can be turned out in 12 hours flat but it takes a classical guitarist 12 years” of dedicated practice. I love those crazy old comments that are so outrageously ridiculous. There’s a partial truth in there of course. Williams himself is down to earth in all the clips though, love that guy. Anyway, enjoy.
