THE SOUNDS OF SILENCE
LONDON, ENGLAND -
OF GERRY KIRK:
Gerry is the guy on the right with the Hofner Verithin and
Selmer Zodiac Twin 30.
Stage at The Granada Cinema,
The Band in Sydney, Australia - 1966.
have had a Selmer “Truvoice Zodiac Twin 30”
amplifier since, I thought, 1961.
(1963? - Ed) When I
bought the amplifier from Lou Davis,
all my mates said “I was mad” the reason being that no-one was buying
Selmer’s anymore. I was impressed
with the sound and appearance and within a month of me purchasing the amplifier
‘Gerry and the Pacemakers’ went for Selmers.
After that of course the popularity soared.
I have worked with the Rolling Stones as a support band three times and
on the second occasion all the ‘Stones amps packed up and they used all our
Selmer’s! Brian Jones, the
original ‘Stones lead guitarist used my Selmer amplifier on that occasion.
GERRY'S SELMER ZODIAC, WHICH HE STILL OWNS !! :
