Hank Brian Marvin (born Brian Robson Rankin, 28 October 1941) is an English t, vocalist and songwriter. He is best known as the lead guitarist for the Shadows, a group which primarily performed instrumentals and was the backing band for Cliff Richard, and subsequently for Marvin, Welch & Farrar. Hank Marvin was born Brian Robson Rankin in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. As a child, he played banjo and piano. After hearing Buddy Holly, he decided to learn the guitar.
Marvin is famous for having a distinctive guitar sound and appearance, primarily using a clean sound with very high reverb and vibrato, which primarily gives a dreamy effect to the sound. Incidently, in cockney rhyming slang, Hank Marvin's name is one of the ways often used as to signify hunger: "I'm Hank Marvin" "I'm starvin'" (with or without the obligatory expletive!).
