an excerpt from an Italian TV magazine
back in 1970, when Jeff, Vic and Paul were touring
everywhere in the wake of Yellow
to report that original lead guitarist with Christie,
Elmes, passed away in April.
The familiar intros to San Bernadino
and Iron Horse were played
by Vic, as were many other trademark riffs and solos
of the Christie songs. As well as a talented picker,
Vic also had a strong vocal presence and handled the
lead for I've Got a Feeling
and his own compositions, the most well-known of which
were New York City and
Jo Jo's Band.
Outer Limits' songs keep getting included in various
compilation albums, the latest of which is called
Comes Down, a great collection of songs
from the English beat era. Check it out!
