Sharleen Spiteri purchased Fender Telecaster 'to be like Joe Strummer'
A Fender Telecaster was the first choice of electric guitar for Texas frontwoman Sharleen Spiteri.
Speaking to the Guardian about her love of the musical instrument, the singer explained that she had first purchased an electric guitar at the age of 18 when she joined Texas.
"I knew exactly what I wanted: a black-and-white Telecaster, the same as Joe Strummer," said Spiteri.
"For me, The Clash have always been the ultimate rock'n'roll band."
The musician explained that the Telecaster makes a beautiful sound and is the perfect weight for players.
He explained that his father had owned one and allowed him to play it on special occasions when he was a child.Posted on 5 Jul 2010 10:02 to category : Band / Celebrity News
