The police had an idea he might be up to no good too. But the day they finally raided his shop brought more than a few surprises. 2,865 of them in fact.

Adored by fans for the uncompromising emotional power of his band, his distinctive playing and bruising voice, he was also revered by his peers, who acknowledged him as a highly individual electric guitar virtuoso.
