Be Bop Deluxe's Bill Nelson Reunited With 'Axe Victim' Guitar

Be Bop Deluxe

(Classic Rock) Former Be Bop Deluxe frontman Bill Nelson has been reunited with a guitar that featured on the sleeve of their album 'Axe Victim' and which he hadn't seen since the 1970s.

Nelson was pictured with the white Hoyer Les Paul lookalike on the rear cover of the band's 1974 debut album, but he sold it soon after to a local musician in his hometown of Wakefield, West Yorkshire, in the UK.

Now a group of fans have tracked the guitar down and, after paying what modest Nelson considers an inflated price, have returned it to him. Nelson tells TeamRock:

"The guitar originally went from me to Ada Wilson of the band Strangeways who then sold it to Stuart Adamson of The Skids. When I first worked with The Skids, Stuart wanted to give it back to me as he thought it had become iconic and that it should remain with me, but I told him he should keep it and look after it."
