Brian May on how the Vox amp powered a music revolution
The Vox amp was the box which revolutionised music in the early 1960s and helped British pop groups succeed in conquering the world.
From the Beatles and Yardbirds to the Rolling Stones and the Shadows, the distinctive Vox amplifier became part of their sound and helped power the British beat boom.
Brian May from Queen talks about how the Vox amp helped him to create his successful sound.
And Alan Harding, one of the Vox factory workers of the time, shares his memories of how a small company in unglamorous Dartford hit the big time and created a musical revolution.
Vox Pop: How Dartford Powered the British Beat Boom is broadcast on Friday 27 January at 23:10 GMT on BBC Four and on the iPlayer for seven days afterwards.
