Tim Renwick:

One of two (alternate lead) guitarists in a fine little band called Quiver. Playing 'simple rock music' and was 'often classed with bands like Brinsley Schwarz', Tim says in Beat Instrumental, Dec. 71. Often played Dylan's "It Takes A Lot To Laugh..." or the Beatles' "I Saw Her Standing There" as the finishing number of a set. My (Christer's) memories of their gig at The Lyceum in '70 are of a gently rocking band in a folksy, U.S. West Coast  vein - with just a touch of psychedelia. Twin lead guitars - always was a sucker for that. But this was definitively  not a blues band, mind you!

A band which, for the sake of the record,  amongst others featured bassist Bruce Thomas, ex-Village.

Tim Renwick started out in Little Women, then joined Jackie Lomax (looking for good musicians to record with) and later Juniors Eyes.

An so to Quiver. Who did record - two albums in '71 and '72. Cover left from Sutherland Brothers & Quiver: "Reach For The Sky" from '75, feat. Tim Renwick.

He later played with Elton John, Frankie Miller, Ian Matthews etcetera and became a respected session guitarist.

I've caught Eric Clapton twice on stage as a "solo" artist: once with Albert Lee on 2nd guitar and once with Tim Renwick. Two beautiful sidemen, of course. But in my humble opinion Tim Renwick's gorgeous Strat tones suited Clapton's sound better.

Mr. Renwick was a Fender Strat man with Quiver already - and he seems to have stayed true to the brand.
