It's Jim Gretty, but I don't know whether it's filmed in the actual store or a studio set. The road outside is certainly not from a view inside Hessy's store in Stanley Street which is where the shop was located at the time.

Thank you very much, Bill!! ;)

I have read somewhere that the shop seen at that video clip is actually Rushworth's...

...Bob Hobbs did work at Rushworths and wrote a regular guitar column for Mersey Beat with Hu Birch. They both ran a guitar school and were members of a guitar club.

Are these guitar columns included at your website??

Best!! ;)

The shop looks more like Ruyshworths in Whitrechapel than Hessy's, even though Jim Gretty is there. No, I haven't put any of the guitar columns on the site.

Maybe he was there because it was organised a kind of show at Rushworth's, inviting he elevant musicians, as the cameras went there. I have read anywhere that the other urbanely dressed person that the camera focuses on was a certain T P McKenna, an Anglo Irish character actor...

Do you know if Bob Hobbs -as Jim Gretty seemed to do- also offered guitar tuition to the early Beatles??

Thank you very much for your help!! ;)

Here is a page featuring many photos from this event - including one illustrating how John Rushworth replaced Bob Hobbs by means of manipulation - obviously a promo job.
