Dunlop Herco Picks


Billy always plays with Dunlop Herco Flex 50 medium picks and he has them custom made in in Manchester City blue with Embossed DUFFY and Iron Cross graphic.

Billy was first turned onto the Dunlop picks by Johnny Thunders he tells the story, “Thunders gave me one of those picks, himself, back in ’77 or ’78 when he was playing Manchester University.  He was at a payphone and he pulled one out of his pocket while he was on the call and handed it to me.  I’ve never played anything else since.  Another thing: I play with the pick “sideways,” compared to the traditional grip, and always have done.  Not a lot of people know that.”
