Famous Name Owen
is a Scottish former footballer.Archdeacon began his career with local side Gourock United before signing for Celtic in August 1982. A versatile player, he was usually employed at left back, although he was equally happy anywhere in defence. An injury dented his confidence however and he became a peripheral figure at Celtic Park in his last few seasons.
After playing the piano for many years, he decided that the keys would not work for a rockabilly band, so at age 17 he purchased and taught himself double bass, letting him play rockabilly with best friend and band mate, Chris Cheney.During their live shows, Owen is known for pulling his "bass stunts", most notably standing on the bass (or letting Chris Cheney stand on it), tilting it on an angle, resting his right foot on the curve by the f-hole and his left foot over the belly of the bass near the bottom of the fingerboard.
