Victor Harold Flick (born 14 May 1937 in Hill Crescent, Worcester Parkmarker, Surreymarker, England) is a guitarist, most famous for playing the guitar riff in the "James Bond Theme". Before that, he also played the guitar riff in the theme tune of the popular early 1960s TV show Juke Box Jury. As a member of The John Barry Seven, he appeared on every episode of BBC TV's Drumbeat during 1959.

Apart from his early 1960s work as the distinctive lead guitarist in the The John Barry Seven, Flick was a much in demand session player, and featured on many early sixties UK pop records.

He has worked with many notable artists, including Tom Jones, Eric Clapton, and Jimmy Page. One of Flick's legendary guitars, a Clifford Essex Paragon De Luxe, stands in honour at the Rock and Roll Hall of Famemarker in Cleveland, Ohiomarker.

Flick also collaborated with Merchant Ivory Film as composer/music arranger for Autobiography of a Princess (1975), The Europeans (1979), Quartet (1981), Heat and Dust (1983).

In 2005, Flick returned to the world of James Bond by contributing to Christopher Lennertz's score for the video game From Russia with Love. The game was developed by Electronic Arts and starred the original Bond actor Sean Connery.

In 2008 his autobiography, Vic Flick, Guitarman (ISBN 978-1593933081), was published by Bearmanor Media.
