Jet Harris-

 

21 Mar 2011 ... The Shadows first and greatest bass guitarist was Jet Harris, who has died aged 71

 




 

 

I have always been a big fan of Cliff Richard and The Shadows.
Last year I had the great pleasure of meeting one of my heroes - Jet Harris of The Shadows.
Many thanks to 'me old mate' Colin Pryce-Jones of The Rapiers who invited us as along to a night of nostalgia.
We really enjoyed the show and found Jet to be a really down to earth funny man. The Rapiers were the nearest thing to the Shads that I have ever heard,
and Colin is truly a great guitarist. It was also nice for Suzi to meet Billie Davies again after so many years. Thank you all for a great night. I am hoping to write a couple of songs for The Rapiers next album. Jet was a great bloke and will be sadly missed.
