Shadows Legend Jet Harris Dies
Harris was with The Shadows until 1962 and played on many of their biggest hits including "Apache," a track that inspired a generation of British guitarists from Jimmy Page to Eric Clapton.
Harris still played gigs until recently when he canceled all appearances because of illness. Sir Cliff Richard paid tribute to Jet Harris: "Jet was exactly what The Shadows and I needed – a backbone holding our sound together." more on this story
