Jet Harris – The Shadows bass player RIP

We here at LTW! Are major fans of the Shadows. Their run of hits with those twanging guitars are pure yet atmospheric pop so it was with sadness we noted the death of Jet Harris, their bass player and the man who came up with their quite brilliant name that captured the fleeting nature of their brisk yet atmospheric instrumentals.
But if you really wanted to hear the great stuff have a listen some of his solo tunes like Man With The Golden Arm, a darker twangier series of singles that reflected his darker, heavier personality.
