Jet Harris dies


Recommended Posts

I'm posting this here because of his Zeppelin connection, and I couldn't find another thread--please move or delete if necessary.

Jet Harris of the Shadows (I loved the Shadows :'( ) has died.

Obituary

Extract: Harris next teamed up with the former Shadows' drummer Tony Meehan. As Jet Harris and Tony Meehan, they had big hits in 1963 with Diamonds - which reached No 1 - Scarlett O'Hara and Applejack. Among those Harris had inspired to take up the electric bass was future Led Zeppelin member John Paul Jones, who was briefly a member of the Harris-Meehan touring band.
