THE SHADOWS as a group do not exist anymore - however the 4 original members of the band are still appearing in public occasionally. The lead guitarist - the soul of the band - Hank. B. Marvin has produced his own albums. His latest CD “ HANK MARVIN Guitar Player” covers a lot of goodies like “Ticket To Ride”, Eleanor Rigby”, “Petit Fleur” , Hotel California” or “American Pie” Number 2 - Bruce Welch - is touring with his own band and appears on festivals. Number 3, Brian Bennett, the drummer,also appears occasionally, very much appraised by his fans as one of the best drummers in this field of music.
The original drummer - Tony Meehan - and the original bass guitarist - Jet Harris - went their own ways. When they teamed up to record “Diamonds”, a title written by the Jerry.Lordan, the composer of APACHE , they had a real hit. After Jet had an accident things became quiet for the two. Only recently they have reappeared on stage again.
.The bass guitar players changed several times. After Jet Harris left Brian Locking took over his part , adding the sound of the harmonica. Brian Locking today is frequently appearing on local stages,getting a lot of appreciation for his outstanding harmonica artistry. John Farrar, John Rostill and Alan Jones took over the part of the bass player until the band dissolved in the mid-80s.
