Growing up in the early 60s in England, I have vivid memories of grainy black and white, small-screen television images of The Shadows, their tailored grey suits, their co-ordinated “Shadows’ Walk” dance steps, their smiling faces, and somehow I always knew Hank’s guitar was red.

However, most of all, it was the music, and their sound. I was totally captivated.

And have been ever since.

Their music inspired me and gave me permission to be a guitarist. Without them, it is hard to know what I would be doing now. Their music has been a constant for me.

I was also inspired by their songwriting and the compositions of Jerry Lordan.


This album contains some of their wonderful tracks and some of my own, clearly inspired by Hank, Bruce, Brian, Tony, Jet and the rest of the wonderful musicians that were The Shadows.
