Guy Mackenzie with Jet Harris, founder member of the Shadows (Drifters)
Guy Mackenzie with Jet Harris, founder member of the Shadows (Drifters), asking him if he’d ever used a Supersound or knew Alan Wootton. Jet’s first electric bass was a Framus Star bass, identical to the example branded “Besson”, in my Collection!

Jet Harris (6th July 1939 – 18th March 2011), probably the UK’s first bass guitarist, a delightful and gentle person and I’m just glad I finally got to meet him. And his music will live on..
