Jet Harris 1939-2011

 A belated RIP for Jet Harris (born Terence Harris; July 6 1939)  who passed away on March 18.  Harris was the original bass player for the great British instrumental group The Shadows (and somtimes back-up band for Cliff Richard). As John Lennon once said,  “Before Clff and the Shadows, there had been nothing worth listening to in British music.”

Yvette Vickers 1928-2010

  Yvette Vickers star of 50's drive classics Attack of the Fifty Foot Woman and The Giant Leeches was found dead in her Benedict Canyon home on April 27. Sad and strange story as reportered here in L.A. Times. She was also a Playboy Playmate and had small roles in Hud and Sunset Blvd.
