The Shadows on Facebook

Facebook – The Shadows. The Shadows were the fore-runners of the guitar bands of the British pop scene of the swinging sixties, and they had a historic impact on the British pop scene of the era. John Lennon famously once claimed that The Shadows were one of the only things in British music “worth listening to” before The Beatles came along. Beginning life as the Drifters in the late fifties, they changed the name to The Shadows to avoid confusion with an American group with the same name and initially provided the musical backing for Cliff Richard in the very popular “Cliff Richard Show”.
