This charted in July and became the monster hit that launched the Shadows instrumental career and founded a nation of bespectacled guitarists dreaming of acquiring their very own Fender Stratocaster and stepping out into the glaring spotlight of stardom.
With their immaculate appearance, synchronised dance movements and clean, pure melodic sound, the Shadows chalked up 35 hits of their own not counting another 33 hits with Cliff Richardgiving them more hits than any other British group and securing them a unique place in the annals of popular music.
Concert audiences are invited to relive fantastic hits such as:. In the company of Geoff, Keith, Tony, Tim and Binks the audience is taken on a tour of the Shadows career, with plenty of humour to make it a night out to remember. Those of you who follow rugby can think of Keith and Geoff as the props and Tony as the hooker. Here is part 1 of the interview:. Well quite a few did. Listen to the clip below in case you missed it. Thanks for writing, glad you enjoyed the show, we did to!
Hope to see The Stranger/Kon-Tiki - The Bootleg Shadows - The Bootleg Shadows Live at another one soon, Cheers Geoff. Cheers Geoff.

Hi Hazel We really enjoy playing those tunes and we really appreciate you writing to us!
Clive A. I have a Fender Stratocaster and would value your advice on the type of guitar strings that are best suited to emulate your sound. I am sure they are steel but wondered if there is anything else I should know, like the grade.
Many thanks. Hi Clive Glad you enjoyed the show The Stranger/Kon-Tiki - The Bootleg Shadows - The Bootleg Shadows Live thanks for taking the Great Hosannah - Kula Shaker - Peasants, Pigs & Astronauts to write to us. With the Strat I use Elixir Nanoweb anti rust They do last a long time keeping their bright tone for ages. Hope that helps.
I was at the Basingstoke show last night with my family and friends. We thoroughly enjoyed the show, not just seeing shadows music played well live but the good humour from the band despite a couple of technical issues and visible pleasure they showed in performing together onstage.
