Band Name Origins:

  • One of the world's greatest guitar instrumental bands of the late 1950's and early 1960's had to change their name from The Drifters for obvious reasons. The new name was suggested by their original bassist, Jet Harris, because they stood in the shadow of the singer they were originally formed to back - Cliff Richard. This information was given to me by Jet Harris and backed up by other ex-band members. Submitted by: Graham C. Marshall
  • Chosen by original bassist, Jet Harris, because they were always in the shadow of the singer they backed, Cliff Richard. Submitted by: Graham
