Jet Harris, the original bass player with The Shadows, has died of cancer aged 71.
The guitarist, who played on number one hits including Apache, died at his partner's home in Winchester, his agent Peter Stockton said.
Sir Cliff Richard paid tribute to his former bandmate, saying: "Jet was exactly what The Shadows and I needed - a backbone holding our sound together."
Earlier this month, Harris cancelled all his appearances due to ill health.
