This week, we pay tribute to the men and women who made other men and women more famous while standing at the back. Some of them went on to fame and fortune of their own. from the legendary Shadows, heard here accompanying Sir Cliff on "In the country," to the less well know Rockets, who would later become Neil Young's Crazy Horse and the even more obscure and woefully named Ronno, aka The Spiders From Mars.
