Spy and music fans lost a great guitarist and arranger during the winter. Billy Strange, famous for his work with Nancy and Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., the Beach Boys, the Everly Brothers and many more, passed away at the age of 80. Spy Vibers may remember him for his numerous soundtrack cover albums and for working on Nancy Sinatra's non-soundtrack version of You Only Live Twice. Here is one of Billy's many spy album jackets, followed by his cool version of the James Bond Theme to start your weekend!
