The UK at this time was dominated by American acts.

Classic UK Rock Record :-
Shakin' All Over - Johnny Kidd & The Pirates
Being a member of Marty Wilde's Band was not a full time job and so with the help of
Jack Good, producer of the TV Program "Oh Boy", BJS started session work.
This was an excellent move because BJS was uncomfortable with Show Business.
(he was far more comfortable being a Musician)
(but apart from his time with Joe Meek he had little scope to be inventive)
(for sometime he was a Journeyman learning his craft)

BJS was in Eddie Cochran's Band on the fateful tour that ended Eddie's life in April.

He would have bumped into 2is Coffee Club friends
Clem Cattini, Chas Hodges and Ritchie Blackmore at Joe Meek's Holloway Road Studio.

For more details please view BJS's Wikipedia page.
