The Others were part of the last wave of mid-1960's British beat bands, formed at Hampton Grammar School in Middlesex with Paul Stewart on vocals, Bob Freeman and John Stanley on guitars, Ian McLintock on bass, and Nigel Baldwin on drums. They were well suited to covering American rock 'n roll, with a lean, tough sound that allowed them to turn in a fierce version of Bo Diddley's "Oh Yeah," issued by Fontana Records in the fall of 1964. They 1965, the group had disappeared from the annals of recorded music, although they lasted long enough for a teenaged Brian May to pass through the group's line-up long before he hooked up with Roger Taylor on their way to forming Queen. Stewart, Freeman, Stanley and company were last heard of in the late 1960's working under the name Sands, aigned to Reaction Records and producing some very pleasing psychedelic music. ~ Bruce Eder, RoviPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
