Him & The Others

Also known as Him And The Others

Short biography of Him & The Others: [b]Him & The Others[/b], were formed in 1964, when drummer [a=Keith Giles] and bassist [a=Lennie Shaw], left their former group and decided to start a new group with local vocalist [a=George Demetrious].

After placing adverts in Melody Maker, guitarists [a=Colin Roche] and [a=Geoff Gibbs] completed the line-up.

The group soon built up a following playing top clubs around London and the home counties, and supported many of the major top acts, as well as backing group to chart singer [b]Peter Fenton[/b].
They also appeared in the British made film, [b]Mini Weekend[/b], filmed during one of their many gigs at top London club, Tiles.

They made one record on the [l=Parlophone] label, which received rave reviews, but never achieved chart success.

In 1967, following [a=Lennie Shaw]'s departure from the group, they changed their name to [b]The Hand[/b].
With [a=Geoff Gibbs] switching to bass, they become more progressive/blues orientated.

The band split up completely around a year later. George and Geoff went on to form [a=George Paul Jefferson], [a=Keith Giles] joined progressive band,[a=Fortes Mentum], whilst [a=Colin Roche] went back to his love of the blues forming a band with [a=Paul Rodgers], who later went on to form [a=Free].
