Prior to the Beat Boom of the 1960s, classic British rock & roll songs could be counted on the fingers of one hand – Johnny Kidd & the Pirates’ Shakin’ All Over; Cliff Richard’s Move It; and… Brand New Cadillac by Vince Taylor. Like so many young Londoners fascinated by skiffle and rock & roll, Vince took to hanging around Soho’s 2i’s coffee bar, waiting to be discovered. Together with his backing group the Playboys, Vince began to make an impact. But it was only posthumously that Vince Taylor achieved the fame which had eluded him in his lifetime. That was thanks to The Clash, and a young man, desperate for pop stardom, who remembered meeting Vince in London in 1966.
