Lot Essay

Brian Jones first met Alexis Korner when his band, Blues Incorporated, played in Cheltenham. Following the gig, Brian Jones insisted on playing for Korner who was apparently so impressed that he gave Jones his address in London and invited him to come and stay. Soon afterwards, Brian Jones moved to London and began hanging out at the Ealing Jazz Club, frequently sitting in with Alexis Korner's band which included Charlie Watts on drums - it was Korner who introduced Watts to Brian Jones at that time, later giving him his blessing when Jones persuaded Watts to join his fledgling band.
