March 23, 1962: Alexis Korner’s Blues Incorporated do their debut show at the Ealing Club, London. Brian attends and meets Charlie (who was drumming in the band) for the first time.
Charlie: “It was more of a shock joining Alexis Korner than the Rolling Stones later on. I’d never played with a harmonica player before – I couldn’t believe Cyril Davies when he started playing! We only played out of London once, in Birmingham. Cyril got £1 because he was a professional musician; so did Dick Heckstall-Smith and Jack Bruce. I wasn’t so I got half a crown. Fantastic, isn’t it? Half a crown!”
Charlie, on meeting Brian (2001): “Alexis, all his life, was a hub for young people – and particularly blues and obscure jazz players. He was a great one for bringing them on and listening to them. And one of those people was Brian Jones, in the early days. So I played with Brian and knew him socially through Alexis.”
