In 1962 The Searchers were merely four kids making a few extra pounds playing small gigs around their home town of Liverpool, providing the backing for a local C & W singer Johnny Sandon.
One year later, the singer having left to further his own solo career, The Searchers found themselves at number one in the British charts with Sweets for My Sweet.
The Beatles had started the 'Mersey boom' and a host of other combos from the north of England followed, to form what was to become the golden decade of British pop music.
Unlike many of these other groups, The Searchers created their own highly individual sound, which later on influenced a host of performers who were just beginning to make their way into music. Artists such as Tom Petty, The Byrds, Marshall Crenshaw and even "The Boss" Bruce Springsteen, whose version of When You Walk In The Room, was a high spot in his stage show.
The soaring vocal harmonies and rich jangley sound of the twelve string guitar were to be adapted by many who knew when they were on to a good thing.
