The Others are an English R&B band formed in 1963 by students from Hampton School, S.W. London. They released their first record, a version of Bo Diddley's "Oh Yeah" (Fontana TF501) on October 2, 1964 and were the inspiration for fellow-student Brian May to turn professional with his band Queen. American punk band Shadows of Knight had a hit record in the U.S. with a facsimile arrangement of The Others' version of "Oh Yeah". The original members were Paul Stewart (vocals/mouth-harp), John Standley (guitar), Bob Freeman (guitar/mouth-harp), Ian McLintock (bass) and Nigel Baldwin (drums). Standley and Baldwin were replaced by Peter Hammerton and Geoff Coxon when the 1964 record release precipitated the band turning fully professional. The B-side of their first single was entitled "I'm Taking Her Home" and was written by band members Stewart and McLintock.
Since 2012, four of the original band members continue to perform and record as The Others, with Bob Freeman (now known as Rob Tolchard) having taken over bass duties from McLintock. The remaining members are now based in South East England.
