After that, they parted company in early May 1960: Johnny Vance stayed with Vince Taylor, Brian Marshall returned to Portsmouth and formed the Nightriders, and Johnny Watson replaced Bert Croms as drummer of the Echoes backing American stars Conway Twitty and Johnny Preston then went to Italy with Wee Willy Harris.

Brian Marshall was brought in The Terry Dene’s Dene Aces as a last-minute replacement for Don Adams alongside Bobby Woodman who would eventually take over Johnny Watson as Playboys’ drummer. Woodman rolled his mates but also original Playboys’ bass player Tex Makins who was just returned from a Scotland Tour with Vince Eager & His Quiet Three and finally filled in Johnny Vance’s shoes for a short while prior to going on the road once again with Vince Eager.
