"In the summer, the scene would move en masse to Ostend, Belgium's equivalent to Blackpool. DJ Freddy Cousaert played at the Groove, a late night downstairs bar frequented by US marines, lovers of blues and soul music
and tourists, it was Cousaert who later looked after Marvin Gaye during his 80s sejourn in Ostend. The music he played at the Groove included ska, Latin jazz and even Broadway songs such as Stranger in Paradise, or Whatever Lola Wants from Damn Yankees...."

In 1959 Black joined a group of musicians which became Bill Black's Combo.
The lineup was Black (bass), Joe Lewis Hall (piano), Reggie Young (guitar),
Martin Wills (saxophone), and Jerry Arnold (drums). There were several
personnel changes. While Young was in the army, his position was filled
by Hank Hankins, Chips Moman and Tommy Cogbill. Ace Cannon replaced Wills
on sax. Carl McVoy replaced Hall in the studio, while Bobby Emmons
replaced him on tour.

  1. The most important change was caused by the death of Bill Black himself. Early in 1965, Bill Black was diagnosed with a brain tumour. Devastated, and feeling his time was limited, he signed over responsibilities for the band to guitarist Bob Tucker. Tucker purchased Black’s studio in Memphis and continued to tour with the Bill Black Combo for the next 30 years.
