Marian Stockley, better known as Friday Brown, was from Manchester.

In 1962/63 she joined boyfriend's group The Mike Taylor Combo and she won a best vocalist award and a contract with Decca.

Her debut single was in 1966, a ballad titled "Getting Nowhere" with "And (To Me He Meant Everything)" as the B side.

As Marian (Friday Brown) recalled:

"On the B side of 'Getting Nowhere' there are two guitarists backing up my was me...the other was a young session guy whom I'd had the pleasure of working with on the Marianne And Mike sessions and loads of folk/blues stuff we did for the Beeb in London...

His name was and still is Jimmy Page."
