Funny how to Petula Clark became the only one of these three to make it big in America. Cilla Black could have been a big star in the U.S., and Brian Epstein tried like heck to make her a star here in the States, but that would have involved lots of travel, and she's averse to traveling long distances, I understand.
Sandie Shaw is known for performing barefoot once in awhile, and Paul McCartney emulated her on the cover of Abbey Road
. Americans who'd never heard of her then thought this was a death symbol. Silly Americans . . .
