John Petters said :

"Ken Sims, a one time member of the Acker Bilk band, who, during the 50s,
was more famous among fans than
Armstrong himself."

The word "fans" in the above extract needs to be qualified - if John Petters
means "fans of Ken Sims" or "fans of the Acker Bilk band" then it makes a
tenuous kind of sense. However if he means "English jazz fans" or "fans of
jazz trumpet worldwide" then the statement is utter balderdash.
