English rocker Tony Sheridan
, who took the Beatles under his wing in their early Hamburg days, using them as one of his backing bands, acting as their fashion guru (outfitting them in sleek, bad boy black leather) and introducing them to the music of Little Richard, has died at age 72
Here he is with the Fab Four themselves: My Bonnie
(that's Pete Best on drums...)
Here's Tony in a spirited rendition of Ya Ya
, which, contrary to the YouTube poster's credits, actually is not with the Beatles.
His laid back Take Out Some Insurance On Me Baby
perhaps features the Beatles, or, perhaps not... at any rate, his rockabilly crooning is convincing. And he sings "god damn" in it! Scandalous!
RIP Tony Sheridan.
