Tony Sheridan
Skinny Minny - The Brits Are Rockin' CD

Tony Sheridan was second only to Bill Haley in catalyzing the German Rock 'n' Roll scene.
Sheridan was a prime force during the legendary Star Club era, and he helped create the Hamburg Sound.
However, he was reduced to a mere footnote in the Beatles saga as time went by, with his own releases and magnificent talent often overlooked.
This addition to the popular series ‘The Brits Are Rocking’ sets the record straight,
Young Tony was stricken with a case of skiffle fever, founded The Saints, and ended up in London.
His massive talent and technique made him an in-demand sideman on tours and recording sessions - he played for Gene Vincent and Eddie Cochran on that fatal tour in 1960.
Tony also had a reputation as a relentless bandleader, and he was asked to form a combo for an extended engagement at the Kaiserkeller in Hamburg.
As a result, the hurriedly grouped Jets were the first British band to play the German city.
The rest is history.
