Beatles Examiner reports the very sad news that Tony Sheridan is seriously ill in hospital.
For those who dont know Tony was a good friend of the Beatles and played with them in Germany in the early 60's before they made it. The Beatles, with Pete Best on drums, recorded 6 tracks with Tony (and 2 on their own) between 1961 and 1962 and one of them, My Bonnie with Tony singing lead vocal, was the song that brought Brian Epstein into the story after customers of his shop requested it. The songs are actually very good as far as early rock and roll goes and well worth listening to if you havent heard them.
Here's hoping he makes a speedy recovery.
My thoughts are with him.
