Beatles Collaborator Tony Sheridan Dies

(Classic Rock) Tony Sheridan, early Beatles collaborator and said to be the first person to play electric guitar on TV, has died aged 72.

The fledgling Fab Four played their first recording sessions as Sheridan's backing band and their appearance on his 1961 single My Bonnie billed as the Beat Brothers led to Brian Epstein's offer to manage them.

Original Beatles drummer Pete Best has paid tribute, saying: "My friend Tony passed away this morning. Great guy and great memories. I will miss you." More rock news.
