Beatles Collaborator Tony Sheridan Dies
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.
