Started with his Skiffle band The SAINTS back in 1957. In the following years (58-59) he was a member of
the english Rock n Roll band VINCE TAYLOR & The PLAYBOYS, before he founded his own band :
The TONY SHERIDAN TRIO, backing EDDIE COCHRAN or GENE VINCENT on tours.
With new the JETS (I think incl. LEO LYONS from TYA) he came to Hamburg-Germany in 1960.
He is still located with some breaks in Northern Germany .In the early Hamburg years he was backed
by some occasions by The BEAT BROTHERS (= Beatles), who played on some of his early recordings
around 1961 - produced by the great BERT KAEMPFERT.
Other backing groups are the BIG SIX (incl. Alex Young - sax brother of Angus).
From 1967 till 1969 he was in Vietnam to play for the soldiers.
Many years he toured alone with his acoustic guitar offering Blues and Folk inspired songs...and not
to forget Rock N Roll.
