Paul MCCartney still refers to Tony Sheridan as a teacher
Tony Sheridan and Paul Mc Cartney in Dortmund 1989
To this day Paul McCartnes refers to Sheridan as a 'teacher', and both John Lennon and George Harrison learned quite a few tricks and techniques on the guitar from him. In 1961 Polydor Records producer Bert Kämpfert invited Ton Sheridan to record a few songs with his friends The Beatles. The session produced songs like 'My Bonnie', 'The Saints', 'Cry for a shadow' and a Sheridan penned tune called 'Why'. Eventually Tony would receive a gold record for 1 million copies sold, and those recordings are considered the foundation stone of the Beatles early career. The Beatles and Tony Sheridan reunited in April 1962 at the opening of the now legendary 'Starclub' where they both played.
Tony recorded several records for Polydor in Hamburg. A song called 'Skinny Minnie', which he recorded with the Scottish group Big Six in 1964, became his biggest success. After having a huge hit in Australia with the song 'Why' he toured the country that same year. It was in Sydney where he visited the family of Scottish sax player Alex Young, and ended up showing Alex's 2 younger brothers how to play guitar like him. Years later those 2 young lads would start a band of their own and call it AC/DC. http://www.tony-sheridan.de
