    Tony Sheridan, who has died aged 72, was the hard-driving rock and roll guitarist and singer teamed with the
    Beatles on their first recording session, when they backed him on the hoary old standard My Bonnie in 1961.

    RIP Tony.

    In a fashion, he was the fifth or sixth Beatle. I remember hearing My Bonnie on the radio when stations were looking for anything Beatles.

    I'd forgotten this part (from the Guardian link):
    Also, one of the police cadets who was first at the scene of the accident was Dave Dee, who went on to have a very nice career in rock and roll.
