As Maxwell Smart used to say “missed it by that much”.
Someone trashed those songs. Poor Sheridan.
On the ATCO 45 I have, John sings lead on Ain’t She Sweet. Tony sings lead on teh other side.
“singer on the first ever singer”
Silly guy. Everybody knows that the Beatles were Paul McCartney's old backup band.
I always thought it strange that the Beatles recorded a song [My Bonny] that had already been used as a gag on I Love Lucy. IIRC, every time Lucy sang the words “ocean” or “sea” she got squirted with a seltzer bottle.
Sheesh, Motown was at its height at the same time produced and much better love songs and arrangements. Even the earlier Shirelles did soppy love songs better than, "Ps. I Love You". Think, "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?".
Although, I'll give the Beatles credit for their later arrangements/lyrics on Sargent Pepper's, it still had no soul. "Day in the Life"? What a lot of pretentious crap.
Ask yourself why every jukebox in every bar/club has so many Stones songs and few (if any) have Beatles.
Think, "Honky Tonk Woman" - one of the most classic rock songs of all time. Plus, "Gimme Shelter" was beyond anything Lennon,McCarthy could imagine. The intro lead is probably one of the best in rock history, not to mention the dueling guitar solos in the bridge.
Yes, the Stone's lyrics were darker and not to some tastes, but that and their natural feel for rock and rhythm&blues is what rock n roll is about. THEY were the natural progression from Chuck Berry, Little Richard, et al. The Beatles not so much.
"Please Allow Me To Introduce Myself...".

What the story doesn’t mention , I guess it assumes you know, is that Tony remained in Germany, and kept playing there. What (he played), I don’t know, but he probably met and knew the legendary Heino, as well as the legendary Freddy, a privilege to envy, for sure!
Called himself the 5th Beatle. Considering how many “5th Beatles” there were at the time...Pete Best, George Martin, Brian Epstein, Billy Preston, Eric Clapton... I was unimpressed with his story and just assumed he was using his tangential Beatles connection to carve out a lounge lizard career.
Sheridan and The Beatles “My Bonnie”...
