yeah so what???...Tony Sheridan was billed as the leader of the group because it would be Tony who stayed on to record albums for Polydor if the first single sold. "My Bonnie"/"The Saints" (Polydor NH 24-673) was billed as by "Tony Sheridan and the Beat Brothers." As Tony recalls it, Beat Brothers was used instead of Beatles because "Beatles" sounded a lot like the German slang word for penis, which was "peedles." (Remember John saying "Beatle peedles" on a Christmas record?) There were two versions of that first single, one (called the "rock" version) had the intro in German and the other (the "twist" version) had the slow intro in English. These were distinguished from one another both on the label and on the picture sleeve. The "twist" version of the song sold better, and very soon, "My Bonnie" found itself in the German Top Twenty, finally selling up to 180,000 copies in Germany. The single was held back until October, 1961 ("Rock"), and mid-January, 1962 ("Twist").
