it is a shame that rick hardy is gone...i miss him and i didn't even know him...bill tell me about rick and tony sheridans relationship...did he lord over rick like he did others?
joe sunseri wrote an unpublish sheridan bio...it is an iteresting read...i would like to he your spin on it.....
i cannot believe i never gave rick his own topic...he was after all a jet as much as crowley......
i borrowed this...by Ken Hunt, London] In June 1960 a beat group called The Jets hit the St. Pauli district of Hansastadt Hamburg. With their arrival the British music invasion began. Rick Hardy was one of the original five-piece Jets, the first British group to perform in the clubs on the Reeperbahn, a district famed for ultra-violence, cameraderie and the richness of its lexicon of sexual services. Many other groups followed them to St. Pauli, notably a group that grew wings and became The Beatles. Hardy was more than a footnote in the history of rock music. He linked skiffle and rock, linked Soho and Hamburg and linked Joe Brown, Cliff Richard, The Shadows and The Beatles.

The guitarist, singer and music historian Richard William Hardy was born in Islington, a district of North London on 17 October 1933. He grew up in North London
