Tony Ashton was an English rock pianist, keyboardist, singer, composer, producer and artist. Born Edward Anthony Ashton in Blackburn, Lancashire, he spent his formative years in the seaside town of Blackpool where his parents had an upright piano. When he was a child, his mother sent him to piano lessons. In 1959, at the age of 13, whilst Ashton was a student at St. Georges School, Blackpool, he joined a local group The College Boys Bob Broome Vocals, Pete Fielding Lead Guitar, Tony Ashton Piano/Rhythm Guitar, Harry Kershaw Bass Guitar and Ronnie Turner Drums, this was where he started his musical career. When Ashton left school at the age of 15 he was already an accomplished pianist. He played in a jazz trio, The Tony Ashton Trio with drummer John Laidlaw and bass player Pete Shelton in 1961Р 62 at the Picador Club, Blackpool. Although his work began during the Beatles era, his roots lay firmly in soul, jazz and the blues. After playing with various Blackpool bands, Ashton was invited to join the Liverpool group The Remo Four as organist/vocalist. The group spent some time being the resident band at Hamburgs legendary Star club, followed by a US tour accompanying the Beatles. They recorded some singles but their best work came in 1966 when they released their album Smile. Before their break-up in 1968, they backed George Harrison on his album Wonderwall.
