British keyboard player and singer Tony Ashton was born in Blackburn, Lancashire, and first gained notice when he replaced Don Andrews in The Remo Four, a Liverpool Mersey Beat group. They played on George Harrison's Wonderwall soundtrack, then Ashton and drummer Roy Dyke quit to form Ashton, Gardner & Dyke in 1968, and the trio scored a hit with "Resurrection Shuffle" in 1971, then split up in 1972. Ashton joined Family for a year, and in 1976 was a member of Paice, Ashton And Lord, after which he went into production. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi
