Tommy Quickly

Tommy Quickly was born Thomas Quigley on 7 July 1945 in the Norris Green area of Liverpool (he shares his birthday with Ringo Starr, who is five years older).


He made his earliest public appearance at the city’s Civil Service Club in May 1962, and a year later he gave up his job as an apprentice fitter with the Automatic Telephone Company to become the first solo artists on Brian Epstein‘s golden roster of stars.

For Tommy’s disc debut on the Piccadilly label, John Lennon and Paul McCartney provided an infectious beat ballad entitled Tip Of My Tongue.

He launched his second single, Kiss Me Now, via ABC Television’s top-rated Thank Your Lucky Stars programme at the end of October.tommyquickly12
