Johnny Sandon (originally named William "Billy" Francis Beck) (born 27 May 1941, ın Liverpool, Lancashire, England; died 23 December 1996, in Rock Ferry, Merseyside, England) was an early rock and roll singer who was part of the Merseybeat phenomenon in the early 1960s.

Music career[edit]

He was a contemporary of the Beatles, and sang with several of their rival groups, including The Searchers from 1960 to 1961, and The Remo Four from 1962 to 1963.

After two years with the Remo Four (during which he signed a management contract with The Beatles' manager Brian Epstein and released two singles on the Pye Records label in the U.K.), Sandon left for a solo career, while Tommy Quickly became The Remo Four's new vocalist.
