Tommy Sands

Tommy Sands (born August 27, 1937 ) is an American pop music singer and actor.

Born Thomas Adrian Sands into a musical family in Chicago, Illinois, his father was a pianist and his mother a big-band singer. While still young, he moved with his family to Shreveport, Louisiana. Sands began playing the guitar at age seven and within a year had a job performing twice weekly on a local radio station. He was only fifteen when Colonel Tom Parker heard about him and signed him to RCA Records. His initial recordings garnered little in the way of sales but in early 1957 he was given the opportunity to star in an episode of "Kraft Television Theatre". On the show, his song presentation of a tune called "Teenage Crush" went over big with the young audience and, released as a 45 rpm single by Capitol Records, it went to No.3 on the Billboard Hot 100 music charts.

Sands' sudden fame brought an offer to sing at the Academy Awards show and his teen idol looks landed him a motion-picture contract to star in a 1958 musical drama called Sing, Boy, Sing. In 1960, he married Nancy Sinatra and for a time they were the toast of Hollywood. Sands performed in several films including Babes in Toyland in 1961 and The Longest Day in 1962 but both his singing and film career had faded by the 1970s.

He was divorced from Sinatra in 1965 and has a daughter, model Jessica Sands, born in 1977 from another relationship.

She also appeared on VH1's Divas Live show in 2004 as well as a variety show with Nick Lachey on the ABC network called the Nick and Jessica Variety Hour on April 11, 2004. The success of the show, however, helped sales of In This Skin.

She often appears as a stereotype of a dumb blonde, notably when she asked whether the Chicken of the Sea tuna she was eating was chicken or fish and thought that buffalo wings were made from buffalo. The couple star in the MTV reality show Newlyweds, which began in 2003 and has run for three seasons. Simpson and Lachey were married on October 26, 2002.
