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.

He was divorced from Sinatra in 1965 and has a daughter, model Jessica Sands, born in 1977 from another relationship. Staind are currently recording a new album which will not include Fred Durst, tentatively titled Chapter V and planned for release on May 31, 2005. 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. Their appearance at Reading Festival during the tour had another impromptu acoustic set, this time due to equipment failure. In 1960, he married Nancy Sinatra and for a time they were the toast of Hollywood. Staind embarked on a world-wide tour in 2003 to promote 14 Shades Of Grey. 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. Despite the criticism of the video, it has done much to increase their popularity.

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. During one particular song, "Outside", Durst can be heard shouting out (above Aaron Lewis' bridge riff) "Biloxi! This is the real motherfucking deal, y'all! Feeling those lighters." The video shot at the event proved popular, and has received more airplay on some television stations than any of Staind's official videos. 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". Aaron Lewis and Fred Durst performed together live, on one occasion doing a live acoustic set to the accompaniment of hundreds of waving cigarette lighters. He was only fifteen when Colonel Tom Parker heard about him and signed him to RCA Records. Staind toured with Limp Bizkit for the Family Values Tour during the summer of 2000, which set them up for their smash hit 2001 album Break The Cycle. Sands began playing the guitar at age seven and within a year had a job performing twice weekly on a local radio station. Despite the row, Fred Durst was so impressed by Staind's live performance that night that he later set up their first record deal.

While still young, he moved with his family to Shreveport, Louisiana. Staind made their first breakthrough after first having a row with Fred Durst before playing in support of Limp Bizkit in October 1997. Born Thomas Adrian Sands into a musical family in Chicago, Illinois, his father was a pianist and his mother a big-band singer. Their sophomore album, Dysfunction (release on Elektra Records), was their breakthrough. Tommy Sands (born August 27, 1937 ) is an American pop music singer and actor. They self-released their debut album, Tormented, in November 1996. Staind is a four-piece rock/heavy metal group from Springfield, Massachusetts.
