Terry Sylvester

Terry Sylvester 2

Forty five years ago Terry Sylvester left as lead singer of The Swinging Blue Jeans with their hit “Hippie Hippie Shake” to join The Hollies.

He played a key role on vocals and rhythm guitar on The Hollies’ hits, “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother”, “The Air That I Breathe” and “Long Cool Woman (In A Black Dress)” among others.

Terry’s musical career blossomed and in 2010, he become one of only five people from Liverpool, England inducted into the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame.  And in case you’re wondering, he grew up, and kept in contact, with the other four … John, Paul, George and Ringo.  In fact, the Fab Four asked Terry and his first band, The Escorts, to open for them as The Beatles played their last show at the famed Cavern Club.

Terry’s storied musical career has also touched many other greats.  Cat Stevens was his next door neighbor in London; and Terry also sang backup on some of Cat’s albums.  He’s played soccer with Rod Stewart.  Terry also worked with a young session player as The Hollies recorded “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother.”  That piano player, Elton John, went on to have a pretty good career himself.

Terry is still playing his music across the world.  In recent years he completed tours of Great Britain and Australia, but he primarily plays at events across the United States.
