Tommy Steele - Bermondsey Boy

Tommy Steele is thought of as the first 'Teen Idol' in British music and he bridged the transition from the demise of variety to the birth of rock and roll.
He was born in Bermondsey in 1936 and learned his trade as a performer while working as a merchant seaman, with a colleague on the ship teaching him how to play guitar.
