The B-Side: Tearaways

John Ferriter was born on this day in 1960, and although he would find more success on the backside of the entertainment industry as a manager and agent, he started off a rock and roller from San Diego. First in the Stingrays and then later as part of the influential power pop band the Tearaways, whose combination of British invasion rock with California pop laid the blueprint for the Paisley Underground movement in Los Angeles in the 80’s. Ferriter passed away in 2019, but today we raise a glass and say thanks for the tunes.
