Tony was asked to join the Skyline Drifters by a friend of the band. The person in question is no longer a friend of the band. Tony agreed (before the others had heard him play) when they promised to pay him in alcohol (current wages based on Bloody Mary's with not too much Worcester sauce). He has only performed one gig sober with the band. He makes sure the others get drunk so they can't hear him.
Tony has been around for a few years now doing things he would like to be called musical. His friends have been listening to him for a few years now and also wish they could call it musical. Despite this, Tony manages to convince people such as Fish and Mick Abrahams to work with him. Bribes cannot be ruled out.
