Whilst Colonel Tom Parker's involvement in the successful career of Elvis Presley is extremely well documented, his role in discovering and nurturing (at least initially) Tommy Sands is often overlooked. Tommy was a fifteen year old singer and guitarist when Colonel Tom Parker discovered him, hearing him perform on a local radio station. He got him a contract with RCA Records and whilst his initial recordings did little, his subsequent positioning as something of a teen idol (no doubt modelled on Elvis) proved a masterstroke. Whilst his hit career was surprisingly brief, Steady Date was a Top 5 hit album. He later turned to acting and was briefly married to Nancy Sinatra.
