Danny Sheridan is an American musician, songwriter, producer, actor, and entertainment manager. He is credited as an influential electric bass player, and as the founder of the Eli Radish Band, pioneers of the so-called outlaw country music genre. Still in his teens, Sheridan's Eli Radish toured with such notable acts as The Who and The Doors. The lyrics of David Allan Coe's "Longhaired Redneck" forever memorialized the concerts he performed with Sheridan while fronting the Eli Radish Band. In 2014 Sheridan began managing Coe and is producing his new CD.
Sheridan helped launch his then-girlfriend Playboy model Nina Blackwood’s TV career as MTV’s first video jockey (VJ), and in October 1983 US Magazine praised his “astute management” for "orchestrating her meteoric rise".
In 1988, Sheridan married blues vocalist Bonnie Bramlett of Delaney, Bonnie & Friends of On Tour with Eric Clapton fame, soon managing her 1990s career comeback where he wrote and produced the “Revolutionary Hard Rockin’ Blues” of their group, Bandaloo Doctors. People Magazine and Robin Leach’s Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous praised Sheridan for "reinventing Bramlett’s career". Sheridan later went on to act with Pauly Shore.
In 2009, Sheridan began collaborating with his fiance, Angelle Sheridan. The two continue to collect a catalog of songs that the couple will publish and record together.
Sheridan’s songs have been performed by many artists, including Bramlett, Coe, Amy Madigan, Nia Peeples, and David Crosby. Sheridan has also composed for TV and film, most notably CHiPs, Fame, and the feature film Gang Related.
