Oral History Information
Tony Ferguson has had an amazing career in music! He began playing guitar at a young age growing up in England, touring with bands such as Unit 4 + 2 and Christie before switching to the record industry as a producer, manager and as Artist & Repertoire (A&R) for over 20 years. While working for Stiff Records he toured the United States, Europe and Spain working with Elvis Costello and several early Punk bands. A few years later he became A&R for the newly formed Interscope Records. Tony signed the band No Doubt in 1991 and worked with them on their first two albums, the first of which took two years to develop and release. Among the incredible stories Tony shared during his NAMM Oral History interview was the harrowing experience of performing behind the Iron Curtain in the late 1960s with the band Unit 4 + 2.
