Douglas Cox was born in Kansas City, MO, and was raised in Texas. At the age of five he discovered the magic of rock n‘ roll through his parents’ 45-rpm records, including Elvis, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, and Buddy Holly. But a certain 45 stood out over the others: The Beatles “Ticket To Ride.” Doug has performed for 23 years in Dallas’ top Beatles tribute band, A Hard Night’s Day. His travels performing The Fab Four’s music have taken him across the globe from the U.S. to South Africa. Doug’s favorite memories are playing in Liverpool, recording in Abbey Road Studios, and backing Tony Sheridan in Hamburg at The Kaiserkeller. Fellow musicians back home say Doug has always played with that signature Ringo style.
