Description

Tommy Roe, born Thomas David Roe, 9 May 1942, Atlanta, Georgia, United States. Roe was raised in Atlanta where he attended Brown High School. Influenced by the sounds of the late Buddy Holly, Roe developed a unique style that, combined with his all-American clean-cut image, made him a popular musical performer throughout the 1960s. 

"Sheila" is a song written and recorded by Tommy Roe with the help of Robert Bosch. The single reached number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 on September 1, 1962, remaining in the top position for two weeks and peaking at number six on the R&B charts.

The original version of the song was recorded by Roe for Judd Records in 1960 with his then backing group The Satins, but it failed to sell.

The song is similar to Buddy Holly's "Peggy Sue".

A build up of global sales of "Sheila" meant that the R.I.A.A. did not present the gold record until 1969.
