Rock Hall to Host Funeral for Musician and Manager Danny Sheridan

Music News

Songwriter, bassist, record producer, actor and manager Danny Sheridan worked behind the scenes to help turn country singer David Allan Coe into an outlaw country superstar. He can also lay claim to a long list of accomplishments in the rock world too.

Sheridan, who kicked around Cleveland a few decades ago with the country-ish Eli Radish Band, passed away on May 24.

On Monday, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame will host a funeral for Sheridan. The event will begin at 7 p.m. with a eulogy by Sheridan's spouse, Reverend Angelle Sheridan. Those who attend are encouraged to “speak their hearts and minds” when Sheridan passes “the talking stick."

At 8 p.m., the service will conclude with the launch of a miniature Viking ship at Voinovich Bicentennial Park. The ship will contain a handful of Sheridan's ashes and notes from family, friends and fans. A reception follows at 9 p.m. at Cebars Euclid Tavern, which will host the Danny Sheridan Memorial Open Mic Night.
