Andy Shernoff (born 19 April 1955, Queens, New York) is a Jewish American musician, oenophile, and founding member of The Dictators, one of the original New York punk bands, in which he played bass, sang backing vocals and occasional leads, and wrote most of the songs. He has also been involved with a side project with Keith Streng of The Fleshtones called The Master Plan. He also appeared on Joey Ramone's solo album, Don't Worry About Me.
As both a journalist and a musician, Andy Shernoff is often credited as "Adny Shernoff," a deliberate typo transposing the second and third letters of his name. Shernoff has never explained the reasoning behind this stylistic quirk.
