DigThatCat, you've got a few facts wrong.
By the time Joe Meek killed himself in 1967, Alan Caddy had left The Tornados 2 years previously in 1965.
The line up in 1967 had no original members left.
Also, while Brian Gregg "was" in the Tornados line up, Heinz original replacement was Tab Martin for 6 months, who later back Heinz on live shows only, in one of Joe Meek's other groups, The Saints, before he had the band, The Wild Ones who quickly changed their name to The Wild Boys. The Wild Ones/The Wild Boys both featured Ritchie Blackmore.
Chas Hodges (The Outlaws) also replaced Heinz in The Tornados for a few shows before Brian Gregg took over for at least a year.
Alan Caddy wasn't involved with the 1975 remake of Telstar as the others had fallen out with him because he gave one of their tunes "Pandora's Box" to the American group The Ventures.
He put himself down as the writer & publisher only & collected all the royalties, when in fact all members had a hand in writing the tune.
The line up on the 1975 remake is stated as Roger Lavern, George Bellamy, Heinz & Clem Cattini (not Clem Cattina as you say, but I realise this could be a typo).
In fact all the guitar parts on the 1975 remake was played by George Bellamy (Father on Muse guitarist/Singer, Matt Bellamy) because as previously stated, Alan was left out, & as a bass player, Heinz was poor to bad at best.
This is a classic! A hit in 1960 and now in 2012 my 7 year old Grandson loves this track! Another guy who we lost much too early but who is still remembered. Is it true that Johnny used to watch the Poole Pirates Speedway team?
With due respect to original uploaders Cronkey and Nanocyar I've added my less than pristine images into the mix. Surely someone out there has a good quality copy of this classic disc which can be added to the database?
Clem Cattina and Alan Caddy went on to form the nucleus of the group, The Tornados, under the direction of Joe Meek, and enjoyed chart topping success with 'Telstar'. They were later joined by Brian Gregg who was brought in as a replacement for Heinz Burt.
Johnny Kidd - Born Frederick Heath in London 1939 (composer).
He first band was Freddie Heath and the Nutters, Renamed; Captain Kidd and the Pirates. Finally 'Johnny' becoming the name that stuck.
Selp penned by Johnny Kidd with one of the most recognised guitar intros by Joe Morretti (session guitarist) this was one of the few original sounding British 'Rock 'n' Roll' tracks, confirmed by the durability and cover versions of the song.
