The Saints formed in 1963 by Joe Meek as backing band for Heinz. Their version of “Wipe out” was reckoned by many to be better than the Surfaris!
Rick(y) Winter original drummer of the Saints -and a guitar lover (collector?) too!
Bobby Rio –still charming the girls (including my daughters!) and sounded great too!
Clem Cattini –original drummer of Johnny Kidd’s Pirates and then the Tornados and, of course, their recording,” Telstar”. Later session drummer on over 50 UK no. 1 records!
Charlie Gracie –An inspiration to many wannabe guitarists (including a very young Paul Day!) when he first toured the UK in 1957 and still inspirational aged 74!!
Mike Berry was in good voice-as ever!
