The Tornados Now as the later band were referred too came about in 1980's Initially there was a fake Tornado band operating in the Midlands which supposedly had permission from Heinz to use the name-In fact Heinz played at some of the early gigs -.Finally this Band Invited Clem to play with them and Clem insisted on Bringing in Dave Harvey Bass and The Late Lyn Alice Vocals. So It Began.
The Line Up was Davy Graham Lead Guitar and Vocals ( Davy Has been in show Business for many Years achieving a No.1 in Holland with his Band The Caledonians- Davy Is one heck of a Vocalist-Bip Wetherell was On Keyboards not a great Keyboard player but Bip did achieve the Tornado sound on Keyboard and was very effective-Dave Harvey on Bass superlatives fail me with Dave A Great Musician and Bass Player and Good friend- Obviously Clem On Drums and The Gorgeous Lyn Alice On Vocals. The Lovely Lyn who sadly died of Stomach Cancer a beautiful Person I spent many hours with Lyn talking at different gigs we went to .Oddly enough the closest time we spent together was just after Lyn's Mother Died .never thinking Lyn would be gone so soon..
Tornados Now ... gigged up and Down the Country for Many Years also doing many package tours the Biggest being the Telstar Tour with Cliff Bennett & The Rebel Rousers. he Honeycombs - Mike Berry Twinkle The Love Affair Jess Conrad..
The Tornados Made Two Cassettes and One Compact Disc which you will find under Merchandise I also hope to have an in depth page on Lyn Alice - Career and Davy Graham and also Bip so that will appear soon....
The Line-Up Has Changed over the Years obviously with Lyns Death A new Singer was needed and Polly Raymond came in a fine Vocalist and also very nice person- Dave Harvey then Departed for reasons known to no one and in Came Colin Farley ex Bass Player with The Cutting Crew who had a Huge NO.1 with "Died In Your Arms Tonight" Finally Bip Left and since there have been many Keyboard players The Best Is Chris Parren who played On George Michaels Careless Whispers- also A Great Guy -then there was Kevin Earl an fine Classically Trained Keyboard Player but never really cracked the Tornados sound when he joined he had never even heard a Tornados track- Brian Miller then joined great guy once with the Jazz Fusion Band "Isotope" he was great - Do not confuse him with Colin Green The Guitarist--
