This week I talk to British session drumming legend ‘Clem Cattini’. Who, during the course of his career played on over forty four #1 singles and was part of a group called ‘The Tornados’ who were the first British group to ever achieve a #1 in the US with their single ‘Telstar’. He was also on a shortlist of drummers considered by Jimmy Page to potentially be a member of Led Zeppelin before the group officially launched. Say what !!!
