TELSTAR

RELIVE THE TELSTAR ERA

Byron ELWELL

1947-2015

It was a great sadness to us all when Byron passed away very suddenly and unexpectedly on 11th may 2015.

He had led a very happy and successful life being a happily married family man and successful business man.

Byron spent a great time of his life playing music on keyboards, listening to music and in his later years composing and recording music.

He started his first band in the 60's with a group of friends, him playing the clavioline and belting out Telstar. It was one of his favourite tunes for ever more. Although he later went on to play keyboards in various bands his love of the clavioline never left him. He was well known for his love and knowledge of the old instrument.

He started collecting claviolines, getting them fully overhauled and serviced, then selling them on for someone else to enjoy. He thoroughly enjoyed bringing a 50year old instrument back to life to play and enjoy. He finished up with quite a collection that have now all been serviced and ready for sale.

I hope I can carry on with the good service and sales that Byron started.
