1960 or 1961 to May 1961
Ritchie Blackmore (gtr); Bob Danks (gtr); Alan Dunklin (bss); Roger Mingay (gtr); Mick Underwood (drm).
(The name of this group could have been something else.) During May 1961, both Blackmore and Mingay went to audition for Lord Sutch. Mingay was deemed more experienced and got the job, so Blackmore joined Mike Dee's band instead (see below). Possibly the Satellites had folded up before the Screaming audition, already in late 1960 perhaps.
