"Telstar" will always be one of the greatest instrumentals of all time, IMO

Influence: Eh, no.
Innovation: Okay, Telstar sounded pretty damn weird back then, but aside from that it was just average Instrumental rock.
Commercial: One hit wonders

Yes without a doubt

Also the drummer of so many uK hits Clem Cattini drummer and band leader
