Max Merritt was born in Christchurch on 30th April 1941 and by his early teenage years was engrossed in music, beginning guitar lessons at the age of twelve. By the mid-fifties, rock and roll had exploded around the world and Max was quite taken by the styles and sounds of Elvis Presley and Bill Haley. In April 1965, the second Meteor's album was finally released. Called "Max Merritt's Meteors", it contained a wide range of styles, in keeping with the versatility of the band. From it came the single "So Long Babe"/"You're Treatin' Me Bad". This single was also released in Australia. They did release one final single in 1972 called "Let It Slide"/"Dedicated To A Friend". In January 1971, deciding that they had now probably done their dash in Australia, Max decided to make the trip to England that he had always wanted to do, but had been delayed by the accident.
