Everyone seems to think there's a second guitar player on that recording, and no one is making any argument of it being anyone other than Paul Cairns that I can see.
I put the time line on that site as a bit of a test but that webpage wasn't really suitable for it so I never really continued it. I also haven't had a lot of spare time recently so haven't looked into doing a fuller time line. My time line goes back to Gypsy's Kiss and but I need to go through everything again and double check my notes, so I tend to put info up on forums in relation to questions.Baztac:
May I ask some questions about:
Are you planning to go pre-1978 as well?
Would you give sources for the events that happened on this timeline? At least for the events which deviate from official channels. I think that would enrich the site a lot.
Anyhow, I find this a very interesting project.
Probably because by the time the band released the 7" he was history and they (Rod and Steve) felt it made more sense only to include the band members at the time of the release.For what it's worth, Paul Di'anno confirms that Paul Cairns played on the Soundhouse Tapes:

Some of his statements in the past have had to be taken with a grain of salt, and maybe not too much weight should be put on this. I would have liked to see a follow-up question by the interviewer about why Cairns would not have been credited, but whatever.
