60 Years in Music


I want to record here the names of those people who have helped me at
one time or another in my professional life.

Firstly George Yates, who got me into the LSO.
Gerald Finzi, my guru.
Percy Showanm, Ernie Lockett, Johnnie Pearson, Howard Blake, James
Shearman, Brian Gascoigne, and Pat Doyle.
My two favourite sound engineers, John Richards and Paul Hulme.
Simon Napier-Bell, who edited this book for me.
And above all, my wife, lover, and best-friend, Suzy, who weathered the
storm with me twice.
