I first met Derek when I was working in Trend Studios, I was making production masters for Juliet’s cracking album Burn the Black Suit. I got to know Derek a bit better after Trend and we had several coffees and chats. Listening to Derek’s music knowledge and expertise was amazing. He had such a passion for music and was so helpful to so many bands.
I last met Derek two weeks ago, he was sitting beside us at Elvis Costello’s gig. My condolences to Derek’s wife and children.
