Tributes to Gus from friends and colleagues

Drummer

The older I get, the more Gus’ and Sheila’s friendship means to me. I’m very proud to have called him a friend for over 25 years. He was the first producer outside of the “folk-rock” scene to call me for recording sessions in the early 70’s, and his attention to detail and insistence on getting things right resonated with me. I would always be prepared to give that extra bit more for him — the results were always worth it.

I miss him very, very much.
