Tributes to Gus from friends and colleagues

David Paton

Bassist

Gus was a very generous man and a wonderful producer. He would always allow musicians the freedom to express themselves as much as they wanted. He always encouraged to me to play the way I wanted to play and because of that he got the best out of his musicians.

I remember listening back to my fretless bass and asking him how he got it to sound so good, he said, “It’s all coming from you.” That’s the kind of guy he was, always giving the musician the credit.
