A gentleman and music TV director / vision mixer supreme.
Will be sadly missed by us all.
We worked together for over five years in 2005 – 2010 when Andy was the director of the first 6 seasons of Album Chart Show and London Live at the Camden venue KOKO.
He loved the artists – whether Lilly Allen or Lady Gaga in the snow, Morrissey and Paul Weller, Stereophonics and Keane or the lovely Sugababes and Girls Aloud he loved them all and they loved him.
He was one of those rare men who was creative, humorous, experienced … down to earth – close to everyone – no airs or graces – his only fault I seem to remember was a time I was politely told he is too old and perhaps not right for the youth! The TV ageist police– they know who they are - it made me laugh when you knew him – younger, breezier, more creative than most of the young pups still to this day –--- we had one final outing with Mark Knopfler at the Hurlingham Club – a mad night enjoyed by all – then he found his spiritual home following Iron Maiden around the world and up in the air …. So he went out on a high (literally 30,000 feet high)
He directed the best Lady Gaga concert ever when she was just a girl with 5 great songs ….. we will miss him and his kind …. 3DD
