Vicci Wardman (viola), Tim Gill (‘cello )and Helen Tunstall (harp).

Zak Eastop ( a son of mine)

Zak with his new facial implants.

My son, Zak …although in reality he doesn’t look much like this. I’ve stretched his face about in various directions to make him look like a psychopathic testosterone-fuelled clown.
You might think he would object to this, being a rather good-looking lad in real life, but no – he’s used this photo for his Facebook profile!

John Wilson Orchestra Showcase at EMI Studios, Abbey Road

Nick Hougham, Tim Ball and Chris Parkes (Principal) are the hornplayers seen here at Abbey Road.

This was fun – a promotional play through of some fantastic bits of MGM film scores.
This band sounds incredible. If you haven’t heard it yet, then you’re in for a massive treat.

I took the photo during the rehearsal. For the performance we all wore smart black and looked nearly as good as we sounded.

Ben Foster


Ben is the conductor of Peter Gabriel’s “New Blood Orchestra” – and a very nice chap he is, too.

My brother, Nick


My brother, Nick, is a bass trombonist.
He’s probably the finest in the world…
