Great to have Dave stop over for a couple of days in sunny Norfolk en-route to Harwich and then home to Sweden.

Dave has just picked up his re-furbished Silver B&H Sovereign Studio trumpet which  the 'great late'          Derek Watkins  had sorted for Dave to pick up at the B&H factory back  in the 1980's, it now looks brand new!!

Dave & myself toured withPeter Skellern and shared the trumpet section with the 'trumpet legend' Kenny Baker, who was the featured trumpet soloist (....and my childhood trumpet hero!!)

I also had the great pleasure of sitting (for many years) with Dave, Graham Russell & Andy Gibson plus 'Buzz' on the Andrew Lloyd Webber Hit Show ' Starlight Express ' trumpet section. They are not only fabulous trumpet players but also great guys!

          Happy days!! x
