I first met David Richards at the Montreux Jazz Festival, Switzerland in 1983.
We became good friends and David ended up joining us in 1986 to mix my first album which included To The Edge Of Time and One Night in Amsterdam.
I was in the Mountain Studio the day David Bowie came to meet him about doing some work together...the rest as we know is history.
In 2009 David called me unexpectedly asking if I had any ideas for songs and 'why not come out to Montreux and see what happens'
We had some amazing writing and recording sessions over the next few years and this song PL&R'n'R, our first song together, held a special place in David's heart, as did our 'dove' logo designed by John Reddy.
David Richards' mixes are legendary and this mix is no exception.
My dear friend sadly passed away the 20th of December 2013.
Right now the files of our unfinished songs are in Tempo Studio, Dublin and with the support of Matt Kelleghan and our musician friends, we plan to finish what David and I started in Mountain Studio.
I miss him very much, I wish David the gift of Peace, the gift of Love and the gift of Rock'n'Roll on his new journey.
