    Got the World Of Brass catalogue delivered yesterday and was stunned by the picture of Dr Childs in there , looking even thinner and fitter than he did back at the Albert Hall in October.

    He (and his brother and nephew ) have been idols of mine for a long time in terms of their playing and conducting skills , and now I think he should do an article in BB or similar about how he's achieved such remarkable weight loss - being on the slightly overweight side myself I'd appreciate the guidance !!

    Please note , I'm not taking the p*** or being facetious , I just want to know how he's done it and how long it took.

    I understand he started a fitness regime at Christmas 2003.
    He plays squash regularly with Glyn Williams.
    Oh, and in recent weeks he's shaved his moustache off!

    I didn't recognise him at first without the 'tache! Very suave!

    At the 2005 RNCM Brass Festival he got up on stage and after the opener with Dyke, turns to the audience and says something like "Since a lot of you have been talking about it, you'll notice I look much different than I did at last years brass festival...I shaved my moustache."

    Fantastic one-liner

    Yeah, I've heard alot of it is playing squash. He's kept it off quite well now too.

    Ive started playing squash with mates recently- just once a week [twice when we have time] and it makes such a difference- i wouldn't say i have lost weight- but i feel so much fitter in myself!

    - just remember to stretch before you play- or it aches like mad the next day!!!

    i cant wait for the summer to play outdoor tennis- and swimming...yipee :biggrin:

    I think someone told me that he also did about 4 hours of cycling everyday!
    He's done fantastic, and i'm sure it's done his health a lot of good, and he should be very proud! Well done Nick! ;)
  8. He walked on stage at the British open last year and half the audience gasped then started clapping.

    No chance of that happening to you and I, me old partner!

  10. Agreed, but we are Bb bass players so it is in our genes and therefore not our fault.

    Can't argue with genetics............That's my excuse anyway.
