    MD George Thompson. I was privileged to be taught by Mr Thompson and also go with him to a few bands he was training. An absolute gentleman and somebody whose presence in the middle brought out the best in you.

    Interesting that you have to get to the bottom of page 5 before anyone actually added Harry Mortimer to the list (someone earlier discounted him because he'd not heard him play). I recently re-read his Biography and have also been listening to some Men O' Brass recordings (my particular favourite is Cathedral Brass recorded in Worcester Cathedral). Here's a man of impeccable credentials as a player, conductor and administration and a lifetime commitment to the world of brass bands. I'm not in any way knocking any others on the list but, for me, HM is THE genuine brass band legend.
