I have had the good fortune to experience rehearsals with Steve Sykes, Philip Harper(only once but boy was it good!) Nigel Seaman (my all time favourite what a gentleman love him to bits) Johnny williams, Johnathon Camps and David johnson (new but will be one of the greats and had good result with newly promoted Verwood in 3rd Section). (oh and the incomparible Derek Greenwood how could I forget him!} But what makes him (or her) really good? It has to be more than musical genius doesn`t it? Is it man management? confidence? Experience or even just good jokes and the ability to push a band to the limits, get results and inspire us to work like devils?
