    It is with the greatest sadness that we release the news of the death of Adrian Davison, an integral member of the team at Michael Rath trombones and long term member and Eb bass player with the Yorkshire Co-op Band.

    Adrian was aged 28 when he was killed in an accident on his motorbike which collided with a car on his way home from a band rehearsal on Monday 11 September, 2006.

    Our deepest sympathies are with his wife Sarah, parents Madeline and Richard and all his friends and family.

    I can't believe it, a true friend and terrific bandsman he will be sadly missed by all. Deepest sympathies to Sarah and all the family.

    As Adrian's old conductor at Yorkshire Co-op (Jayess Queensbury) I would like to send my deepest condolences to his family
    I liked Adrian a lot and was a big fan of his - I once told him he could reach the very top in banding if he wanted.
    I will always remember his bass solo in English Heritage that won us the Tameside contest a few years ago

    I have just read this thread and I have to say how shocked and saddened about this news. Adrian was a former band mate of mine at Yorkshire Co-op and a really likeable guy.

    John payed tribute to his playing at Tameside (which was after my time ) but one of my best playing memories of him would be playing ' Basso Continuo' at a packed hall in Stroud. First ever Solo in public I believe, and it was faultless. As good as any Bass player in the country could have played.

    Deepest sympathies to his wife and family.

    This is very sad news. I didn't know him, but its always such a tragic waste when someone so young and obviously so talented passes away. My deepest sympathy to his family and friends.

    Tabby - I was so sorry to hear this tragic news. Deepest sympathies to Adrian's family and to his friends in the band. News like this certainly puts other problems into perspective.

    I know that he'll be sadly missed.

    I'm really sorry to hear this terrible news.

    Adie was a true musical talent and really sound guy. He will be sadly missed by all.

    Sincere condolences to Adie's family, friends and the band. Adie was lovely. So warm, welcoming and such a fun loving guy. I'm just thankful that I got a chance to meet him and experience both his fabulous playing and his wonderful personality.

    I'm so sorry.

    Terrible news and such a sad loss. My deepest sympathies go to his friends and family.

    I can't say I ever met Adrian, but I think that it's also worth mentioning his unsurpassed skills in the workshop. He was truly the best slide technician I have ever come across and his work on my trombone was nothing short of witchcraft! He talked me through the whole process of what he was doing and I really felt that I had left my 'baby' in the safest hands.

    I am sure that he will not only be sadly missed at his band, but also at Raths. Huge condolences from myself and from GUS band.

    What a sad loss, I met him a couple of times and he was well respected as a player and as a person. My thoughts to his family

    Although we didn't know Adrian personally, we were with him and other people from Yorkshire Coop on Monday as Leisa has been helping them out for the forthcoming Buxton contest. He had also done some excellent work on an instrument for me at Mick Rath in the past.
    It is shocking to think this has happened just after we had been with him. Our deepest sympathies go to his family and friends.

  19. Still hasn't sunk in since Andi told me - Adie was a dream to play with and arguably the best EEb player I ever sat next to..... He was also a monster trombonist, and was the trombonist with the Bradford Bulls band.
    The world will be a sadly quieter place without Adie around - I shall personally miss him terribly and my deepest sympathies and thoughts are with his wife and family at this tragic time.

  20. "As former chairman of United Co-op Yorkshire, my wife and I would also like to pass on our deepest condolences and sympathies to Adrian's wife and family at this most trying of times. I knew Adrian when both Jayess '87 (who I was chairman) and Jayess Queensbury merged in 1998. He was a very talented musician and, has been mentioned elsewhere on this thread, a fantastic technician with all things brass.
    Once again, I would like to pass on our deepest sympathies,
    Phil and Mo Stephenson."
