Paul Williams 1940-2019

One more Roller gone.
Again fate helps me to remember the truly pleasurable friendship I shared with the talented, funny, on-the-edge but charming with it … Paul Williams.
From the moment we met in ’63 when we both played in the Wes Minster Five right up until only two weeks before his ‘leaving’ I never stopped laughing in his presence.
My kindest thoughts go to Diane, Sam and Ashton of course. Wonderful voice, good bass player, excellent fake piano-player with a remarkable ear for harmony and absurd humour. An enormous loss to music and friends.
Rest in peace Squiblett … your memory will stay with me forever.

  1. So sorry to hear of Paul’s passing. Although we took different paths back in the late 60s I often think of him. Without him I wouldn’t have got involved with Zoot (when he sat in with Manfred Mann at the Marquee Club) .
