For many years, my and Jez Nelson’s company Somethin’ Else, was in competition with Tim and Simon’s at Unique in a fledgling audio production industry. Their great success pushed us to achieve more and I’m sure vice versa. And yet, despite being competitors, Tim was always humble in victory, gracious in defeat and a true gentleman to meet and talk with. I always found him to be warm, welcoming and encouraging of our success – seeing it as victory for the independent production sector which he had led on creating, rather than a shot aimed at Unique. He had the quality of being a true statesman of the industry and always deserved all the accolades and recognition he received. With the kindest of wishes to his loved ones and those closest to him – you can be proud of the standing he achieved in British audio.
