R.I.P. Mick Danby

Just got word that Mick Danby has passed away after eventually losing his battle with cancer. Bassist, piano tuner and occasional trumpet player, Mick will be remembered for all of those things but, most of all, as an all round good guy.
Sadly missed.
Lance.

It was very sad to hear that Mick Danby, superlative bass player and first class human being has died this week, after an illness of over a year. He played for us several times, and was a warm, witty generous bloke. He'll be missed by many.

best wishes Hazel

Mick, tuned our piano here at the studio regularly and was always warm and entertaining. unlike many other piano tuners Mick actually learned his trade while making pianos for bespoke piano builders Lawrence and Nash. I have used other piano tuners since but none have ever had the same level knowledge and skill especially when attention to detail in piano repair was concerned. He had the biggest tool kit and an even bigger heart.
RIP, Mick,
The last of the old school piano tuners. You are sorely missed.
