Overend Watts / In Memory

When you meet a hero, you always hope they'll be the people you'd like them to be: such was Peter Overend Watts. A charming, affable, eccentric gent and an astute listener who was as inquisitive of my career as I was of his- Pete was also the inspiration behind Mark Preston and my work-in-progress documentary Know Your Bass Player.

My interview with Pete in November 2013 was among the last he did, if not his final on-the-record dialogue just previous to Mott's farewell performance in London at the 02.

I plan to publish the remainder of that talk in the near future.

Godspeed Overend!
