Initially through brass banding. That was the only time we ever played in a section together. I was a kid, and very new to playing. I heard him play recitals when I was at university.
Later we both entered "the profession", which didn't involve direct contact, more a case of "playing in different orchestras together".
I often think of things he said, did, played, and even wrote on some of the tuba parts I see regularly. These things remind me of what a remarkable personality and artist he was.
