John Maxwell Williams
I was fortunate enough to be in bands with John from the mid/late 80s to the early 90s when we moved away from Bromley. Apart from his obvious musical talent, he was one of the best bandmates I ever had (and I’ve had plenty!).
Always positive, reliable, constructive and considerate his attitude to playing just reflected his wider attitude to life. He was great fun to be with and never let his difficulties get in his way, and was certainly a properly gentle man.
He so much enjoyed the time we spent in The Albinos with Andy Nicholson, his friend since childhood, and the socialising that went along with it. I can never hear the phrase ‘dear boy’ without hearing John saying it. He will be much missed.
