Fuck that's sad. His work with Elton & The Stones in the 70s was magnificent.

Especially on Madman Across The Water, I think he did Space Oddity too.

I remember Elton and Bernie going to bat for him pretty early on in (yes) Rolling Stone - basically saying that Lennon's more strident string arrangements on Imagine were little more than a cop from their work with Buckmaster.

Played the solo cello on the Gibbs' "Odessa (City On The Black Sea)" too, trivia fans.

A great, great talent. R.I.P.

Also played a key role in Miles' On The Corner, which he strongly disliked!

A huge talent indeed. RIP.

Paul Buckmaster. I read an article about the album years ago in which he was quoted as saying it was the Miles album he liked least of all, something along those lines.
