Derek Lawrence R.I.P.

Andy Powell of Wishbone Ash wrote on his bandís facebook today, May 14, 2020:

With great sadness, I have just received news from friend and journalist Dave Ling, that our old friend and the architect of our first 3 albums, including the wonderful Argus album, Derek Lawrence, has passed away. Derek left us yesterday at age 78.

As the original record producer for Deep Purple, Derek was the connector, the catalyst if you will, after my onstage jam with Ritchie Blackmore at the Dunstable Civic Auditoreum. Ritchie made the call to Derek and from there we got to speak with Don Shane at Universal City, which led to the launch of our recording career.
