yes he was... I figured I would post this in the High End forum because I don't think you get more Pro than Geoff...they can move it if they want a better spot for it.

I met him once.
He seemed like a really nice man.

I recommend his book.

Geoff, you are my hero. Strawberry Fields Forever! Recorded on two 4-tracks!

Thanks for blowing my 12 year-old mind in 1966 with that glorious mix and ground-breaking recording.

Sympathies to your family and friends. Your legacy will live on with all those fab mixes!

Yes, I was just talking to him the other week... he was planning on visiting again soon to catch up and answer the rest of the questions he wasn't able to get to the first time around. He was really enthusiastic about it even if he didn't have as much time as he would have liked initially to hang out here. Very sad news...
