‘Dear Bert – we will miss him. From early childhood throughout our lives he was Britain’s Mr Guitar. He seemed to be the first person we saw on television showing us how to play and he left a lasting impression on us. We use to joke about how he played a thousand notes a minute but we were always impressed with him. Like us, he loved the guitar and communicated that passion to many generations. Bert, we’ll miss you.’
- Paul McCartney
