There was an excellent documentary on BBC Four a few years back, Still Bill.

As well as being a wonderful musician he came across as a thoroughly fine human being. It highlighted some of the work he did to help fellow stammerers - most of which the outside world knew nothing about.

Good call, I was trying to remember what it was called. The scene at the school with students with speech impediments had me in tears. It was that emotional intelligence which elevated his musicianship, great artist.

Completely agree. It was incredibly moving and he was a genuine inspiration for all those at the school.

Came across as a wonderful human being, and I hadn’t considered it in that way before, but you’re right, his emotional intelligence had a profound effect on his music.
