Says composer, recording artist, visual artist, bon vivant, and renown Mott the Hoople keyboardist Morgan Fisher …. “George Ford, brother of superstar Emile Ford …he was the smoothest, nicest bassist – and man -I have ever met. [George] played with Al Stewart, and Medicine Head – with whom I played – and later The Shadows! One of nature’s gentlemen and it really showed in his always-delicious bass lines.”
A soulful pocket player, the late George Ford also plied his craft with The Checkmates with Emile, The Ferris Wheel, Cherry Vanilla, Cliff Richard, Linda Lewis, The Shadows and Steve Harley, among others.
