Sad to hear of the death of Paul Buckmaster. His work on the early Elton John albums was outstanding and I'll think of him whenever I play them( which is often). The world has lost a great talent. Love to his family and friends.

So sad to lose Paul.... too young!
I shall miss our mad rants together
over many years... sometimes we were
even in agreement and... especially the
big bear hugs when we met each other...
He may be gone but his genius lives
on and he holds a very loving place
in my heart forever.

To Adrian, Rosemary and the rest of Paul's family,

Please know how much Paul was loved and appreciated by me and many, many others. He was my friend for the past seven and a half years and I will always treasure the way he cared for me; he was like the big brother I never had, always with a smile and a kind word and with advice if I needed it. I will miss his beautiful heart and will always think of him with love. May God bless and keep him, and you, too.

My sympathy goes to the Buckmaster family. Paul opened my mind to appreciate strings, especially on the early Elton John albums, in a way that music appreciation class in elementary school never could. Thanks for all those great arrangements.

Dearest Paulie,
You left and I didn't have a chance to say goodbye...You were a brilliant light in this world, whose genius was never fully realized, and appreciated enough by the masses.
I shall miss our long, enlightened conversations, your insight and strong convictions.
I feel honored to have known you over these past few years. Yet, I'm still in disbelief that I won't be seeing you around anymore. You shall truly be missed.
Thank you for being the strong soul that you are, Paulie. May your soul now enjoy the peace and joy that you have earned and deserve.
God Bless you. Peace unto you, my brother!
May your family be at peace as well.
Much love dear one, Donna
