Photo Gallery Dedicated to William Waterhouse

William Waterhouse (1931-2007), known to all as Bill, was an important British bassoon performer, and researcher. He was dedicated to the advancement of knowledge of the bassoon like no other and also I might add, as eccentric as no other. I had the pleasure of knowing Bill for about the last dozen or so years of his life and I hope that the photos of him given here, all personally taken, show him as he was.
