This evening I attended a dinner for the V&A Museum who'd brought some of their benefactors over on a cultural excursion. On my table was Edward Atkin, the guy who founded Avent, the baby products company. He sold it recently and now spends his time being philanthropic to the arts. Anyway, nice guy, and turned out that he also co-designed - with Dave Simmons - the Simmons drum kit, so beloved of early 80s synthband drummers. Altogether now: piaooooow!
