Pete Sinfield (Andy co-writer, probably wants to be known as some sort of Prog Rocker as was a member of King Crimson, but really we all love him because he wrote 'Rain or Shine' for Five Star):
"I have taken a look at your Andy Hill songwriting guide and gosh, he has written far more songs than he ever told me about. This is no doubt down to the fact that as Mick and Keith (Mick Jagger and Keither Richards of The Rolling Stones) are known as The Glimmer Twins, we're the The Sieve-Head Twins. I'll forward the list to him. Don't hold your breath for a reply... he has had our last wrote ditty 'Passing Clouds' for six months and I'm still waiting to hear the demo".
Trevor Horn (probably Andy's most compeitive compeition in the eighies as record producer) once said:
"People are always talking about Bucks Fizz. They shouldn't be talking about Bucks Fizz, they should be talking about Andy Hill".
Mike Batt (Womble, legendary writer, producer and er, kinda gave birth to Katie Melua):
"Andy and I wrote 'The fool who fell to earth' about ten years ago I guess. He did a great demo of it, and it has nearly been recorded by lots of people, including Cher. Surprisingly, for such a strong song, it has never been recorded and released by anyone. I believe it will be recorded one day.
I don't write with Andy very often, but I see him all the time as we are great friends and our families get on very well together. Also, his son Thomas and my son Luke occasionally meet together with a couple of other guys and play their guitars in a small band.
He is a brilliant writer, with his own unique style and is able to put the feel of his songs across via the immaculate productions he does even on the most basic demos. Artists very often compeltely copy note for note or even ask to use his backing tracks. Itr is great to see him in the top ten this week (with D-Side) even though he is slightly higher than Katie Melua who is at number ten! I think Andy's song is at number nine, but I won't hold it against him!"
Passer-by who totally missed the point:
"Oh, when I was young, I loved to find an 'andy hill and I'd lie at the top and roll down it. Would REALLY annoy my parents 'cos I'd get totally covered in grass stains"!
Magritte (message left on a Bucks Fizz message board):
"I love the second chorus of "January's Gone". It's pure Andy Hill. Any of his tracks which end up awash in backing vocals are favourites of mine. The man is a genius. Britain's very own Phil Spector/Brian Wilson - without the problems".
