When I worked with Phil, he was the most down to earth, friendly, helpful 'rock star' you could ever meet. We shared jokes, favourite albums and he would stop his car on the street just to talk to me. He was just another bloke and didn't want to be treated any other way.

Like anyone, the higher his fame got, I'm sure it had to change Phil, but so often, it struck me that it was those around him that made things change.
