Given that Jamie has put together this great video on Tim Cross has a tribute it feels right that we TUTS should pull together some other posts and video's to remember a very special man.

I feel that our old friend C5 would like to start this tribute, but let's twist things around and start with Tim Cross on Channel 5. A quote that would make C5 even happier...

"Channel 5 was enormous fun to do, and one of the happiest times
of my life."

Tim Cross

The Fire In The Darkness Deja Vu is all too plain to see, even down to planning their final Earthbound's. C5 adhored Tim Cross.

Jamie put together a video from his interviews for the TV documentary, Tim Cross talking about Oldfield etc.

The Great Tim Cross TUTS interview by Uli

Good idea, I was about to bring this up again. Very fond memories here!
He gave such good & informative replies, that this has remained my favourite after all these years (even though T. Renwick, Vom & TV interviews were all very good as well!).  8)

Currently in preparation: "Lucky Us: Unreleased songs and demos, Volume Two." After the untimely death of my great friend and musical partner Tim Cross, I'm working to get a fast release for the second volume of songs I worked with him on in the 80's. Titled after one of the songs we wrote together, this set contains some of Tim's most beautiful arrangements and keyboard work. It will be a fine tribute to him. TV

What a perfect title and tribute.

Lucky you two.

Lucky us.

Sorry Uli, I wasn't very clear, what I really meant by Lucky Us was...

Lucky TV and Tim for having such a great adventurous journey together and lucky us for being able to follow them make such great progress. :)

One of my favourite memories of Tim Cross. I'd just given him a C5 Fire in The Darkness t-shirt after the Elland Earthbound 2007 gig. Tim got really excited and said "I've never had my name on a t-shirt before".

What a magic moment with a lovely unique guy...

C5 watching his heroes Tim Cross and TV Smith in 2001.

He's singing along to his favourite Channel 5 songs at the first ever TUTS Earthbound show at Attila's 7th Glastonwick festival.
