My comment about Hugh Padgham appearing in videos is from having seen some in the 1980s. The ones I recall are

  • "Don't Lose My Number", Phil Collins (1985)
  • "All I Need Is a Miracle", Mike + the Mechanics (1986)
  • "Taken In", Mike + the Mechanics (1986)

The "Gated Drum" Sound[edit]

I added an interesting Padgham quote from the 2006 video interview (linked from the main page) which describes how it all happened. And since the gated drum topic is rather significant, I gave it its own heading and separated it from his main biography. I think it helps the flow of the article, but if you guys think it's better the old way, feel free to take the heading out. Cheers Wikisicky 03:17, 4 December 2007 (UTC).

I had the pleasure and privilege to work at SSL (Solid State Logic) in the early '90s and that certainly is the story that is perpetuated there with pride – albeit with more technical details. I have seen some other stories about Padgham's gated drum sound around Wikipedia, but I must say that the one above quoted by Hugh himself is the one I've been familiar with for the past 18 years. At the time there were still some people around in the company who witnessed it first or second hand (someone was called in to do the mod to wire the "Listen Mic" output to the patchbay, something that became a standard feature in 1993 with the introduction of the G+ Series).


"Hugh enjoyed four (4) number hits in 2005 and 2006 with McFly as well as Eight Top Ten Singles" - I'm not sure what this means. Did he have four number four hits in 2005 and 2006 with McFly, and eight top ten singles with other acts? Did he have four hits with McFly and eight other hits with McFly? Is the writer trying to make really, really sure that we understand the number four? -Ashley Pomeroy (talk) 21:49, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Possibly missing sources in "3 Awards"[edit]

Hello, I'm the one who has edited some things recently.

3.1 Grammy Awards:

Some years ago, there were some sites on the internet with all nominations and wins since the beginning (1959). Unfortunately most of those sites have been taken down. There is just this site. Because of the authenticity of these facts I have linked all these nominations and wins with the suitable wikipedia articles. So all wins and most of these nominations can be found in other wikipedia articles as well, except the nomination "Engineered Recording" for ...But Seriously in 1991 and the nomination for "Producer of the Year" in 1994, which can be found in the site "awardsandshows". But anyway these nominations are correct! By the way, with respect to the "Producer of the Year" win and two nominations, I have put in the column "nomination" the respective albums for which these wins and nominations stand for. (No Jacket Required for "Producer of the Year"-win, ...But Seriously for "Producer of the Year"-nominee and Ten Summoner's Tales for "Producer of the Year"-nominee), because it is definitely clear for which albums Hugh Padgham as a producer in that years was nominated for.

3.2 Brit Awards

Almost the same a in "3.1 Grammy Awards": In this source of the Brit Awards there can be found the two nominations for "British Producer" in 1986 and 1987. I have put in the column the respective albums, because it is definetely clear that Hugh Padgham as a producer in 1985 (ceremony in 1986) was nominated for No Jacket Required and in 1986 (ceremony in 1987) for Invisible Touch.

If someone put these sources in the right format, this someone would be welcome. I hope that any time this sentence: "This article needs additional citations for verification." will be taken down. (talk) 23:52, 24 February 2013 (UTC)
