Concert touring veteran and EAW application support group representative for the EMEA region, Moray McMillin passed away after a long battle with cancer. McMillin started his road warrior days with UK sound rental company Tasco in London . By 1980, he moved to Los Angeles, working with Black Sabbath, Saxon and a solo Ozzy Ossbourne. Later, he became front-of-house engineer on Motorhead’s Ace of Spades tour. He returned to the UK as a freelance engineer and took up FOH duties with bands such as Siouxsie & The Banshees and Whitesnake. However, it was as Deep Purple’s engineer over a 10-year period that Moray made his mark.
In 2005, McMillin dropped his bags and began work in EAW’s UK sales office, and later joined the company’s application support group as EMEA rep. In this role, he developed sound systems for a variety of venues, many of which were familiar to him from his touring days.
Moray is survived by his wife, Antonella, and two sons. In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that donations be sent to The Hospice of Saint Francis, Spring Garden Lane, Berkhamsted, Herts, HP4 3GW.
