Anthony 'Muffman' Williams: a tribute

Kim Johnson tells us in his book, The Illustrated Story of Pan: Second Edition that,"Anthony 'Muffman' Williams is arguably the most important panman in history, because of his brilliance as an inventor, tuner, arranger and captain. He introduced the use of oil drums for the background pans, the cellos and bass, and then he put them on wheels so the heavy oil drums could be played on the road.
