    My understanding is Derek has played on every James Bond film, since the first. Bonds have come and gone, as have MoneyPennys, Q's, M's, and others. In fact, as far as I know, the only person associated with every single Bond film has been Derek. He first played the famous 7 note screams that tell everyone, "Bond, James Bond," at the age of 19. Here is to you, Derek.

    Yep, I love that video of him recording the latest film. Accuracy, sound, style and intonation like no other. Flawless!
