Editor’s Note: We attended Williams’ funeral, which was attended by a great many music legends. A number of them were willing to write testimonials remembering Williams as both a friend and peer. Here’s what they had to say, in their own handwriting:

Ginger Baker

Hal Blaine

Tom Brechtlein

Ron Carter

Chick Corea

Wallace Rooney

Ed Shaghnessy

Wayne Shorter

Michael Shrieve

Steve Smith

Armand Zildjian
