Before we get back to business with the latest rainy day blog for the weekend, here’s a photograph of Guy Pratt, Marc Brickman and Ian Pearson, in Glasgow, with Ian’s beautiful glass sculpture – or Glassman as he’s affectionately known.
Ian, as well as being a blog regular since our early days, is a professional glass-blower of some talent and made this fantastic sculpture himself, based on sculptor David MacIlwaine’s original wireman.
This stunning piece was presented to me backstage at the Royal Albert Hall on Wednesday evening, along with several other lovely gifts and a £100 donation to David and Polly to pass on to Crisis, the homelessness charity.
It was such a wonderful surprise and I’m incredibly touched by your kindness, so another big thank you to all involved.
Now, as promised, I’ve got another poll for you, courtesy of Ripper.
Which were your three favourite live tunes from David’s tour?
It’s not easy picking just three, I know, but please don’t list more than five. It would be interesting to see which tracks you feel were presented well in a live environment.
Thanks again for the goodies. Have a great weekend, everyone.
