Today’s picture, taken by Polly, is of Steve DiStanislao rehearsing for the UK shows (and, as requested, is dedicated to Piergiorgio).
It seems that everyone has been impressed with Steve’s drumming on tour, particularly when you consider the hugely important role a drummer plays in any band – and the fact that this band has, more or less, been performing together for at least 20 years.
David Crosby says that Steve is the best drummer he’s ever worked with. Steve says that davidgilmour.com is the best website he’s ever seen (bless him). To repay the compliment, if you’d like to leave a short note for Steve today to say how wonderful he has been, please be our guest.
Seriously, if you caught the band on tour, we want to hear your thoughts on Steve’s drumming.
A final word on the ‘P.U.L.S.E’ DVD:
As you’ll see from the Calendar, it will be out in the UK and Europe on Monday 10 July. It will be out in the US and Canada on Tuesday 11 July. Australia and New Zealand might have to wait until Saturday 15 July for it (Tuesday 11 July, if you’re lucky). Japan will have to wait until Wednesday 26 July.
More details when we have them, but please remember that this release is nothing to do with David’s management. The questions, complaints and cackles are somewhat wasted on them.
