I’ve been dedicating a blog entry to each of the musicians and main players in David’s touring party, and today it’s the turn of Robert Wyatt, founder member of Soft Machine.
Fans of David should be particularly grateful to Robert, for as curator of the 2001 Meltdown music festival, he coaxed David into performing at London’s Royal Festival Hall. The success of that critically-acclaimed semi-acoustic show spawned similar concerts in both London and Paris the following year. The tremendous success of these shows surely played a part in the ‘On An Island’ tour.
So please feel free to leave a message for Robert if you’d like to, or perhaps tell others a little about Robert’s music, if you’ve followed his career or seen him in concert.
Thanks to everyone who told us which of Polly’s photos are their favourites. You can vote on which you like best of all, from a shortlist of ten, with our latest poll (coming later today).
Thanks also to all who popped into the chatroom this morning. It was really nice chatting with you.
The next chat will be tomorrow at 3PM UK time.
Please see the calendar for chatroom opening times.
