Which is the Pink Floyd song you most enjoy playing? (Lucia)
On ‘Time’, was it your idea to mute the bass strings during the drum sequence? (Frank Par)
No. What do you think they did for the 14 years between recording it and me turning up?
Do you play original bass lines to Pink Floyd songs or do you create your own interpretation? (Beau)
I used to mess with them occasionally – just to keep busy, you understand – but the wisdom of age has taught me otherwise, and I cringe hearing some of the things I used to do. I’ve actually been more faithful to the originals on this tour than I ever was with Pink Floyd.
What’s the most difficult David Gilmour or Pink Floyd track for you to play live? (IMcK)
I used to hate ‘Us And Them’ because the bass line was so boring, but then David gave me a harmony to sing and I was happy.
Do you think nowadays there could be any new band with such unique sound and ideas like Pink Floyd? (Gian Luca)
Since touring since the mid ’80s with the Floyd, which tour has been the most memorable and why? (Andy)
The ’87-’88 tour probably, because I’d never been part of anything like it. It was every young man’s dream, although I probably remember more of this last one, as I go to bed these days. Although I did have to be dragged out of bed in Manchester.
Would you do another Pink Floyd tour? (Bill S.)
