More from Guy

00014_blog.jpg

Well done to everyone who identified Dick Parry’s shoes yesterday.

Here’s the latest instalment from Guy’s Q&A session.

Just to remind you all that the chatroom will be open today between 2PM and 4PM (UK time). Everyone is welcome, so don’t be shy. It’s very easy to use and trouble-makers are swiftly dealt with, so come and introduce yourself.

All you need to do is click the link above, enter a username (please make it obvious so that people will recognise you) and you’re in.

Just please pay attention to the rules as you enter. These are in red and must be adhered to.


Which is the Pink Floyd song you most enjoy playing? (Lucia)

‘Echoes’.

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)

No.

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.)

Yes.

  1. I’m enjoying reading Guy’s comments. He’s pretty damned well-spoken for a guy in a rock band.

    And hi to Jon Carin. This is a very cool blog. But you all knew that.

    Happy Halloween, everyone! The skeleton on my front door is wearing a little mocked-up Pink Floyd t-shirt.

  2. CAPTION: The day thats in it Guy decides to have a go dressing as the grim reaper.

  3. [Do you think nowadays there could be any new band with such unique sound and ideas like Pink Floyd? (Gian Luca) – No.]

    I remain optimistic but somehow doubt there could ever be another Pink Floyd. Perhaps Richard and Nick have some ideas floating around they could bounce off David one sunny Sunday afternoon . . .

  4. [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 sooooo boring]

    It’s always all about the bass players isn’t it Guy 😛

    “Us and Them” is Floyd’s greatest song and saxophone showcase. You don’t hear Dick whining when your playing “One of These Days” now do you?

    🙂

  5. Hi all –

    The gremlins must be at it again 🙂 Just tried to log into chat and kept getting the “closed” message.

    Guy’s responses to all the questions have been a terrific read thus far.

    Looking forward to the “ladies” competition later this week.

  6. Fed,

    Did you oversleep during your siesta? The time should be right since we both turned clocks back, yet the chatroom is closed. I guess I will keep trying.

    ~Erin

    [The time is right but the server is definitely not. Please bear with us and accept our sincere apologies again. – Features Editor]

  7. Fed, I tried the Chat Room for the first time today between 2-2.30 but it kept saying it was closed.

    Am I missing something?

    Mat.

    [Just the two posts above, Mat. Sorry for the inconvenience. It’s open now. – Features Editor]

  8. Hey Fed! I tried signing up the Chat but it was closed…CLOSED, CLOSED, CLOSED, CLOSED, CLOSED.

    ih! ih! ih! Isn’t true! I’ve neither tried…but I was thinking how much you can be already nervous with the server problems and I wanted to give my contribution to your hysteria! But just for joke!!!

    With love

    Oh, no dear! Crunchie Bites? Picnics? Horrid white ones? Which ones? No no! There is no story! Or you prepare me the walnut gnocchi or you won’t have my forgiveness!

    …I am joking! My abilities to cook are so awful as your and I understand you. So, don’t worry! A piece of bread will be enough!

    L!

    [I can toast it for you if you want. I can just about manage that in my bombsite-like kitchen. – Features Editor]

  11. Wow, with all these server issues this site may change from David Gilmour to Rage Against the Machine.

    I’ll be travelling for a few days so I’ll miss all the excitement of the Blog as well as the ladies competition. Last time I checked I wasn’t eligible for it anyway.

    Hmmm…here is one to ponder, will you really have to be a lady for the competition or will you allow transvestites to enter as well?? And don’t forget, Aerosmith said it best, Dude Looks Like A Lady.

    Andrew

  12. FEd,

    I was in the chatroom, what happened to you? It’s still open right now, an hour and 10 minutes past closing time.

    Any way, BLESSED SAMHAIN to you and Mr. Gilmour

    Penny

    [I’m still waiting for someone to tell me, Penny. – Features Editor]

  13. fed,

    i arrived at the chatroom late, delighted to see it was still open. no sign of you and i got booted out twice. i wasn’t there long enough to be considered idle. what’s uh… the deal?

    [Pass. I’m sorry that you’ve also had difficulties this evening… Your call is important to us and will be answered as soon as the next available operator becomes available. – Features Editor]

  14. [Do you think nowadays there could be any new band with such unique sound and ideas like Pink Floyd? (Gian Luca)]

    “‘Ere Larry, I gotta great new band called The Pink Floyd Experience, and some great noo songs. One’s about a Transvestite who nicks ladies clothes orf washing lines and ends up in the slammer……… la, la, la… Moonshine, Washing Line, la,la, la,”

    “Don’t call us, we’ll call you!”

  15. Geez Fed, we didn’t even get a chance to say goodbye. I take it the server is giving you problems today.

    Great chat today all.

    Spam yah later

    ~Erin

    [There was no way of getting a message to you beforehand, unfortunately. My apologies. You did get two hours more than usual out of me, though. And I’m going to miss the start of the Liverpool-Bordeaux game now… – Features Editor]

  16. Wow, the ending of the chat session was very sudden! I guess it was because of all the server problems.. or because of all the spam 😛

    On a different note, thanks Guy for answering our questions. You are so funny!

    with love,
    ayako

  17. Caption Competition

    Guy, smugly thinking to himself “Now this is a proper black t’shirt”

    Hmmm… I’ve not seen much from the Panty Bunchers since the Chatroom closed… maybe they are all off having their nails done… 🙂

  18. [Pass. I’m sorry that you’ve also had difficulties this evening… Your call is important to us and will be answered as soon as the next available operator becomes available. – Features Editor]

    sorry to hear it, fed. no worries. you’ve had a nightmare with the blog server lately so i don’t want the same to happen with the chatroom’s. good luck with that.

    loved guy’s latest answers, especially the one about ‘us and them’. hope there’s more tomorrow.

    [It’s been an absolute ‘mare, mate. – Features Editor]

  19. *Caption Competition*

    “This new vacuum cleaner is rather large and having to use it live, well, just sucks…”

  20. No worries Fed, enjoy your game.

    When do we get to hear more about the ladies competetion?

    Rudders – I met a lot of these Panty Bunchers, and I can’t remember any of them with done-up nails. In my case, playing guitar with nails just doesn’t work. Priorities, priorities . .

    ~Erin

    [It will probably be Monday, seeing as it’s caught your imagination. I think it would be good to make you wait a little longer. – Features Editor]

  21. Hmmm, installed the new Internet Explorer 7 and it’s rather good, but it won’t allow me to download the Active X file I need to get into the chat room.

    Hope you all had a good time.

  22. Fedmeister… another VoiceMail message you could use…

    I’m sorry, but you’ve reached someone who doesn’t give a sh*t. If you feel you must leave a message, it will be ignored in the order received.

    F**k you very much….

    [You know I’d never use that… – Features Editor]

  23. Hi FEd,

    You were greatly missed today in chat! The gremlins must be horrible little beasts allowing access to most of the Irregulars but not letting you in the Barn. No respect at all … and then you have to miss the start of your football game, to add insult to injury! To the best of my knowledge we were all on our best behavior … well, maybe not our best behavior, but we did obey the rules.

    Thanks to Guy for his latest contribution to ‘inquiring minds want to know’ … but what’s the hostility problem Matt? Or were you just joking? Don’t ask the questions or read the answers if you’re going to be upset by them. I certainly didn’t think that Guy’s answer was in any way an insult to the song itself.

    The Gilmourettes have now been christened with a new name, thanks to Erin, Angelo, Rudders and others … the Panty Bunchers. What do you think FEd? Does it fly as ‘appropriate’? Maybe we should amend it to the Irregular Panty Bunchers … with a nod to Arnold Layne! Someone this morning threw in the word munchers, not sure if it was an accident or not, but it certainly painted a picture!

    Peace and love everyone!

    [I prefer The Gilmourettes, but whatever tickles your fancy. – Features Editor]

  24. Quoting Gian / Guy: [Do you think nowadays there could be any new band with such unique sound and ideas like Pink Floyd? (Gian Luca) – No.]

    Hmmmm, strange….I thought that for a decade too!!

    So many bands that I thought I liked, were just a ‘quick fix’ that I grew tired of in the space of just 20 or so album listens…However, there has been one band over the past year I found that I have never failed to tire of (other than Davids new band of course!), I’m just not sure if I can give ’em a mention on this site……?

    Anyway, it’s great to hear from Guy first hand via the blog. I saw his show at Windsor earlier this year and it was bloody excellent (a very talented fella, in more ways than one). I wanted to come up and say well done in the bar after the show, but came over all a bit shy!! So now I have the safety of a monitor and keyboard to hide behind…here goes:

    Well done Guy, you’re a truly genuine, no B.S., top bloke! I love your playing and you have an excellent sense of humour too – I can really relate to the sories you tell and your enthusiasm on stage really makes me smile.

    Thank you!

    Emma

    P.S. If I am allowed to say the band name…it’s Porcupine Tree – bloody excellent (if a little strange). Their gig at the Astoria last month was amazing.

  25. [I remain optimistic but somehow doubt there could ever be another Pink Floyd. Perhaps Richard and Nick have some ideas floating around they could bounce off David one sunny Sunday afternoon . . .]

    We could clone them and teach their clones how to play thier respective instruments. I’m going to start saving up money so we can do this. I’ve got $5.23 so far….

  26. Caption..Wow Guy!..check your fly before you hit the stage. Shine On You Crazy Diamond takes on a whole new meaning!..as Rick and David do their best to ignore.

    Feel free not to post this one F.E. as it may be a little too suggestive for this G rated site.

    [G rated? – Features Editor]

  27. Fed you were missed today. I’m really looking forward to the end of this month. David’s cd/dvd set of AOL sessions and On an Island will make some of my family very happy at Christmas.

    It’s really cool that Jon, Steve and Guy can take time out to join us on the Blog. But come on Guys take a chance and join us in the chat room. For we bloggers won’t bite. I even bet that Lucia will tell you how to make walnut gnocchi or Matt will tell you one of his jokes. So come and join us.

    Hope to see you in the chat room on Thursday, Fed.

    Take Care,
    Thomas

  28. […Your call is important to us and will be answered as soon as the next available operator becomes available. – Features Editor]

    You crack me up, FEd!

    So sorry you’re having technical problems. We’ll try to be patient. I said TRY.

    Becky BOO!

  29. CAPTION:

    Guy was quite proud of incorporating his prized goat, Bessy, into the act…David was not amused….

  30. Caption:

    “POOF!” –With his deluxe life-size stand-alone magic wand machine, Guy the Jolly Giant Genie/Gleeful Fairy Godfather suddenly appears onstage, sprinkling a cloud of Mysterious Magic Music Dust over David and Rick to grant them their wish of being able to nail that oh-so-commonly-beloved 70’s tune, “Dream Weaver”….

  31. It was a good blog day for me with the irregulars, you are a riot lot. Lots of laughs today, we all needed it.

  32. Happy Wednesday,

    [I used to hate ‘Us And Them’ because the bass line was sooooo boring, but then David gave me a harmony to sing and I was happy…]

    Guy, you seem like you get easily bored. I get this impression that there is a ‘Lemmy’ inside of you trying to break out.

  33. After a long journey for my work (in Africa) I come back to the blog!

    Hello FED Hello BLOGGERS!

    The DG AOL music session is wonderful and I can’t wait to buy the DVD (still 20 days…..!)

    I read that Roger has planned the tour for the next year…and David..?

    Ciao FED!

    [David has loads planned, but he’s not telling. – Features Editor]

  34. [David has loads planned, but he’s not telling. – Features Editor]

    Intriguing comment there FEd.

    Optimism shines eternal…

    Can we look forward to David participating on Richards album/tour then ?

    [You never know. – Features Editor]

  35. [David has loads planned, but he’s not telling. – Features Editor]

    Bet it’s Brazil, isnt it?

    I only hope we dont get the drip drip approach to tour dates that some people like to announce( no names but…)First date is unplugged in the shed. Then two days later it’s the lounge thats gets the open air treatment, next comes the funky kitchen and it’ll be weeks before the Barn Dance is announced!

    Ian Pearson

  36. [We could clone them and teach their clones how to play their respective instruments. I’m going to start saving up money so we can do this. I’ve got $5.23 so far….]

    We could be onto something here . . . I could donate a second hand mouse (still working) 8)

  37. Yes Porcupine Tree are very interesting and quite attracting many of my old Floydian fellows.

    I think what Pink Floyd did in that particular moment in time can never be repeated by anyone, this is it.

    And the music market is changed a lot, so fast and aggressive, and the media.

    But I have some projects going on…

  38. [P.S. If I am allowed to say the band name…it’s Porcupine Tree – bloody excellent (if a little strange). Their gig at the Astoria last month was amazing.]

    As much as he enjoys them, dont let Steven Wilson hear you compare Porcupine Tree to Pink Floyd.

    I dont think he would take to kindly to that.

    Agree with the fact that they are a great live band though.

    I would also recommend any reader here to give the Pineapple Thief a listen to. Another wonderful and, at the moment, relatively unknown band.

    Pete – Coventry

  39. as i’m seconding things today (i just agreed with julie in thanking polly for the shoe pics at an earlier blog), i’d also like to support everyone who had recommended porcupine tree. they’re great.

    thanks for the heads up re: pineapple thief, pete.

    fed, i’m loving james dean bradfield’s first solo album by the way.

    [It’s the second best album released this year, in my opinion. – Features Editor]

  40. We did have a great chat yesterday! Angelo gave us a true ’80’s flashback in between his testoserone injections….and in yesterday’s paper, I read that leggings are making a comeback!

    I say us panty bunchers need to get out the leggings and shoulder pads, put a can of Aqua Net in our hair, and head to the mall!

  41. [It’s the second best album released this year, in my opinion. – Features Editor]

    better than bob dylan’s??!!! surely not.

    [I think so. – Features Editor]

  42. Victor,

    I would not recommend a particular Pineapple Thief album as they are all very strong. The latest ‘Little Man’ is imminent.

    Have you heard any of Steven Wilsons other work. For me, Together We Are Stranger by Noman is extraordinarily good.

    Pete – Coventry

  43. Hello everyone just want to say Happy Halloween to everyone hope you have a great night.

    Blessed Be
    clarice

  44. [It will probably be Monday, seeing as it’s caught your imagination. I think it would be good to make you wait a little longer. – Features Editor]

    Fed, you such a tease! Whether it is today, Monday, or 6 months from now, you know, I’ll be here.

    Gabrielle, I think the ‘Panty Bunchers’ is just the state we’re in now, waiting for the ladies competetion. I’m with Fed, I MUCH rather prefer The Gilmourettes. Must be the tomboy in me. I’ll be a Gilmourette for life, but if you guys are sticking with the Panty Bunchers, I’ll have to bow out gracefully. Hey, everyone has limits!

    I’m sure a majority of the guys don’t mind being called the ‘Panty Munchers,’ but it doesn’t have much to do with the big guy. C’mon boys, you can think up something better then that, can’t you?! There’s a competetion for you!

    [David has loads planned, but he’s not telling. – Features Editor]

    See Fed, teasing us again! I think you just like keeping our panties in a bunch!

    [I say us panty bunchers need to get out the leggings and shoulder pads, put a can of Aqua Net in our hair, and head to the mall! – Lynn] I’m with you Lynn! Just as soon as David’s hair is past his shoulders again. 😉

    After just having Halloween, it feels like it should be the end of the week, and we’re not even half through.

    I won’t make the chat tomorrow. I’ll set my alarm for 6am, but 3am is just NOT gonna happen. The one next week looks good though. Thanks Fed, for spreading out the times. I wish I could be at all of the chats, but I’m glad everyone gets a chance, it’s another great asset of this wonderful place.

    ~Erin

  45. Hi Fed,

    Lynn wrote: “I read that leggings are making a comeback! ”

    I laughed out loud when a co-worker’s ‘tween’ daughter came into our area wearing a denim skirt and leggings. I guess fashion comes full circle. So I wonder when Parachute Pants vand Aquanet are going to have the spotlight again?

    “We could clone them and teach their clones how to play their respective instruments”

    And we could make masks of the real PF’s faces for them to wear…

    ” I’ve actually been more faithful to the originals on this tour than I ever was with Pink Floyd.”

    That’s commendable. Especially with PF, there is a delicate balance of keeping the true feel and mood of the song with bringing something of yourself to it. As I get older, I am less fond of people covering songs and totally changing it up (i.e. Metallica’s Turn the Page v. Seger’s).

    It looks like I missed a good chat yesterday. Panty Bunchers? Yoou can’t go wrong with a name like that.

    Have a good day all,
    Mike

  46. [David has loads planned, but he’s not telling. – Features Editor]

    Ohhhhhhhhhhhh, I do like surprises ………………..

    I missed a good chatroom by all accounts yesterday ( pc let me down again )I shall make it my business to be ready for tomorrow

    Rgds Geoff Duffy ( Just back from the Betty Ford and booking the priory… hic )

  47. The DG AOL music session is wonderful and I can’t wait to buy the DVD (still 20 days…..!)

    Hey did I miss an announcement??? Is there a release date for the AOL sessions? Have you worked out the details for irregulars et al to buy the DVD only on this site? Don’t wanna start anything but does this guy know what he’s talking about???

    Tim

    [You can still view the AOL Sessions online, Tim, and the release dates of David’s special edition CD/DVD have been on the calendar for a while now (click your name for that). As for our limited quantity of DVDs, no details have been divulged as yet, but it shouldn’t be much longer, so don’t go too far. – Features Editor]

  48. Fedmeister

    I was browsing through Amazon and happened upon this…

    Is it a DG authorised release? I ask because the author is listed as “Unknown”…

    [That’s just lazy Amazon editing. It is official and will no doubt be far more accurate than what you find for free online. – Features Editor]

  49. [David has loads planned, but he’s not telling. – Features Editor]

    FED you make me feel so good….!:)

    You give always the right answers! Thank you!

    [And some might say I’m just full of shit. Thanks, Claudio. – Features Editor]

  50. [The Gilmourettes have now been christened with a new name, thanks to Erin, Angelo, Rudders and others … the Panty Bunchers. What do you think FEd? Does it fly as ‘appropriate’?

Someone this morning threw in the word munchers, not sure if it was an accident or not, but it certainly painted a picture!]

    I am partial to irregulars, for myself. Panty Bunchers sounds……nasty. Fed your name can be the irregulator.

    Re: David’s plans in the works.

    One can only hope to see David on stage again soon, but if it is too much to ask right now, I will be more than happy with whatever I get.

    Melissa (*_*)

  51. [David has loads planned, but he’s not telling. – Features Editor]

    Great news. If David’s willing to plan, I’m willing to wait.

  52. Yes, Frank, Gabrielle, Erin, Matt, Thomas, George, Angelo, and whomever other chatters I’m forgetting (apologies) –- A rather spammy sprawl in which we were located today….

    …..I dare speak for the lot of us that we deeply regret our spam-fed Fed was absent. However, we take cheer in the fact that our fearless leader was, in fact, out fighting bravely against the arch-enemy, “The Server of Spam”, ridding the Cyber-World Of DG as we know it of such nasty, naughty, notorious SPAM!!!

    We thank you for your continued spam-loathing valor, Fearless Spam-fed Fed, from the very depths of our spam-ridden bowels!

  53. sorry FE’d I have to apologise in advance

    just so happy I had to share the news that I got tickets for Roger’s show at the men arena manchester, block b row p front and centre! my home town

    sorry , just so happy

    any chance David wants to put on the occasional gig so my musical life can be complete?

    dont think I could possibly wait a decade for an album and tour and everyone loves David, the whole world would show up

    [Where were you when David played at Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall in May?! – Features Editor]

  54. Fed – I’m guessing PixelFury is a four letter word in your book. They really seem to be having problems lately.

    [It’s the second best album released this year, in my opinion. – Features Editor]

    I’m going to get my hands on the James Dean Bradfield album on your high recommendation.

    [I hope you like it, mate. – Features Editor]

  55. [We could clone them and teach their clones how to play thier respective instruments.]

    Nah, you know they broke the mold when they made David. He’s one of a kind;-)

  56. in scotland trying to gets tickets for the armadillo :((((

    made a mistake with my dates and was looking for tickets at the wrong time. nearly made it to gdansk tho, but the late arrival of a passport meant it fell through. if I’d known you could do somethings a simple as buying advance tickets online… d’oh

    andy.

    [Hard luck, mate. – Features Editor]

  57. Hey Fed, I got that album you mentioned, James Dean Bradfield’s solo. It IS really good. Thanks for the recommendation, and keep em coming! I’m always on the lookout for good music, and David just can’t make it fast enough 😉

    ~Erin

    LG – LOL thanks for the morning laugh!

    [I’m really pleased to hear that you like it, Erin. Look out for any Manic Street Preachers album. He’s their voice and guitar. Their early stuff is more punky, by the way. – Features Editor]

  58. Settle down ladies, I was being entirely facetious in my post regarding the hens and chicks amongst us being called Panty Bunchers! I much prefer being a Gilmourette … I have visions of the ladies up on the platform providing back-up voices for David and the guys (with the exception of Erin who will have her Strat in hand doing some string bending of her own).

    Ever since Erin brought up ‘getting our panties in a bunch’ it seems to have taken on a life of it’s own. Chat was hilarious with so many variations on the ‘theme’ … and now LG has proclaimed Rudders to be a Canadian Coconut as well as a Muncher … oh dear, what to do, what to do?

    Think about Monday Gilmourettes so as not to get said panties in a bunch!! This ladies competition has gotten us all atwitter.

    Peace and love everyone!

  59. pink loyd could never be repeated becuse they are so unique but also because bands dont have the luxury that p.f. had at not being a commercial success for 6 years…

    darkside would have never happened b/c today’s record co.’s would have dropped them. it is totally different now…just look at ‘almost famous’ when philip seymour hoffman’s character said ‘they will ruin rock n roll’…and ‘they’ did!

    a load of crap all over the airwaves…and mtv, whoah…what a oad of crap. dont even play videos. just think of all the grreat music we are being deprived of…the modern-day ‘darkside’ if you will is just “poof”! very sad

    sorry for my soap-box!

  60. Rudders, you are my favorite caption! En français ,vous etes ma légende préférée sur ce blog, vraiement… indeed!

    I think what you are saying is very valid. However, I think we as a society have done it to ourselves. People tend to want instant gradification.

  62. To everyone who thinks MTV sucks now:

    Check in your area for “The Tube 24 hour Music Network”. In the states in some places it is only available if you subscribe to HDTV. I see David Gilmour videos(mostly strat 50th anniv stuff), PF,all the best 80’s videos and some newer stuff. It rocks like old school MTV.

    Another good music video channel is IMF (International Music Feed)
