Alas, we’ve sadly come to the last pair of shoes…
Do you know who they belong to? For the very last time, let us know whose shoes you think they are – and include an interesting fact about this person, if you can.
The last pair belonged to Steve DiStanislao. Congratulations to those who guessed correctly.
Stevie has very kindly agreed to answer some of your questions, as Guy did recently. So, if there’s anything you’re itching to find out, please jot your thoughts down – but don’t send them just yet.
Details to follow later in the week, so please hold on to your questions until then.
In the meantime, here’s more from Guy.
What did you get Rick for Father’s Day? (Matt Parish)
Nothing, seeing as he’s not my father. It’s not a big day ’round our house, to be honest.
Do you get along with your father-in-law and have you ever purchased any of his solo efforts? (John NFF)
It is extraordinary that anyone thinks I would actually say I didn’t get on with Rick on a public forum. So, yes, I do. I have been around the world with him four times, and even sailed the Atlantic with him; I truly love the man… I did actually buy ‘Wet Dream’, but by the time ‘Broken China’ came out I was with Gala, so we got given one.
How did you happen to meet David? (Gian Luca)
Through Dream Academy and then Bryan Ferry.
Were you a Pink Floyd fan during your teenage years? (IMcK)
I went to ‘The Wall’ shows at Earl’s Court: front row, every night, both years, once on Acid. I knew then it was the best show I would ever see… and it’s quite sad that, 26 years later, I was right.
What’s your absolute favourite Pink Floyd or David Gilmour song? (Bas Swanenberg)
‘Comfortably Numb’, ‘I Can’t Breathe Anymore’.
What did you think about Roger playing with Pink Floyd at Live8? (Beau)
I was all for it, it was high time they sorted things out, although sadly David asked me to play on ‘Wish You Were Here’ and I had to say no as I was booked to play in Berlin with Roxy Music. That wasn’t easy, I tell you. We’d finished and were having dinner by the time Floyd went on, but there was no telly, so I was getting running commentary text messages from practically everyone I know every 10 seconds. I didn’t get to see it ’til about two weeks later.
Is it true that Roger Waters asked you to play bass on his ‘Amused To Death’ album? (Werner)
Good question! Roger didn’t, but his producer, my dear friend Pat Leonard, did. I asked David if it would be OK, and of course he said yes, but I think Pat bottled out of asking Roger… Probably for the best, as I live over here, if you know what I mean.
