Throughout the rest of the month, fans in Mexico City will be able to see David’s performance at the Strat Pack concert on television.
It’s available on Cablevision, on Channel 106, so do look out for it.
The 2004 benefit concert was in aid of Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy, a UK organisation which uses music therapy to prove that everyone can respond to music, regardless of illness or disability.
David played the tracks ‘Marooned’, ‘Coming Back To Life’ and ‘Sorrow’, as well as giving everyone a glimpse of his famed 1954 Stratocaster with the 0001 serial number (as shown above).
David’s friend and ‘On An Island’ collaborator, Phil Manzanera, also performed, along with a host of legendary guitarists – which included Hank Marvin, Brian May, Joe Walsh and Ronnie Wood.
The concert is available on DVD as ‘The Strat Pack: The 50th Anniversary Of The Fender Stratocaster’.
Our thanks to Paul B for letting us know.
There’s no chat today, but our chatroom will be open on Wednesday from 10AM (UK). Doors will be closing with a cyber-slam at 12PM (UK), but that really has nothing to do with a certain football match.
Everyone is welcome to drop by, particularly those wearing red.
