The chatroom will be open today between the hours of 3PM and 5PM (UK time).
Please note that it will be closed at 5PM sharp, so you will not be able to get in should you arrive at five past.
If you do wish to visit, you’re very welcome. You need to register first, but doing so is a doddle. Everything you need to know about the chatroom – from how to register, to our common-sense rules – can be found here.
The chatroom is not open all the time, but opening and closing times for each chat session can be found on the calendar.
If you have any additional questions about the chatroom, please don’t hesitate to ask. But please do see the Chat pages first.
David does not participate in chat sessions.
For the benefit of everybody who asks about chatroom lock-ins:
Put simply, lock-ins are for anyone who shows up before closing time. It gives these people a chance to chat for a bit longer, or to return to the chatroom later should they get disconnected for any reason (a password is set in place).
It’s not a members-only club. Everyone is welcome. If you visit the scheduled chats and don’t piss about, you’re very welcome to the lock-ins. It’s as simple as that.
Do let me know what you think about the chatroom. Your comments are always very welcome and might encourage new fans to join in.

Out of all the guitars you have played, what is your favourite? (Julie Davies)

If you were only able to bring one guitar on tour, which would it be? (Tomi Sue)
The red Gibson Firebird VII.
Please tell us about the translucent guitar you sometimes play: is it an aesthetic, or a sound, preference? (Peter McConnell)
It’s a lovely Yamaha guitar, which sounded very good on stage, which happened to be see through. Some fans thought it was polka dot to match my shirts!
