As we approach the first anniversary of Syd Barrett’s death, it’s a genuine pleasure to be able to say that the video to his poignant song, ‘Dark Globe’, will be included on David’s ‘Remember That Night’ DVD.
David covered this song twice during his summer tour of Europe, and talks about his decision to first perform it – at Austria’s Klam Castle – on ‘Breaking Bread, Drinking Wine’, Gavin Elder’s tour documentary.
‘Breaking Bread, Drinking Wine’ is one of many extras on Disc Two. We’ll tell you about another tomorrow.
Don’t forget that BBC Radio has put together a new documentary about Syd, which is coming up later this month.
‘The Thing About Syd’ is on BBC Radio 2 on Saturday 14 July.
David is one of many people interviewed for this programme, along with other members of Pink Floyd, band manager Peter Jenner and various editors from the music press.
I’ll remind you that it’s coming up a little closer to the time.
The chatroom will be open between the hours of 12PM and 2PM (UK time) today, so do pop in if you want to be social.
