It’s a screenshot from David’s forthcoming DVD, ‘Remember That Night’, which is released next month.
Speaking of which, I’m glad that you like the new EPK. If you haven’t seen it yet, click here.
Please keep your questions for David coming – here, not here – but only if you’re in North America, any other Sony region, or if you will be attending one of the 166 cinemas across Canada and the US on Saturday 15 September.
There are some very good ones so far. Thank you for making it difficult to select the best.
However, if you’ve already sent one in, that’s your lot. It’s strictly one-question-per-person. Submitting a second will mean that both of your questions will be ignored (yes, I’m spiteful like that), so please don’t bother.
You have until 5PM (UK) tomorrow to submit your question, so don’t leave it too late. No further questions for the North American premiere will be accepted after this time.
There will, however, be a separate entry for anyone in Europe/those who shall be seeing the cinematic premiere of ‘Remember That Night’ on Thursday 6 September in Europe. That will be here on Monday.
Below are some more of Phil Manzanera’s answers to your questions.
I heard on an interview that if David was not a musician, he might be flying planes?! How about you, if you were not a musician, what would you be doing? (Veronica from Miami)
A Cuban revolutionary, like my mate Che!
What was your inspiration to pick up the guitar? (AxPxM88)
Spanish guitar was inspired by my mother’s playing, and electric to get girls!
When did you first start playing guitar? (Chris Hampton)
Age seven in Havana, Cuba on my mum’s Spanish guitar, learning Cuban folk songs.
Did you know how to read music when you took up guitar? (Jan)
I didn’t want to learn how to read music. I sent off from Venezuela to London for a book that I thought would show me pictures of where to put my fingers on the fretboard, but instead they sent me a course on blue carbon paper about music theory, so any port in a storm, I inadvertently learnt something about it. Of course, reading the dots is a complete hindrance to Rock and Roll.
