Meddle, you win a copy of Phil Taylor’s book.
Peter McConnell and James Ward, you each win a set of GHS Boomers for the guitar of your choice, so please let me know whether you want a set of strings for a Fender Strat or a Gibson Les Paul, along with your addresses.
Congratulations to you all.
The final draw takes place on Wednesday.
The chatroom will also be open that day, between 11AM and 1PM (UK).
A quick update on Phil’s book…
It will be available from the larger of the UK’s Borders stores in 2008, not only up until the end of this year, as has been reported. We’d still recommend TheBlackStrat.com for orders, though.
Here’s a wee bit more from Phil’s Q&A to wrap up for another day.
Thanks to Julie and Linda for providing the questions.
What is the most disastrous technical experience you have encountered during a sound check/concert? (Julie Davies)
David’s amplifier/effects rig failing at a Pink Floyd show in Helsinki – during the show. If anybody else in the band’s equipment fails, the show carries on; if David’s fails, the show stops until I get it working. Not much pressure there, then.
What is the best David Gilmour/Pink Floyd gig you ever worked on? (Linda)
Very difficult, there are many reasons for liking different nights. Sometimes just one song from one night can be fantastic. As a tour, the most enjoyable that I have ever done was ‘On an Island’ last year: great music, great band, great crew. The best one I ever saw from the audience – in fact the best gig I have ever been to – was Pink Floyd at Earls Court in London in 1973: a stunning audio-visual-surround experience.
