If you missed it yesterday, David will perform at one – just one – of Roger Waters’ forthcoming Wall concerts; his part of the deal in getting Roger to join him on stage on Saturday. (Please see the previous post if you’ve been holidaying underneath a large rock for the past week and know nothing about this now sacred day which some speak of.)
Roger has explained how it all came to be over at Facebook, so do be sure to read that if you haven’t already done so.
Although fully aware that it will be buried amidst the ongoing and increasing excitement since Saturday’s surprise reunion, which benefited the Hoping Foundation, and granted that it isn’t anything new (but was considered worth a tweet earlier this afternoon), I’ll wrap up what has been an eventful week by presenting to you the results of a simple poll, should you welcome an innocuous distraction from speculation, hope and intrigue. We haven’t had one of these in some time and it’s not good to get too excited about anything, don’t forget.
Take a look at Gibson.com’s
bloody appalling somewhat contentious (sorry, I may be biased, but 41st?!) list promising to herald the Top 50 Guitarists of All Time. Results of a readers’ poll are also included. You may jeer, boo and hiss as you rearrange either of these lists to suit your own liking and add the notable omissions in place of the apparent imposters, which I hope you can share with the rest of us. Any combination of fist-shaking, eye-rolling and name-calling will also be permitted during this exercise.
Now, someone with far greater knowledge of guitars than I ever will possess ought to point out to the suspicious which of the 50 are principally found to favour a Gibson guitar hanging from their shoulders, because that would be revealing.
Have a very good weekend, everyone, and thanks again for giving your reaction to the temporary reunion – both past and future.
