    I hope to go and see the exhibition at some point this summer - I think I will be going to London with my family at some point in the next couple of months, don't know when yet though.

    Dawn - glad you enjoyed my Australian Pink Floyd review. They are very, very good (I believe they performed at David Gilmour's 50th birthday party, which must have been nerve-wracking for them!) I will be seeing them again in October this year, should be another great show and it will be interesting to see which things they change up this time.

    If you have access to Sky Arts, you'll probably enjoy Brian Johnson's "A Life on the Road" where he talks with Nick Mason.

    Thanks for the recommendation - will definitely keep an eye out for it! It's funny you mentioned this as I was re-reading his book 'Inside Out - A Personal History of Pink Floyd' just a few days ago (which I'd heartily recommend, it's highly informative and also very funny). I always find Mason an engaging interviewee so it should be good.

    On a vaguely related note, I've just remembered a funny video I've found from an old Top Gear episode, around the time Nick released his book - Nick agreed to let them borrow his Ferrari Enzo for their review of the car if they mentioned his new book. Jeremy Clarkson, a Pink Floyd fan, was only too happy to oblige and the end result is an 'endless river' of PF references throughout!

    There's quite a lot of cars (and a helicopter) in the Brian Johnson interview, too, including the one that was used to back the first Pink Floyd tour without Roger Waters.

    Here’s a very interesting interview with David Gilmour about him selling most of his guitars - over 100, many of them heard on Pink Floyd recordings - for charity. It also gives good insight into his songwriting process. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.rol...on-779721/amp/

    Thanks NMB - Haven't had a chance to read it yet, but it sounds very interesting.

    Jiminy Christmas, I’d love to know who bought Gilmour’s black Strat for almost $4 million. Dang! https://www.guitarworld.com/news/dav...rds-at-auction

    Ok, my guitar circle on FB said they found out that it's Jim Irsay, owner of the Indianapolis Colts NFL team. He owns a LOT of celebrity guitars.
