Besides the news that Marillion* is coming to the States this autumn for the first time in seven years (check out where they happen to be playing on October 6th, my birthday — woo-hoo!), I dug up the Official Pink Floyd website this morning. I’m not sure why, but I was suddenly in the mood to see what’s up with the kings of pomp.
Sadly, nothing, really, but there’s a link on the page above to a David Gilmour concert DVD from 2001. I knew about this show, but hadn’t seen anything from it. There’s two full songs — Shine On You Crazy Diamond, and Comfortably Numb — available, and it’s cool to see Bob Geldof out on stage with Gilmour for Comfortably Numb, arguably one of my favorite songs on The Wall album.
If you’re in the mood, click above and follow the link to the Gilmour section and treat yourself to two excellent versions of Floyd classics.
* You may recall Marillion from the Eighties and their somewhat big hit, Kayleigh. They’re still around, making some of their best music in years.
