Ross’ website features an online diary/blog in which he had the following to say on 2nd February 2006:

“Today I am shooting outdoors. It is of course FREEZING… My subject is David Gilmour of Pink Floyd, or Diamond Dave to his friends. I’m not expecting this to go well. His PR had expressed (in a Felicity Kendall voice) no interest whatsoever in what I was trying to do. When I voiced concern about the time limit set by them, all I got was ‘HAVEN’T YOU HEARD OF RE-TOUCHING?’ So I was not looking forward to this. Well, Diamond Dave turned up on time. He was the politest and nicest musician I’ve dealt with since Rory Gallagher, I was shocked. I was shooting on his boathouse which is his studio floating on the Thames. It was a pleasure to work with him.”

If anybody wants to buy me a print, then please do!!!
