Hello fellow Floydians!

Post by Harris »

Hi guys,
My name's Andrew, last name Harris, everyone calls me Harris. I'm 27 from South Wales.

I first knew of the Neptune site when it was around before it had the 2.0 retrofit (i'm sure it used to be black and have LOADS of interviews & writeups, need to find those again as i haven't been able to find them on here since the site upgrade!!).
I have to admit i've never posted here before, i first spoke to Keith on Facebook & have been intending on joining here ever since.

I've been into Floyd since admittedly rather late, 2005, yes i was an 'OMG they're on Live 8 wow they're amazing who are they!?' fan, however i very quickly progressed back to Syd, the beginnings of Piper/Saucerful, Meddle when they were in their absolute prime, Pompeii, Dark Side & ownwards :D

So much so i ended up buying a Relic Signature Black Strat:

She's my baby, i paid about £3100 for her, and i play her DAILY. Tone wise she's bang on & i'm extremely happy with it.
Been playing the Live 8 set as well as Dave doing the Strat Pack Marooned & Coming Back To Life, Sorrow, Echoes 1 on Pompeii & some P.U.L.S.E more or less ever since 2005/2006.

Have to be honest i was lucky enough to attend the Wall on Thursday when Dave reformed with Rog:

It was an HONOUR to watch them live & see them work, at 27 I thought i'd never see them live (i had a ticket to Live 8 however i went to the one in Edinburgh). I'm still in shock tbh when i realised what i'd witnessed.

Just want to say hello :smt023

Harris :)

Hello. Bear in mind you are only allowed to post here once every three years or so; at least, that's the rule I seem to have been working to ....

Welcome Harris!

Yes, before NPF became a Web 2.0 database driven thing there were indeed lots of interviews. I borrowed the transcripts from another website PFCO. They "raised objections" about me borrowing them to put on NPF so I removed them.

Anyway....welcome and I hope you will stick around and have fun here. 8)
