I saw that pop up on the news. Promo for Polly's book in paperback. Mine came today with the signed CD.

How are the three new tracks? Shipping from the UK would've cost twice as much as the book and unsigned CD, so I didn't pull the trigger.

No lyrics/vocals, nice music I guess. Would probably fit nice in the live presentation of the book, rather than standalone songs.

Thanks. One of the more honest moments in pink floyd interview history:

Gilmour: "I don't want to go see a band in a big stadium. Don't mind being in the band. haha"

my guess is he is putting his health first as i am sure he had a health scare after his tour by a tweet Polly put up i could be wrong but at the time it was my first guess.

Do you have a link for that tweet? Or do you remember what did she write?

Keep in mind his son Matt had moved back home to undergo chemotherapy following the Rattle That Lock tour.

"The idea of several thousand people milling together in front of you gives me the heebie-geebies! I'd hate to be doing a gig in front of all those people at this moment in time. Until this thing is total defeated - under control, fairly much worldwide - I'm not going to be doing any shows."

Wonder if we'll get a new album instead then. He seems to be enjoying doing these little livestreams with his family in the Twin Peaks Red Room quite a bit.

I’m glad he’s playing it safe even if I would give my eye teeth to see him play again!

It appears the upcoming Polly with David date at Birmingham has been CANCELLED ... not postponed yet again, but this time it has been cancelled. I assume punters will get their money back but the package as I recall, was a copy of the hardback book, a signed photograph and a ticket to attend; the book and photo were shipped to support the original date.

Where did you see this? There is nothing on the PF website to suggest this.
