I think that Fed is, at least should be his main function, a Gilmour pr representative and he expresses the views of his employer to the public. That means that what he sais what Dave thinks. Trouble is that you have to discuss only Gilmours last solo project, which is only top of the iceberg, and to be honest a bit boring. Other Floyd based stuff are mainly not allowed to be discussed there. Well, that sucks. Gilmour, in the eyes of the vast majority of his fans is mainly a part of Pink Floyd. And when people discuss Floyd there is allways a certain amount of contradictions and different views. Fed (and Gilmour) want that blog to be clean of that. With that approach, they should have issued a weekly news sheet that would be distributed on peoples adresses. Not open a blog on the internet. This reminds me of some communist propaganda. We will write how perfect we are and you have to agree or you are an enemy.
Well, fuck that.
very well said.
my feelings are expressed perfectly here.

well, it seams as they're having a massive crash down, seeing there is no update, so far...
apart from a sensational poll (do you miss me? but, how much do you miss me?).
What the hell is that site? I mean...do they really think it's something interesting??!

I hardly believe that Mr. Gilmour ever have any intention to communicate with his fans, in blogs or through web-pages. I don't think he is really confortable with the record company making this arrangement. But I give my best credits to Mr. Pratt for his postings and involvement in Mr Gilmours blog.

The one I really like to see writing is Mr. Nick Mason. THAT MAN knows to express him-self in a manner that I enjoy!

Best regards,
Peter Harold
