The band will be playing early Pink Floyd material and features Guy Pratt on bass, Gary Kemp from Spandau Ballet, Lee Harris from The Blockheads on guitars and Dom Beken from The Orb on Keys. Quite a collection of people really. Not to be missed.

Nick Mason the Heartbeat!

I like that Nick now refers to himself as the “Heartbeat” of Pink Floyd! To help promote his solo tours, Roger Waters often emphasised he was the creative force behind Pink Floyd. David Gilmour duly responded by emphasising he is indeed the voice and guitar of Pink Floyd!
