Wow, what a great tribute to one of the best bands ever, also a great venue as one of the norths finest nightclubs. Brings back lots of happy memories, my wife used to love working there back in the eighties. :lol:

Saw Australian Pink Floyd in Malta a few years ago - they were amazing (and 15,000 watched them - cant be many bigger audiences ever for a tribute band than that)

If I remember right, more people turned up to see them than Roger Waters a year (or so) later - he was also very good, and a very moving concert as Sid Barrett died a day before. Remember him singing Dark side of the moon just as the moon rose behind the stage.

That's spooky, reminds me of the superb Counterfiet Beatles Concert in Gudja some time back, after two and a half hours reliving the best of the Beatles they went Back in the U.S.S.R. and half way through the heavens opened, thunder, lightening, hailstone, howling winds and a heavy driving rain brought the whole evening to an abrupt end as everyone including the group fled the scene. That'll be John. :lol:

Brilliant. I regret never having seen Floyd live (or any other pop group, for that matter - last band concert I went to was Duke Ellington at Southampton Guildhall 50-odd years ago).

Not quite true. I saw Art Tatum in Portsmouth a few years later.

Kay and I had a visit in 1997 from one of her old pals from her days in Edinburgh - he was in London playing tenor sax with these guys:

They played Croydon's Fairfield Halls (we got comp tickets), and then Kay's pal and his brother crashed out on our floor overnight. (We didn't have room for them all - we'd only just moved in, and there were boxes everywhere.)

Apparently the following morning they had some trouble meeting up with the rest of the band again - after various missed phone calls and failed rendezvous, it ended up with the rest of the band sticking a Post-It on our front door: "Dear Dumb & Dumber, we're at..."

Great band. Kay's pal has now left them, it seems, but he's still doing stuff:
