David will be playing 'Remember a day' and 'The blue' as a tribute to Rick.

Did anyone see Later? I really felt for David Gilmour, he looked so sad Crying or Very sad
The band done really well though and it was a fitting tribute to Rick.

Did anyone hear the documentary 'Remember A Day'? I feel sorry for his wife, Millie, whose depression inspired the 'Broken China' album.

I also cried more over the David Gilmour Gdansk concert on BBC-4 than I did over the Mamma Mia movie. I'd seen the latter Abba karaoke effort the week Wright died and I don't recommend being in a state of serious upset while everyone else is singing bloody Dancing Queen! Sad

Admittedly I'd come to the end of a job contract too.
