"Remember A Day"

>> Friday, September 26, 2008

On September 23, David Gilmour and his touring band performed Richard Wright's "Remember A Day," from A Saucerful Of Secrets (see also: this previous entry in the "Oh By The Way" series on this blog), the second Pink Floyd album, on the Jools Holland show.

Here's the performance:




Gilmour's band--the folks in the above performance--toured with Wright on Gilmour's last tour and (with the exception of the drummer) toured and recorded with Pink Floyd on albums and tours from 1987 on. The other members of the band are: Guy Pratt on bass ('87-'88 tour, '94 tour, The Division Bell, and Wright's son-in-law), Jon Carin on piano ('87-'88 tour, '94 tour, Live8 performance, A Momentary Lapse Of Reason, Bell), former Roxy Music guitarist Phil Manzanera (Lapse), and Steve DiStanislao on drums.

It's a fine performance. And apparently the first time "Remember A Day" has been performed live. A fine tribute by some of his closest colleagues and friends.

Rest in peace, Rick.
