Comfortably Numb! 29/4/16
In this wonderful world of music - news travels fast. So it was good to hear from our American correspondent Rick Menniti recently about his Blues trail trip through Mississippi in February plus last week's New Orleans Jazz Fest which included Thursday: Sonny Landreth, Gary Clark Jr., and Tedeschi Trucks, with Billy Gibbons (pictured) and Jimmy Vaughn, Friday: The Revivalists and Paul Simon, and Sunday: Neil Young, Bonnie Raitt and Trombone Shorty! Watch out for a write-up shortly, however, the real reason why Rick got in contact was Dave Gilmour's spine-tingling tribute to Prince during his Royal Albert Hall gig last Sunday. As usual Gilmour let his guitar do the talking during 'Comfortably Numb' (our Vid Of The Day), as he suddenly shifted into an expressive Purple Rain' tribute. Even the lighting went purple!
