COMMENTS

David Gilmour's 60th birthday was marked by a large, private party held at the sumptious Porchester Hall in west London. In an unusual twist, the music at his party was provided by him and his band - which served as an album launch, and live debut of the material. It also meant that they were able to perform their first live show in front of a "safe" audience, in preparation for the public unveiling that was to follow the next evening at the Mermaid Theatre for the BBC.

Amongst David's guests were a number of past and present colleagues, including Robert Wyatt, Nick Mason, Bob Geldof and Rado ("Bob") Klose. Others there included the likes of Damon Hill and Ewan McGregor...

The band were said to be on great form, no doubt a little relaxed as they had little to prove to their friends and families. Guy Pratt was also reported as doing a small part of his stand-up show, to much amusement from those assembled.

Finally, a very special, and rather apt cake was made for the occasion...
