The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains in Rome - one week extension Print E-mail
Written by Matt   
Thursday, 17 May 2018

The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains - Rome, Italy from January 2018With the current home of The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains about to close its doors on the Floydian artifacts to the public, there's some great news from Rome's Museo d'Arte Contemporanea di Roma (MACRO) for those who are yet to attend but still want to (and will be in a position to do so).

The exhibition, which opened on January 19th, was due to close on May 20th. However, it has just had an extension of a week (now closing on May 27th), and tickets for the extra period are now on sale via VivaTicket.it, all Vivaticket outlet locations and by phone on +39.041.2719035.

Advance booking is heavily recommended. We'd also advise you to book sessions that start no later than lunchtime if you really want to take your time over the exhibition - we had many reports of people spending five or more hours absorbing all the detail in London!

The video report below shows off some of the exhibition, including (as expected) a different layout to the staging of it at London's Victoria & Albert, and some different items on display. 

Amusingly, at one point in the interview, Roger reveals how he isn't particularly interested at the history of the band on display, more keen on the present and his current projects. Whilst some of the video is in Italian, Nick and Roger's comments are subtitled, not overdubbed.

Once May 27th draws to a close, the exhibition will be carefully taken down, and packed up, ready to head to its next destination...once that is confirmed, we will bring you all the details of its new home!

 
Jeff Beck documentary including David Gilmour contribution: DVD/Blu-ray coming Print E-mail

Still On The Run: The Jeff Beck Story - Blu-ray and DVDOn this coming Friday, May 18th, Still On The Run: The Jeff Beck Story gets a worldwide release via Eagle Rock Entertainment, on DVD and Blu-ray.

Still On The Run: The Jeff Beck Story documents the history of a musical maverick and true innovator, delving below the surface to shed light on the circumstances, inspiration and technicality behind the man and his music. The film features extensive interviews with Jeff both at home and in his workshop, as well as interviews with Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Rod Stewart, David Gilmour, Ronnie Wood, Slash, Jan Hammer, Joe Perry, Beth Hart and many more.

Beck’s childhood saw him surrounded by music; from the endlessly playing radio, to his homemade guitar and the countless hours he spent poring over records and playing music with his friend, Jimmy Page. "I didn't have to think about taking up guitar, I just wanted to pour my feelings into it" said Jeff.

The acclaimed documentary reveals the true story of the guitar player who builds hot rods and captures the excitement and anecdotes of those who have worked alongside him. Jeff Beck has always been a risk taker, on an endless quest for fresh and challenging new sounds. Bending notes and filtering a myriad of musical inspirations, he will continue to inspire fans and musicians alike by giving voice to his guitar in the most unexpected ways.

New issue of UK's Prog magazine looks at Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets Print E-mail

Prog issue 87

The new issue of the UK's Prog Magazine (issue 87) is published on Thursday (May 10th), and includes a feature on Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets amongst its pages.

The article has Nick talking at length about this newly formed band, the reasons for exploring this endeavour, and what the future might bring for the band. He also discusses the sort of material that the band will be playing in the upcoming London shows (all four of which sold out very quickly), and what sort of material they will be steering clear of - and why.

Whilst the article leads with the well known shot of the Floyd wrapped in pink sheets, there IS a picture of "the Saucers" in action during a showcase from a few months ago, giving you a first look at the band, performing at a rehearsal venue in London.

Elsewhere in the magazine, there's a major piece on Marillion's Brave album, with every band member interviewed, and a look at Procol Harum amongst a number of other artists. There's also a cover-mounted CD to listen to whilst you are reading...

You can purchase Prog Magazine, either as single issues or as a subscription, in the UK and also internationally through this direct link. Prog is also available on iPad, Google Play, Kindle and Nook.

New issue of Italian/English Floyd fanzine Heyou Print E-mail

Heyou issue 31

Just published is the latest issue (number 31 - cover date April 2018) of the Pink Floyd fanzine "Heyou" run by our friends over at the Italian website of the same name. The 52-page dual language magazine (in Italian and English), which is published every six months or so, catches up with things in the Floyd world.

The magazine has as its major focus The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains, in both its London AND Rome iterations. The explanation of the London staging is written by a contributor to the magazine, and guides you around the exhibition space. One tiny, glaring error is that the initial letter written by Syd, is credited in the article to Roger Waters, but other than that, it gives a good guide to the event. The Rome rundown is a reprint of an article from the Huffington Post, so doesn't describe the staging in much detail.

Elsewhere there is a large article on the 101-year-old Vera Lynn, best known as 'the force's sweetheart' in the Second World War, still a major force in the music world. Her latest album, Vera Lynn 100, has been nominated for a Classic Brit Award, and she is also up for female artist of the year in those awards. There's also a reprint of an interview with Gavin Elder, director of David Gilmour Live At Pompeii from the Brooklyn Vegan, a review of Roger Waters in Brisbane, Australia from the Courier-Mail, and a look at the Floydseum-organised AyseDeniz Gokcin show in Venice last November.

As with most issues of Heyou, there's a chronological look at things that have happened in the last few months in the news pages, ranging from various magazines published with Floyd content, to re-issues, books published, and more.

More details of the Heyou fanzine can be found at www.heyou.it/fsubscrbd.html, where you can get individual copies, and subscription enquiries (four issues costing 30 euros within Europe, and 40 euros outside Europe) should go to This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it - make sure you mention Brain Damage when you write!
