Jon Carin - France, September 2015Our best wishes, and many happy returns to Jon Carin, who today celebrates his birthday (Wednesday, October 21st).

The talented multi-instrumentalist has been a key part of the Pink Floyd operation for many years, first working with David back in 1985 at the London Live Aid show, with both of them in Bryan Ferry's band, and more recently toured with David Gilmour on his On An Island and Rattle That Lock tours, and Roger Waters on his Dark Side Of The Moon, The Wall Live, and Us And Them tours. These all saw Jon singing, playing keyboards, guitar and more during the shows.

As many of you will be aware, recently Jon released two new songs on Spotify which have been extremely popular, based on the feedback that we have received so far.

Recently, the world marked what would have been John Lennon's 80th birthday, and Jon recorded his version of Gimme Some Truth, a protest song Lennon released in 1971 on his Imagine album. Jon did all the instrumentation on his version of this song. You can hear Jon's version on Spotify now, and here's Jon's Spotify Artist's page. For a thirty second taster of the track, click the play button below:

For those who might have missed it, or want another chance to read it, check out our extensive and exclusive interview with Jon from August 2007. It's full of fascinating insights into his life and work with various top musicians, including (of course) David, Roger, and Pink Floyd.

Hope you are having a great day, Jon!
