Jon Carin - France, September 2015Our best wishes, and many happy returns to Jon Carin, who today celebrates his birthday (Monday, 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 + Them tours. This saw Jon as a key member of Roger's band for the mammoth tour, which saw the show thrill audiences across the world - live or at the recent cinema screenings, with Jon playing keyboards, guitar and more during the show.

Elsewhere, he spent a whole year working with Kate Bush on her triumphant return to the live stage, in a sequence of shows which were held at London's Eventim Apollo from August to the start of October, five years ago. The picture here shows Jon before David Gilmour's September 2015 concert in Orange, France, which was praised as one of the best shows of that year's tour. Jon seems to be constantly in demand, and kept very busy - a testament to what he brings to musical projects.

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!
