Jon Carin, Toronto, July 2007Many happy returns to Jon Carin, who today celebrates his birthday (Tuesday, October 21st).

The talented multi-instrumentalist has been a key part of the Pink Floyd operation since 1985, and more recently toured with David Gilmour on his On An Island tour, and Roger Waters on his Dark Side Of The Moon tour which was followed, of course, by The Wall Live. This saw Jon as a key member of Roger's band for the mammoth tour, which saw the show thrill audiences in North and South America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand, with Jon playing keyboards, guitar and more during the show.

Since then, he has 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 this month. Those who saw any of Kate's concerts (including from the Floydian world David and Polly, and James Guthrie) were in for a treat, and Jon was a key member of the band. A DVD and Blu-ray is due to be released at some point for all those who weren't able to see the show in the flesh (and for those who want to enjoy it all over again!).

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!

Have a great day, Jon!
