wywh book coverMany of you entered the recent competition we ran, giving away three signed copies of the new book, "Wish You Were Here: Chapters In The Life Of Rex Roman". Just published, it looks at the life of this British actor (and fading star), whose story is inextricably tied up with his favourite band, Pink Floyd. A very funny book, it is also touching, and has many events and references that Floyd fans will identify with and enjoy, including, allegedly, "the best-kept secret in rock history".

A pair of live concerts are being held this month to formally launch the book, with a live band, supported by stand-up comedians. The band will be playing some NEW Floyd arrangements and just generally celebrating the music of Pink Floyd. And we've got a pair of tickets to give away to one lucky Brain Damage visitor!

UPDATE: Competition now closed - the lucky winners are: Robert Follen, Marc Desaulniers, Michael Mason and Neil Farmer, as Simon Ash decided to make it four pairs of tickets, not just one pair! Thanks Simon, and well done to the winners.

Wish You Were Here Live will be taking place on June 17th and 18th at the Wilde Theatre in Bracknell, Berkshire, UK, and promises to be a great evening. Rex's ultimate plan is for a full-scale stage show to be held (with Simon's help, of course), and this pair of concerts will give you an early chance to experience a flavour of what might be on the horizon. To buy tickets for the show, priced at just £12 each, call the box office on 01344-484-123, or visit the venue website.

But as a Brain Damage visitor you have the chance of winning a pair of tickets to the show, and the winner can pick which of the two nights (June 17th or 18th) that they'd like. The competition ends at midnight on Sunday, June 14th, and the winner will receive an email which he/she redeems at the box office for two 'best in the house' tickets. The winners will be warmly welcomed by the author, Simon Ash, and will be treated to a night of laughter and the music of the greatest band of all-time... Pink Floyd.

The Wilde Theatre is said to be one of the nicest venues outside of London and it's no wonder they call Bracknell the Las Vegas of the Thames Valley!

So to the question:
