Today we have some more new music from respected guitarist Chester Kamen. We know that a good number of you have been enjoying these songs. Amongst many other artists, Chester has toured with Roger Waters, joining his band in 2002 and playing on subsequent tours, and with David Gilmour on his 2016 Rattle That Lock tour. He first played with David back in 1985 during the Live Aid show - David and Chester were both part of Bryan Ferry's band for that show (as was Jon Carin).

Chester has, like many musicians, kept himself busy whilst lockdowns and restrictions due to Covid-19 have called a halt to many things - in particular, live performance. In October, he shared his new piece of music called Take This, that runs for over 23 minutes. Chester told us that Take This is the first side of an album he is currently working on - following, or inspired by, the old Floyd blueprint of one long piece and several songs on the flip side. Since then we've seen the first songs on the second side of the album: Brand New Day, Swimming, I'd Love To Turn You, Lover's Lane, Come The Revolution, Child Of The Damned, and Stories.

The new song from Chester is called The Wife of The Spy Who Came in From the Cold - quite a title! Chester told us: "I set myself a challenge to write a straight twelve bar blues without reference to blues tradition, in much the same way as Bob Dylan does. For me it was very interesting, I hope for others too. Lots of guitar on this one with great drums by Saleem Raman and breakneck bass by Jovan Radujko."

We'll update you as he progresses with the rest of the album, as we know from feedback we've had that the songs are proving very popular.
