    A week or so back @DerekK19 posted a thread showing Gilmour's black Strat that was being displayed as part of an exhibit at the V&A museum in London. https://www.strat-talk.com/threads/the-black-strat.444800/

    As I've been in London this week I finally got a chance to see the exhibit (Pink Floyd: Their Mortal Remains). https://www.vam.ac.uk/exhibitions/p...MIgKCjpv_P1QIV6rXtCh163AfzEAAYASAAEgI2KfD_BwE

    It was a visual and audio tour through their entire history. What made it nice was they provided you with a great set of headphones and a unit that automatically changed the audio as you approached each exhibit. Each room was generally dedicated to a different period or album and on display would be various instruments, tour gear and props, and TVs playing interviews of the band. By far the most impressive room was the props from The Wall with the actual Schoolmaster which looked about 20 ft tall. Of course the collection of Gilmour's guitars were drool worthy. My only real complaint was that the Animals album was IMO a bit under-represented but that's a small nit.

    The exhibit is playing through October 1 for those living or visiting London. Definitely worth the 20 GBP price (24 on weekends) if you're a PF fan.

    Great pics!

    I might have seen some of that stuff when the Rock 'N Roll hall of fame had a Pink Floyd exhibit.

    Also used to play with a guy who said he was a roadie on The Wall tour. Said the crew stacked big white foam bricks in front of the band during the show. At the end, during The Trial on "tear down the wall" they knocked it over.

    Might have been a bit of a BS'er, since he claimed to be a diver on the crew that discovered the wreck The Atocha for Mel Fisher in Key West. He was a diver, and carried a receipt in his pocket for some pre Columbian artifacts he'd brought up that he sold to Mel Fisher.

    Hand written invoice, said "Mel and Scotty are all square."

    I studied the salvage of that wreck, and there was a list of the original team. Scott Chelsea wasn't on it.

    The V&A is one of a cluster of fantastic museums just round the corner from the Albert Hall and are great places to kill time ahead of any event there. Loads places to eat at South Kensington and being in the midst of all the Embassies and Consulates it's quite a safe area too.

    Still tickets available for Neil Sedaka, if I can persuade our crowd to go....then I can have another moosey round the PF exhibition.

    Me too!! Writing songs that long while somehow managing to avoid being boring and pretentious was an amazing feat. And it has some of Gilmour's best moments. Those shimmery dramatic chords that take out Sheep give me goose bumps.
