Very nice, Mouse! Thank you.
How could he possibly knew that if he weren't really a Pink Floyd roadie ?
I think it was cardboard btw.
£25 seems steep. Is it worth the money?
No, it's definitely not cheap (it's 20 if you go on a weekday). If you're just a casual fan then perhaps it's not worth it but they've been one of my favorite bands since I first started buying albums so for me it was worth it. Plus you've got the rest of the V&A at your disposal which is free with regularly scheduled free tours.
Glad you enjoyed it. Hope London is treating you well.
This is by far my fav strat.....
On my flight home bow but I had a great time (when not working) and it's one of my favorite cities. So much so that in a few years time the wife and I are seriously considering moving there if I can work out a transfer. It's still very much in its infancy but it would make a cool 2nd chapter.
Great to hear. Can meet for a jam in a few years then!!
I was under the impression that the body from the Pompeii Strat and "the" black Strat were one and the same. I guess they were two different guitars altogether.
I lived there for 5 years the place is legend I miss the place I am there next weekend guess where I will be going.. cheers mouse..safe journey home mate..
Just spotted this.
Coincidentally I've just got back to Dublin tea time tonight. My wife and I have just spent one week in London. We were at the PF exhibition on Thurs I took plenty of photos which incidentally are very similar to the ones "Mouse" took. I was very surprised "they" let you take photos and vids if you wanted to.
( took in the Bat out of Hell musical at the London coliseum on Friday night. WOW! That's one not to be missed
Could have seen a show from that tour or heard what they did.
I was barely alive when that album came out, but can remember hearing the single ABITW pt. II at the bar my dad drank at (it was on the jukebox, and I'm sure the owner didn't ask for it to be there), and even I know they had a dive bomber open the show, did the entire album with the stage show as best they could of the film.
It was total irony. Almost anybody can tell you about the wall scenery, and the guy doesn't even know in what the Wall was made...
Bumping this thread up,
Did anybody else went to the exebition and have pics they want to share...?
I'm especially looking for more pics of the Black Strat and the Red Strat, the more the better, and the bigger high-def/high-res the better, like from every possible angle of every possible detail...
I know most of who went there probably just took casual "souvenir" pics and not as much ("fanatical") detailed ones, but it doesn't hurt to ask anyway...
Whot...?? "£25 seems steep?? Is it worth the money??"
Are you joking...? If i had the money, for me it would be worth the trip to England alone, never mind a measly £25 for the exhibition fee... Geezzzz...
To be able to be within two feet of Gilmour's strat's and all the PF gear, just separated by a glass display??
I'd easily pay £100 if needed, to get in. I'b probably would spend all day drooling over it and taking, literally, thousands of pics and vids of every little detail of it. The security guard would probably have to kick me out the door after closing time.
Granted however, i'm a certified PF and Gilmour nut case!
Those other "Black Strat's" you see there, other than the original, are just "copies" they commissioned for the exhibition (probably to Fender CS) to illustrate all of the Black Strat's look's and incarnations over the years. Those where never actually used or played by David.
EDIT: BTW, the exhibition is in Italy now i think...
Yes, Rome until 20th May. €20. At Museo d'Arte Contemporanea, which I think would be a fine place to go even without a Floyd exhibition. Much like the V&A is.
I don't know where it's going next but the intention is for it to tour the world for 10 years so it could be coming to "Somewhere" near you.
I'm in Italy, looks like I'm heading to Rome now. Sweet!
I like his live at Pompeii Strat!
Thx for the pics and story of your visit. PF is my favorite!
Huh..?? Where did you get that info...? If it indeed tour the world for 10 years that would be great. However i really don't see David leaving his two main strat's in the exhibition for 10 years and use other copies, either for the new album or for an eventual future tour...
Anyway, my initial request still stands, if anybody has some more pics of the gear from the exhibition they like to share i would be greatfull.
Awesome, as I will not be getting to London, or the UK for that matter due to costs anytime soon (although when I dream of what I would do if I started over today, I would get my doctorate wrapped up and go teach in Britain). I am really hoping that Andy Babiuk, or someone else, makes a Pink Floyd: All the Gear. I have the Stones and Beatles books and they are incredible resources.
