This is Nick Masons house

This is me parked on his lawn, with a few others

And this is me with the great man.

Thought you might like to see a couple of his favourite cars as well.

That's what I said.
It was a great run around Wiltshire on the Rotary Club Classic Car Run organised by the Chippenham Rotary Club raising money for the Bobby Van Trust and local charities.

I have got tickets to go see Pink Floyd live in concert in November!

Given that the tickets only cost £20 and the venue is a village hall in Hampshire, I fear they may not be the Pink Floyd.......

Where is that being held? I wouldn't mind seeing that. I saw the Australian Pink Floyd, and they were pretty good

We could slightly freak them out by parking a fleet of E-types outside.....

Malcolm : I bought my 1st E type on a December afternoon in of all places Aberdeen . Leaving about 330pm, ( I had flown up that morning ) it was already going dark, and by Dundee the snow was falling and a howling gale was developing , and I drove it home the near 500 miles to Cheshire !

Get those tickets bought and the car keys in your hands ! :bigrin: :bigrin:

PS It was this experience which convinced me of the superb qualities of the E, because despite perhaps 6 inches of snow and strong crosswinds, even with my inexperience with the car, I never had an anxious moment

Generally speaking it's inadvisable to drive - or attempt pretty much anything else - after immersing yourself in The Floyd for a couple of hours.....

Hoping to see Nick playing next April:

But in the meantime have also got tickets for Australian Pink Floyd and Think Floyd. Both excellent and well worth seeing if you like Floyd's music.

Were you crying because the single malt wasn't very good?
