Raphael Ravenscroft Passes Sadly another Pink Floyd associate has gone to the great gig in the sky. Sax player Raphael Ravenscroft, who played Tenor Sax on 'The Final Cut' and toured with David Gilmour on his 'About Face' Tour in 1984 has died of a suspected heart attack at the age of 60. Raphael was probably best known for the instrumental segment of Gerry Rafferty's 'Baker Street' and it's said that he was still earning about £80,000 a year in royalties from his part in Rafferty's hit single more than 30 years after the song was released in 1978. The clip below features Raphael playing sax on David's 'There's No Way Out Of Here' at the Hammersmith Odeon in 1984.

Louder Than Words All we can say is WOW! The song was first played on the Chris Evans show on BBC2 Radio on 9 Oct. Obviously the song is copyright so we are unable to bring it directly to you, BUT you can listen in to the full show where the song is played twice, once at the 1 Hour 10 minute & 10 second spot and at 2 hours 53 minutes & 42 seconds, although the latter broadcast has a voice over during the guitar solo, so avoid!! Also in a World Exclusive interview Nick and David chat to BBC Radio 6 Music's Matt Everitt about the release of 'The Endless River'. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p0288yhn
 
Get Ready For Airplay! Listen out this Thursday (9 Oct.) as a track from 'The Endless River' will be played on some radio stations. In the UK the Chris Evans show on BBC radio 2 will air a track at 8.15am (UK) (which song is unknown but at a wild guess it could be Louder Than Words, although that is pure speculation UPDATE Radio Stations are reporting that the song will indeed be 'Louder Than Words') . Chicago radio station 97.9 The Loop, Radio Station 97.9 in Tampa and 102.1 San Diego KPRI will also air a track that day (Time/s unknown). Obviously there will be more radio stations playing this than we have listed, so we suggest you check with you local radio station if they will be playing it. Send us your thoughts about the track as soon as you hear it and we may feature it on site. (Filed 6 & 7 Oct)
 
More Vocals? (SPOILERS AHEAD) Web site gobuz have issued a list of credits that they claim to be from The Endless River. Of particular interest are the entries for 'Anisina', Talkin' Hawkin' and 'Surfacing' which all give credits to David Gilmour for backing vocals. UPDATE The credits have now been removed from that site.

A Statement From Roger Waters
Dear Friends: Some people have been asking Laurie, my wife, about a new album I have coming out in November. Errhh? I don’t have an album coming out, they are probably confused. David Gilmour and Nick Mason have an album coming out. It’s called Endless River. David and Nick constitute the group Pink Floyd. I on the other hand, am not part of Pink Floyd. I left Pink Floyd in 1985, that’s 29 years ago. I had nothing to do with either of the Pink Floyd studio albums, Momentary Lapse of Reason and The Division Bell, nor the Pink Floyd tours of 1987 and 1994, and I have nothing to do with Endless River. Phew! This is not rocket science people, get a grip.
 
The Wall On Broadway Looks as if this is going to happen! Originally a week-long workshop was planned for January but from what we understand this didn't go ahead until later this year (we don't have a date). Roger was in attendance, and our information is that Phil Bateman (Musical Director Billy Elliot the Musical) along with writer Lee Hall (Screenplay Billy Elliot), actor Ben Eagle and director Simon McBurney and various other cast members were also there.. No date has yet been announced. (Picture copyright Ben Eagle (click to enlarge) and thanks for the heads up go to Beckettp)
 
Pink Floyd Exhibition Shock! We have received information from an UNOFFICIAL source that the Pink Floyd Exhibition planned for Milan has been cancelled. We repeat, this information comes from a completely unofficial source. It's claimed that all parties concerned have broken their backs over the last 2 weeks to make the exhibition happen but due to a variety of reasons the event will not go ahead. We are told that the Milan City Administration would not allow the Pink Floyd Exhibition to go past it's proposed finish date (18 January 2015) as other exhibitions had already been booked. Apparently a lot of construction of the Exhibition had already been undertaken in London. We are also advised that apparently all items that were due to be displayed are still in London (We were wrong thinking the Division Bell heads were in Milan as we mentioned in a previous report). We have no word on how to get refunds (if this turns out to be true) but no doubt that information will surface soon. We are expecting a statement to be issued by the Milan organisers (Evolve Devolve) soon. Again, we must stress that this information is completely unofficial and we suggest that you wait for an official statement to be made before you go seeking refunds. (Filed 29 Sept) The above information comes from an anonymous source although we wish to place on record our thanks to "Cymbaline: Pink Floyd Fan Club" (Italy) UPDATE: The picture above to the right (click to enlarge) shows an obviously empty Fabbrica del Vapore (where the Milan exhibition was to be held). With thanks to Cymbaline - Italian Pink Floyd Fan Club FURTHER UPDATE: The official Pink Floyd Exhibition Twitter page has been updated to say "Refund (sic) will be accessible also after 30th October 2014 in case of cancellation" (Our emphasis). EVEN MORE! The organisers of the event in Milan have circulated an email to those who had already purchased tickets. In essence it states that purchasers can seek a refund by going to http://www.vivaticket.it/index.php?nvpg[rimborso] no later than November 10. LAST UPDATE Pink Floyd Exhibition Milan DEFINITELY Cancelled As we have been telling you for some weeks now, The Pink Floyd Exhibition in Milan has been CANCELLED. The organiser have finally made a statement about it on their Twitter Page with details on how ticket purchasers can get a refund.

Roger Waters Sings For The Bertrand Russell Tribunal On Palestine In a Jim Ladd interview back in May 2012 Roger said "I have written a song over the last few months which may well prove to be the middle, well not the middle but the starting point for a new album, my first one in 20 years, which is actually called "If I Had Been God". Roger is understood to have rehearsed the new song several times at sound checks on his 2013 tour (the song being known as 'If I Had Been God (Lay Down Jerusalem)' and various snippets have been seen around the web. However, on 25 September Roger performed the song in full for the special session of the Bertrand Russell Tribunal On Palestine held at the premises of the European Parliament in Brussels.

The Endless River Officially Announced

Finally the long awaited details of Pink Floyd's new album have been released.

The Endless River has as its starting point the music that came from the 1993 Division Bell sessions, when David Gilmour, Rick Wright and Nick Mason played freely together at Britannia Row and Astoria studios. This was the first time they had done so since the ‘Wish You Were Here’ sessions in the seventies. Those sessions resulted in The Division Bell, the band’s last studio album.

In 2013 David Gilmour and Nick Mason revisited the music from those sessions and decided that the tracks should be made available as part of the Pink Floyd repertoire. It would be the last time the three of them would be heard together. The band have spent the last year recording and upgrading the music,using the advantages of modern studio technology to create The Endless River.

The Endless River is a tribute to Rick Wright, whose keyboards are at the heart of the Pink Floyd sound. It is a mainly instrumental album with one song, ‘Louder Than Words’, (with new lyrics by Polly Samson), arranged across four sides and produced by David Gilmour, Phil Manzanera, Youth and Andy Jackson.

The new album comes in several formats:

GERMANY - STANDARD CD / DOUBLE VINYL / CD & BLU-RAY / CD & DVD
