One of my favourite concert films is no doubt Pink Floyd’s Live at Pompeii from 1971. It’s the epic version of Echoes and the almost surreal surroundings […]
Overdrive is probably the trickiest of the pedals and effects. For me at least. I’m constantly searching for that something special and whatever that is, seem to change depending on […]
Fuzz defined the early years of Pink Floyd and David Gilmour’s tones. As it did for pretty much all guitarists in the early days. They came in all shapes and […]
