Pink Floyd and Duran Duran

Duran Duran tribute

I’ve just finished a three-day weekend playing the music of three of my bass guitar heroes: Roger Waters, Guy Pratt and John Taylor - and three very different playing styles and techniques.

Friday saw us premiere the new 2022 set list for The Wall of Floyd at The Colton Club in Dartford, a two-hour show which included Echoes (split into two parts) and Pigs so a lot of concentration needed to play through these massive tracks.

The set list:

  • Time / Breathe reprise

  • Coming Back To Life

It was then over to Guernsey to catch up with tribute band DURAN for a couple of two-hour shows, culminating in a performance from the balcony at Cobo Bay Hotel to 3,000 people overlooking the beach. An awesome, energy-sapping gig but so much fun. The difference in energy levels between Pink Floyd and Duran Duran are massive but both so equal in enjoyment to play.
