For Douglas Adams’s 42nd birthday his friend David Gilmour gave him the opportunity to join Pink Floyd on stage during their 1994 tour live at Earls Court in London. Douglas played rhythm guitar on the tracks Eclipse and Brain Damage. While it was always known by Douglas’ family that the concert had been filmed by someone in the audience, the tape of the event could never be found. That is, until now.
Douglas’ brother James Thrift finally unearthed the tape in the authors Islington home, and so, at last it is here for you’ll to enjoy. The sound quality is as you might expect from a 20 year old handheld video recording of a live concert, but at the end of the day, who cares.
This is Douglas Adams and Pink Floyd, on stage, together. Enjoy.
